Doggie Haircuts Worth Every Penny!
While I find all dogs to be adorable, I prefer my own doggies to be small and long-hairedÃ¢â‚¬Â¦essentially, I like little poofballs.Poofballs are exactly what Pom Pom and Casper are.Ã‚Â Unfortunately, long hair comes with an added cost: haircuts. Since Pom and Casper donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have curly hair, we canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t just grab the shaver and shave off layers of hair on our own (although I doubt I would do that anyway even if they had curly hair).Ã‚Â These little dogs of mine require a haircut every other month, and these things donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t come cheap!Ã‚Â Back in San Diego, Pom PomÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s hair would cost us $50 every two months!Ã‚Â Now, weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve found private groomers who charge $35 for each dog, which seems like a great deal to me.Ã‚Â Still, we are investing $70 every other month (and $420 a year!) to keep our dogsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ hair off the ground, out of their way as theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re doing their business, and of course, to keep them looking cute.Ã‚Â
DonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t get me wrong, I love these haircuts.Ã‚Â One of the best things on Earth is when I pick the kids up from the groomers and smell their freshly cut and fragranced hair and feeling how soft they are. In all seriousness, long-haired doggies need to be regularly groomed to stay healthy Ã¢â‚¬â€œ you can just SEE how happy they feel when they get home!Ã‚Â So yeah, doggie haircuts are extravagant but necessary costs for us long-haired dog owners and lovers.Ã‚Â
