Midnight dog grooming, wait, what?

Okay. I know what you are all thinking. Weird! Well in case you did not know this, my bff dog Rocco is a Maltese. This breed of dog does not have fur. They have hair that just keeps growing and growing (even between his toes). Their hair is very very fine and knots and mats easily (he started to get dreadlocks–not kidding mon). I have been meaning to get him groomed, but the $50 never appeared in my purse and I procrastinated on calling Poochies Parlor (Rocco’s hair stylist :P).

Since Rock sleeps in bed with us, I was falling asleep and petting him. I felt his nappy dreads, and I felt like a horrible dog mommy. It was eleven o’clock. I sprung out of bed in my night-shirt and underoos, grabbed the pup and a pair of scissors and headed into the bathroom. Poor Wee Dog entered the bathroom like this

After I had an Edward Scissor Hands moment, we emerged from the bathroom about 25 minutes later. He was freshly cut, and I could finally sleep!

Sweet Relief! Kind of a hack job, but hey, what do you expect when you cut your dog’s hair with one eye open?!

    Where did you get the rug in front of your sink?? I reeeally like it πŸ™‚

    • $17 at Ikea. Ikea has some really nice rugs for cheap. This is actually our 2nd time buying this very rug. The first time it got ruined because I spilled my still gooey pecan pie all over it from Thanksgiving. I found it in the last chance dept. and got it for $5 off because it didn’t come in a plastic case. Go figure.
