An Easter Haircut

You've met this guy before, right? I don't suppose it's a surprise that I thought he might be due for a haircut. Aside from not being able to see his eyes, he has had an unsightly patch on his side. Last November, he had a large rectangular patch shaved down to the skin for an allergy test. It's bothered me more than it has ever bothered him. Meeko is pretty joyful no matter what. His hair (Wheaten terriers don't have fur) has been ever so slow growing in. I've had so many people over the past few months ask me if he had had surgery. When I've posted photos of him, I've tended to show his other side. So the patch finally grew in to the point that I thought I could get the rest of him groomed to match.

So this was Meeko yesterday morning.

And this is him yesterday afternoon. Groomed. Blow-dried. An Easter kerchief.

And a little yoga stretch to finish things off.


Did you know that I cried the first time I took him to the groomer? When I picked him up, I didn't even realize it was Meeko, he looked so different. A little over-attached to my pup? Ah, perhaps.

I love when his hair gets a bit longer and goes curly--all shaggy dog like. But others like him this way. When I took him for a walk yesterday, a little girl called out from her front door (in French): 'You're the cutest dog I've ever seen!' :)

    1. Thank you, Sonia and Gary. There were two cats at the groomers and Meeko was very curious and sweet with them. I think he and Gary could be true friends!

  3. Oh my goodness, what a difference! I can see why you cried when he first had it cut,(that would be me too) but that patch did look odd. It looks like he's rather enjoying his smart new look, I do hope the weather is kind to him? It is absolutely freezing here still, although you may know 'absolutely freezing' more than I do? I have to admit to liking his curly locks the best, but just now, he looks like a teddy bear, I bet he is soft to touch? Lovely Pooch :)

    1. You are so right. That undercoat is very soft and lovely to touch and a little darker so he looks quite different. I moistened his coat today so it curled up more naturally--for my benefit (as Emma said). Yes, for me. Of course, Meeko doesn't worry about what he looks like. Smart fellow.

      Weather-wise, it is warming up here. I hope for the same for you.
