Getting my hair did

The groomer says Lo-Ro needs improvement.

The groomer says Lo-Ro needs improvement.

Lorenzo successfully made it through his first grooming with mixed reviews. The groomer said he gave lots of kisses but he did not appreciate getting his hair cut. The “day of beauty” was something entirely new to Lorenzo Romar. Most of the dogs that were rescued from the Snohomish puppy mill were filthy with feces and urine matted coats.

It is especially important for dogs like Yorkie’s to be groomed on a regular basis. Their hair can easily become tangled and matted if ignored. Certainly, this was the case when Lorenzo first arrived to humane society by way of the puppy mill. Not only does matting create havoc for a groomer, but for the pet as well. Mats put tension on the skin of animal, resulting in skin abrasions and a world of pain. Brushing Lorenzo has become a daily routine for us, as he adjusts to living in a new environment.

    Lorenzo is adorable! Yes, constant attention must be paid to a Yorkie’s coat. I am so sorry he was neglected for so long, poor baby. Now he will get the attention and love he deserves! 🙂
