Where is my hairy doodle gone?

Post by oakesr » 29 Mar 2014, 14:04

Left the OH to take Roma to the groomers; before and after pics below :cry: My lovely hairy dood has gone, replaced by a skinny Labrador. How long til it grows back???

Apparently OH said "give her a number 1, zzzzzzzz" and thought the groomer would "know he was joking" :evil: "No, you idiot she will do what you tell her to do and give a bl00dy number 1!!!!"

Oh god!! :lol: Not the cut... hubbys mistake :lol: :lol:
Honestly, she looks great! Only a slight difference in the photos!
Unless it's just the photo!?

She'll grow back in about 6 weeks, nay fret!! :D

Don't be too hard on hubby, at least he has a GSOH! Hold onto that fact :lol: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I have pixie done that short every 10 weeks. The groomer does leave trimmed eyebrows beard and moustache. But it does grow back about 6 weeks and she will be really easy to groom and dry off
She is still very very pretty

Well I think she looks lovely, I'm planning on getting some clippers and doing Ted myself to save the expense and I shall use your picture as a guide! I bet she'll appreciate in this sunshine! :D

I suppose she looks 'tidy' and nice and shiny and it probably feels nicer for her but....she's not my scruffy dood :roll:

And Jennifer please don't clip lovely Ted like Roma!! He's all lovely and hairy!

You probably can't see from the photos but her coat is as short as a dobermans!

She looks lovely. I've seen worse, much worse and mostly in this house too. My OH once clipped my beautiful curly chocolate baby girl in the style of a permanently surprised poodle - you know the style, very similar to the one my mum inflicted on me when she decided to trim my fringe while I was wearing my brownie hat :shock: I honestly wouldn't have believed such a pretty dog could ever look so dog gam ugly :lol:
Last year Scarlet's (my big black girly who looks so much like Roma) eyebrows fell out altogether (never did get to the bottom of why) and she looked so strange for a few weeks but they grew back, grey though, and are now her crowning glory once again.
Enjoy the few weeks you have without lots of brushing, fur balls rolling around everywhere and soggy towels after each walk - her hair will soon grow back.

I'm sure your OH was just thinking about the importance of getting his money's worth, there are groomers around here who are quite happy to charge £45 for a bath :shock: .

Also due to the high demand for groomers, many seem to be getting a bit selective, turning away difficult jobs and just going after the easy money :roll: .

Your dood looks fine,

Oscar & hoomans.

Well at least she won't have to go back for a while :lol:. I hope that you have forgiven him now, he can't help being an idiot at times - he's a man (head now ducking down while waiting for the flak to arrive :lol: :lol: :lol: ).

Aw, I think she looks really cute, and provably feels great, but I know what you mean- she will look like a different dog to you . But a few weeks, and she'll be your hairy Dood again!

Daren't even post a pic of Bonny. She had been cut soooo short when I collected her from the groomers. It's sort of growing on us though...and it's nice to see what her body looks like underneath all that fur. You'll get used to it in a day or two :D
