it’s nice cuddling with the dogs when they’ve been freshly bathed – their coats are very silky soft and they smell great!
I’m still not an expert at grooming the dogs by any means, but I think I’ve established that Lorenzo looks best with longer hair, and next time I groom Cachita, I want to groom her more like a Cocker Spaniel – long ears, short on the back and long underneath, including her legs. But by the time I got that idea, I had already trimmed too much and it was too late. I did manage to leave her two front legs longer than I normally cut them though…
it’s definitely lots of hard work – most people don’t realize how long it takes to groom just one dog, let alone three! And while I do both Javier and Lorenzo using only scissors, it’s actually Cachita that always takes the longest, even with electric clippers.
