Still INSANELY busy in grooming land. Very happy, and very tired. I needed to get this one down so I didn't forget it. You may wonder, after reading it, how I could ever forget it.
I've become immune to odd requests for haircuts. I just let them talk.. and talk, then I just do what I want (when I know better than they do what they want). I've learned not to try and talk them out of it. It's not worth it.
A client came in with her new puppy. He was adorable. I asked what type of haircut she was thinking about with him (yeah, I still ask).
She said: Well, I'm not quite sure, but I really like those dogs that have the Lion trim. You know the one where the head is really fluffy? But I want the rest shorter, so I can see the ticks.
I'm thinking like one of those Teddy Bear Trims, you know, kind of fluffy and cute? (I have no clue what a Teddy Bear Trim is.)
And, I really love how his face looks just like an Owl right now! That is so cute. I kind of want that too.
Nodding, smiling. (thinking about the 15 other dogs I have to groom today and hoping this can wrap up sometime within the hour)
Then came the part I listened to:
Well, you know more about these dogs than I do. I've never had a Shih Tzu before.
Ok, I think I'll just make him look really cute. Which is what I did, and she loved it!
He (apparently) looked exactly like an OwlTeddybearLion doodle.
I'm a pro, would you expect anything less??
