    Bingo (Shihtzu x Chihuahua) is 14 weeks old and this morning, he had his first hair cut - the young lady that groomed him said he was exceptionally well behaved, there's a first LOL

    So here's Bingo BEFORE

    and AFTER

    it's everso slightly shorter than I would have liked but there really is no point getting a "groom" that you're going to have to do again in a week's time, this cut should last him 6-8 weeks.

    he's so cute and fluffy now, he smells gorgeous and his nails are trimmed beautifully, wonder if she does humans???

    Bingo reminds me so much of my childhood dog, Max. He was a Chihuahua x Brussels Griffon. Max was blonde-brown colour with a dark brown 'moustache', but their eyes and faces are almost identical.

    This has cheered me up to see :thumbup1:

    Bingo is gorgeous, beautiful little dog. I have to admit to liking his first picture but I know you can't keep them at that length. I have a Bichon and I loved her when her puppy coat was quite long but now she's had a few cuts I prefer it shorter and it doesn't take so long to brush every day. Not sure whether I want her to get her adult coat, I prefer the fluffy look to the curly one!

    yes Bingo's defintaley an I-WANT-ONE-OF-THOSE dogs!!

    When he was trimmed the groomer explained she'd taken him a bit short because his hair will grow really quickly, well 4 days after his groom and he's already very fluffy again, is this normal??

    I'm amazed how fast it's all coming back but his face still looks smashing and we can still gaze into his eyes ;)
