Abbey Goes to Groomers

Our little girl Abby goes to the groomers for the first time today since she has come to live with us. We have been doing our best to clip her at home. She is a Shih Tzu. To me Shih Tuz means lots of hair! We have had her since last July and haven't taken her to a groomer because we wanted her to trust us first. She was abandon and we don't know her history. She gets nervous and we didn't want to scare her to badly.

She didn't need a groomer when we first got her because she didn't have much hair. She was so infested with fleas that most of her hair was gone. She now has a beautiful coat of hair and it needs to be groomed by a professional.

This picture was taken after she had been treated for the fleas and her coat was growing back in.


We will post pictures later of the results of her day at the groomers.

  3. That's nice you waited to give her a chance to settle in with you. She is very cute. Hopefully the grooming won't be too stressful for her.

  5. It's so easy to spoil a little one. Why would anyone abandon a cutie pie like that?! We just bought a kangaroo pouch to carry Smudge in on our bike rides next year. Yep, she's spoiled.
