I think it was around $50 which seems like a lot, but when you stop to think that I was paying $35 each month for someone else to do it, it makes sense. So, Wednesday night, I decided to go for it. I sat down in the middle of the kitchen floor and just kinda went to town on poor Paddy. He was not a huge fan of the clippers. Or the scissors for that matter. But I think he turned out pretty good for a first try! The hardest part was by far his face. I had to use only scissors for that. He was quite the trooper through the whole ordeal. He stayed fairly patient with Mommy while I figured out what I was doing along the way :)
And without further ado...the before and after pictures. And the piles of hair that was left on the floor/garbage can. We washed and dried him after the hair cut.

|Half the hair...|

|And the final product! Still a little wet from the bath :)|
So that was my adventure with dog grooming. Hopefully it gets easier/faster. Leave comments below if you have any questions or suggestions for next time!
