Getting Benny Ready for the Holidays

I wanted to get Ben groomed before Christmas so that he would smell and look nice. The first shot is is his "before" picture.

I've known for a long time that he was difficult to groom. When he was a puppy, I took him to a pet store for his first grooming session. He not only bit the groomer, he bit her assistant and then he bit me!

Janet muzzles him. Here we see him struggling against a nail trim.  And below we see his "after" picture.


  1. Ben cleans up good! He is a handsome rascal!

  2. Not everyone likes a bath. He looks very nice!

  3. he'll stay clean for a couple of days, at least. :)

  4. I think he need a red bow ... tie!

  5. He looks great! Our dog fights the groomer too.

  6. Oh you have a Benny, also. :) He's adorable. I can empathize with his struggles.
