I have been visiting Scottie Dog News for a long time and I love it!! Anyway, my reason for e-mailing? Scottie Grooming disasters! I have two cheeky Scotties myself; MacGregor (The boy) and Dixie (The girl). We have been to four different groomers this year all of which have ended in disaster. The first was an entire shave down except for eyebrows and beard, the second they came back with no eyebrows or beard and the third was an entire skirt shaving, badly clipped sides, trimmed legs and a completely shaved tail! We love our Scotties with the classic cut but we can’t find anyone who can take it easy with the razor. We always tell them “Long beard, long skirt, long brows, carrot tail, and a tuft in front of the ears” and they always come back looking like a Schnauzer! Not only that but this last cut has left our Gregor Traumatized! He refuses to get up from the sofa or blankets for fear of exposing his naked belly. I feel sorry for him and he probably hates me. I was just thinking that it might make me a little happier to hear everyone else’s disaster stories and maybe hear tips that others have for getting the right cut…and maybe find out how long it takes before they will look like normal again.
Sounds like a good idea to me. Bridget hasn’t really had any disasters so to speak. But she has had a few bad hair days thanks to less-than-ideal grooming.
The most notable was when I wanted to keep her shaggy for the winter and asked the groomer just to trim her around the eyes and any problem spots. He trimmed her all over, leaving her with about an inch of fluff all over. Luckily, it grew out fast.
I heard about this issue of Vogue too late to pick it up on the newsstand last autumn. Luckily, an alert reader spotted this and sent the link. Whatever would the Scottie News do without our network of citizen journalists?
My wife and I rescued Molly and Gus from the same litter just over 2 years ago. Molly received a diagnosis of bladder cancer this past summer, which is one of the most common Scottie diseases. Molly and Gus were inseparable. Sadly, the cancer took Molly last Thursday. Her Scottish spirit is represented in this photo where she models a Roberto Coin Tiny Treasure necklace that raised $600 for Scottie Rescue in the Scottish Terrier Club of New England. My wife and I miss her, but we feel privileged to have the two years she lived with us. David & Vreni
