I’ve finally done it! I cut Jasper’s hair for the third time and I’ve actually made it look good! He looks like a super adorable poodle, instead of an abandoned dog we found in a bush. I’m so excited! The first two times I was worried I’d have to take him to a groomer for a tidy up, but now I officially think I can do this so we’re gonna save lots of pennies!

He may look all sweet and innocent, but he’d just spent 15 minutes disobeying everything I said, and very nearly didn’t get his blog debut! Then I realised he wasn’t really doing anything wrong; he hadn’t been out for a proper walk yet, he’d just spent two hours at the groomers and then been freed from his lead in a big open space…of course he wasn’t going to sit and smile at the camera!
I really must start keeping treats in my pocket at all times! Although, I don’t think treats could even keep him away from a flirtatious chihuahua in heat! Thankfully his love for making new human friends meant we could grab him and pop him back on the lead before we had some Chi-Poo’s on our hands.
Once the coast was clear of cheeky Chihuahuas and speedy Spaniels we had another go at the photo shoot and this time it was much more successful *Insert heart eyes emoji here* Isn’t he adorable?!
So the moral of the story is never work with children or animals. Haha, just kidding. Just don’t expect them to sit and smile for a photo if they need to burn off some energy first!
