…until you’ve groomed a Yorkie.
Amazingly, he still likes me.
Our Yorkie’s hair is just easier to deal with when it’s shorter. I cut it a few weeks ago with scissors, actually did a decent job. However, I didn’t feel like spending another half hour sitting on the floor trying not to cut my fingers off along with his hair. So today, I chose to use the clippers.
Shockingly, he didn’t flip out. He did a lot better than Sean did at age two. Really, there isn’t a lot of difference between grooming a Yorkie and cutting a two-year old’s hair. Both move around a lot. Both don’t like it at all. Both have the potential of biting you. The advantage of the two-year old is you can hand them a lollipop and turn on cartoons to keep them happy, and you don’t have to shave their backside (at least, I hope not!) However, you can tether a Yorkie down and swat his nose if he’s naughty. Sure, you can do both to the two-year old as well, but people frown upon that. I don’t recommend it.
After getting groomed and bathed and blown dry, the Yorkie did what he needed to do – flip around on the carpet one hundred times to take the shine off his newly washed fur. Then he found a lap and went to sleep. It’s a rough life for the Yorkie. I know I feel badly for him.
