Nutmeg's First Grooming

Here is Nutmeg before her first grooming.  This was an indoor shot.  



And here she is after. She is super-fluffed due to the blow-drying, but it has settled down into ringlets.  This was her professional grooming right before Christmas.  

 

A couple of weeks later, I redid everything -- it was way easier than I thought.  I recommend, if you are new to dog grooming, to get it done the first time by someone who has a clue, and then start doing touch-ups right away, while you can still see the lines of the first trimmings.
