Back in the homeland (Tucson) and I’m trying to get into a routine.
Yesterday I went into the office for most of the day…took a slightly early day to come home around 4:00pm. I tried to give my baby boy a much-needed haircut. We have special dog grooming clippers and Chris has become an EXPERT groomer. Not even joking, people have seen his work and offered to pay him money to do their dogs, too. Me on the other hand….not so much.
Well, Chris has been crazy-busy with work which is good & bad. It’s good because his business (he’s a small-business owner, as of this past January) is finally really taking off. Bad, because now he’s working 70+ hour weeks with no days off and things that used to be on the “Honey Do” List of chores are no longer getting accomplished. One of those things is Rocky’s hair cuts.
So yesterday afternoon I decided to take things into my own hands. Only…I F*ed up. Pretty badly
I used a guard that was much too short (like 1/8 of an inch instead of 1/2 an inch). When I realized my error I tried to swap out guards, but then while I was shaving the guard fell off and I got Rocky really good with no-guard until I realized what was happening and that I was shaving him down to the skin…
…if you are unfamiliar with what “guards” are and what all that mumbo-jumbo means, then just take a looksy at this picture.
THIS is where I was at when Chris came home and disrupted my progress…
I don’t even know what to say without laughing! He’s my baby boy so I love him regardless
He’s so silly because he LOVES hair cuts too. Something about the electric razor – I think it feels kind of like a massage for him.
Anyways, Chris saw what a whack-job number I’d done to Rocky’s coat and determined that I could not be trusted to fix it correctly (probably true!) So Rocky is going to have to look like he has mange until sometime over the weekend when the hubbs has time to fix it up….if that’s even possible given the different lengths of hair.
Chris joked that my “punishment” should be that I have to take Rocky to PetsMart and the dog park so I’m embarrassed by my actions
It’s okay, he just looks like he’s brindle. Right? Right? No? Whatevs.
Like I said – he’s my baby so he looks beautiful to me no matter what
Have you ever attempted to groom your own pet? Would you ever consider it?
Is everyone at your office on “summer schedule” too? Looking around at the empty offices and cubicles in my building its obvious that I’m not the only one dipping out a little early!!!
