I may or may not have....

Allowed my mom to cut miss Daisy Mae this last weekend with her horse clippers. Yes ladies, our more-than-matted labradoodle needed HORSE hair clippers to get through her fur. I tried to save a buck by letting mi madre do it, but I think I may have made a mistake :( She just doesn't look that cute....at.all. I feel like the worst mom ever!! Not that the groomers would have done any better. I mean come on, when your dog is matted, there is nothing left to do but cut down to the mats which in our case was to her skin. I'm sure our vet thought she was a rescue dog or something last time we took her in. Problem is, we only got half of her cut because her head and upper body took us about 2 hours! Yeah, no pictures of this one. She may or may not look like this:
{Disclaimer: this is not, I repeat, NOT my Daisy, but how funny is it?}

Moral of the story: Friends, don't let friends (err, mom) cut your dog's hair :) Aaron is horrified, I still love her and think she's cute; as only a mother would, but I am a little horrified too. Let's just say that she'll be an inside dog until this grows back.....

OMG. Wow....that poor doggy!! Good luck getting all of the matted fur taken care of. We had to shave our family dog during the summer because her coat was so thick and one year the groomer accidently shaved her body...AND her tail! The poor dog thought her tail was a rat or something and was attacking it so much it was raw and bloody! We had to put the Elizabethan collar on her until her fur started coming back in hahaha.

LoL LoL Awww!! I grew up with a Golden (a little less hair than the doodle, but A LOT of hair, nonetheless) and we had to shave her one year because of the heat and mats. Poor thing looked like a sheep that was just shaved to make a blanket! The good news is it grows back in no time!! Too funny, though!

My bf and I washed and groomed his dog last week and it was a complete debacle getting him to sit still in the sink.... I feel for you!! But I would never let my mom cut the dog's hair, hahah xoxo

I wandered over from d.a.r.'s blog... I hope you don't mind. :-)

My poor Cocker Spaniel gets sooo matted that I end up giving her a buzz cut at least once a year. Your poor baby! I'm sure she's still cute to you, and that's all that counts!!

That picture was funny, I'm sorry!

Don't worry. This is a good lesson to teach her beauty is on the inside.
