Another First for Stella the Schnoodle!!!!!

Did your Mom ever cut your hair as a kid?

Mine Did.

Or did you ever cut it yourself???

You can understand why Stella would be a little apprehensive about me cutting her hair.  In an effort to save a little $$$…Mama decided to give “Home Grooming” a try today.

Who Wants a Haircut?

Not me Mama! (Schnoodle shakes her head)

Im sure Papa doesnt want you to do this Mama.

So here we go.......

I felt a little like Edward Scissorhands (one of my favorite movies-See VodPod box to the right!)!  Since I didn’t have a proper table, Stella opted for laying down on the kitchen floor.  I spun her around….flipped her on her side….fed her treats and praise, praise, praised her!!!  I’m not even sure how long it took….all I know is that I was covered in Schnoodle hair…and Stella was not.

It doesnt look like much......

But it was.....ooooohhhhh...it was!

There was even some of her cute little white chest hair.

And maybe I went a little too short in some spots....and a little too long in others.

I think….given it was my first attempt….all turned out pretty well.  Tomorrow I’ll get Papa to help me while I trim up around her cute little face…and try to straighten out the hair on her legs and feet.  All in all Stella…..I think you turned out beautiful….it could have been worse.

A Camel?  Really?

Stella could rock this cut!!!!!

I’ll post more photos after I’ve got her all trimmed up tomorrow.

    Oh, I am not alone in grooming schnoodle Oma to save money! Her hair is so hard to cut and it never turns out well. I usually end up shaving her and she does not like it because I think she likes her cuddly hair. But you did much better!

  6. I’ll be attempting another home haircut on Stella this weekend…but shhhhhhh…don’t tell her!!!
