"Penny gets groomed every 6-8 weeks. We found an amazing groomer who understands our love of the shaggy look. We found that her coat's getting curlier and curlier as it grows out, but I don't know if it's reflected in her pictures…"
"I recommend getting a high velocity vacuum. I'm a big believer. It not only dries Penny twice as fast, but it also helps blow out mats. Because the HV vac blows out cold air, you can press the nozzle close to the skin and blow out as many…"
"For my first groom, I took her to PetSmart over in Falls Church despite living closer to the Fairfax location. The reviews on yelp were muucchh better. I had a puppy pack coupon for $10. They bathed, trimmed her nails and around her face for around…"
