First Haircut: Shih Tzu Grooming

So, my husband and I decided that we would our puppy her very first haircut–ourselves.

Twenty minutes later, however, she was not as overjoyed. I used Scardy Scissors. We weren’t sure which size guard to use, so we used a bigger one first, then really went for the kill with a shorter one.
