Due to travel, Peggy hasn’t had a professional grooming in quite a while, and her next appointment isn’t until the end of August.

We’ve got family coming for a visit—some of whom are kids who have never met her—and I’d like her to look sweet and approachable. Her face is quite grown out, so I figured I’d take advantage of the scruff and try something new. If it doesn’t go well, I can always shave it down.

I’d like to try something like this:

This groomer has a video (I’m not sure if this is the right one) where she fixes a teddy bear face. Of course, she makes it all look so easy!

Her commentary is so funny! And yeah, I am 100% not capable of doing this. :LOL: Peggy might just have to meet her guests as she currently looks.....which is an awful lot like Gmork from the Neverending Story.

Good one! I’m definitely not confident enough with shears to even attempt this. I wonder if I could just use a trimmer around her eyes to open them up a bit.
I hear you - seeing all that scissoring makes me a bigger fan of a clean face. (Her video on shaving a poodle's face is also very good, IMO.)

My husband just very gently suggested I might not be capable of this. :LOL: I really am a terrible groomer.
This made me laugh this morning. I am the worst groomer ever. I've been grooming Renn since covid and now with the higher prices I am actually forced too. I groomed him yesterday. I still have his tail to do and a better foot clean up. I've been in a funk so I am just shaving it all off and starting fresh. I think instead of grooming Peggys snout you can just let it go natural for a teddybear look for now. See how bad I am!

Renn looks so cute!
