It’s Time to be Groomed!

June 24, 2020

.

We have a grooming appointment again next week because Mummy said that we are looking SHAGGY again, and this time I have to agree with her.  Every time she combs my hair it seems that there a thousand tangles and I have no idea how they are getting there!  Mummy says it’s because my hair has gotten WAY TOO LONG and maybe I need to be cut down a bit like she has my sisters’ hair done.  Hmmmmm… she has always kept my hair LONG but now she is thinking that she might cut me a TINY BIT SHORTER because I am getting REALLY BAD about letting her comb me out as I get older.  She has ONE MORE WEEK to think about it.  How do you have YOUR yorkies cut?  Do you shave them short?  Or keep their hair longer?  I am the only one in my family that Mummy lets keep the longer hair… everyone else has a shaved-down cut.

Hi Millie. Spike here. My mom likes me “fuzzy “ but when it gets to a certain point, she shaves it all off. That’s ok with me. Whatever makes her happy.

Mummy has always kept my hair on the longer side, but she said as I get older it is getting too hard to comb me out because I won’t sit still… so this time she is going to trim me just a wee bit shorter… but not shaved as close as my sisters.

; but am sure you like your hair long; but, I think you would be stunning with shorter hair. My new little puppy, Grace Kelly has tangles in her hair too.

My hair is sooooo silky fine and tangles so easily, but Mummy just loves how soft it is. She said she will trim it just a little shorter and see how she likes it.

Millie, Jazzy 15 and Rambo 14 no longer enjoy topknots nor brushing. They are kept short for their comfort.

It’s so hot here in the summer I cut Chloe Ann very short. I did like her face a little longer during quarantine but short is cute too

Our Sophie just turned 14. The hair on her back is about an inch and 1 /2 long..I keep a bit of skirt on her and leg hair sort of long. Shes not a fan of combing. So mommy cuts the tangles out if need be. If she gets real bad I cut her leg hair shorter.

Ohhhh she looks perfect!!! This is a great length! Mummy had to cut a few mats out of my hair last night and she said I really need my hair cut a little bit shorter.

Millie – I think you will love having a short ‘puppy cut’ like my Darla always got. It made her feel so good and extra frisky. I look forward to seeing the pics of you and your sisters. <3

I used to get puppy cuts a long time ago and then Mummy started letting my hair grow longer… but I think it’s time to go back to the puppy cut!!!

Hi Millie, this is Sorcha! My mom lets my hair get a little long, but no top knot or anything. I don’t sit still either when my mom tries to brush me, but I’m still a puppy. My hair gets tangles too so I don’t like to be brushed.

I used to be really good about getting brushed out… but not any longer! Mummy thinks it’s time for a shorter haircut.

In Indiana Mumsie kept me long, but in FtMyers we keep me short because it is way too hot to wear long hair. I like not getting snags and tangles out daily-i keep a ponytail or pigtails and a long tail still. We tip my ears.

Hi Millie I’m having the same issue with my little girl and this Summer weather causing more tangles. We are trying a new finishing spray while brushing. Whatever you decide you will look gorgeous!

Mummy thinks it will be best if she trims my legs down a little and my back down to about 3” long.

Well Isabella I keep short BUT that is mostly because when she squats to pee she SITS IN IT! ewwwwwwwwwww!!! So I have to use baby wipes for doggies to wipe her off. I kept Tootsie long but she had very fine hair and I kept Emily short because she looked like a puppy when she was kept short. I think it’s something you decide by knowing your pet, your pets comfort, and your personal preference besides it always grows back!

Greta can not stand it when she gets tangles. She likes being brushed, but can’t stand it when I try to comb out the tangles. We keep her face in a puppy cut, but keep her body hair shorter.

I DO NOT HAVE ANY FUR OR HAIR. BUT I DO HAVE A SHELL THAT NEEDS TO BE CLEANED. SO, MY MISTRESS LETS ME SOAK IN MY BUBBLE BATH OF WATER AND BABY SHAMPOO. I LOVE BUBBLE BATHS AND IT IS AN EASY WAY TO GET CLEAN.

Trixie has a short skirt that doesn’t drag the ground and she is layered on top. She has silky hair too but still loves to be brushed, at least as of today. We know she can change her mind with the wind.

I never had the pleasure of personally having a Yorkie but 2 different Maltese have shared ownership of me. I kept the first girl in a long, long, show cut and I did all the grooming myself. Required daily brushing. By the time the second one came into my life, I was over the continual grooming and she got and kept a puppy cut.

We have Dee Dees cut quite short all the time. She has a top knot with a bow, but otherwise quite short, so it doesn’t tangle under her harness. She still looks very jaunty when she is walking!

We keep little Trixie shaved short. She’s a redneck Yorkie! She likes to go outside and explore and gets grass and burrs. Long hair makes it more difficult to get them out. You are beautiful no matter how long your hair is!

All my other kids were shaved down because it was easier and two had cottony coats. My two “Hooligans” Tucker and Maddie are a little longer, not to the floor though. They have very silky fur and while they don’t like to be brushed, the silky fur is easy to manage for all of us. You will still be adorable no matter what Mummy decides.

I shave Mercedes because she has thick hair and gets so hot. I tried letting it grow out last winter. The comb would not go through it.
I leave Benz long because his hair is very thin and I can comb it out often. He hates it though.

good morning Millie. My Mama has 2 of us my sister Bailey just looks good with her hair cut very short and as for me my coat is a little different so Mama shaves me and gives me that fluffy look on the face and I like it. Your Mama knows best and as always you will be adorable looking.

Cri cket Hassebrock here Millie – My Mom had me grow my hair long until I was about 6 and then she began taking me to Cheryl, my lifetime groomer, for what I call EXTREME cuts. I go twice a year – in spring and fall. I do retain My ponytail because mom likes to do my hair every morning when she washes my face and brushes my teeth. My mom said the shorter cut is cute and that it makes me look younger. I guess I’m okay with it because I am not much for long brushing sessions. Bye… Read more »

What a cute pic!!! Well, I think your hair is beautiful but I also know that your skin gets a little more tender as we age. Mine sure does! So, sweet angel Millie, mummy just wants you to be comfortable and happy and so a little less tangles might just be the ticket. I am not for a full shave because I think the sun can damage your skin too, but a little shorter like your sisters might just be what the groomer orders. Hugs, sweet little cutie.

Pickles gets a puppy cut most of the year and for the winter we let it grow a bit to keep her warmer during our cold Minnesota winters.

Well Conner a Yorkie boy, is short on the body with a little longer on the legs and face. Chloe, a Morkie, has gorgeous long hair which she and I are proud of. However, she is going to have both knees done next Tuesday (Prayers Please) and I’m wondering if I shouldn’t cut her hair a little bit because I’m sure they won’t comb or brush her while she is in the hospital for two weeks.

Hi Millie! Lucy, here! My Mommy keeps Maggie and me short because it’s been SO hot here in Fairfield! My little sister hates to be brushed, so short hair works for us! I like being brushed!

Hi Millie,
I like to keep Beau’s hair longer but Zoey’s is kind of a puppy cut. Zoey has a bow for about an hour but then she rips it out and tears it up. She is very proud of herself too. I just don’t know why she does this. My previous Yorkie Mitzi was a diva and had long hair which we kept brushed with bows I. She liked bows and being pampered.

Have you thought of doing longer around your pretty face, but shorter on the body? That might be the best of both worlds.

Although I’m a Maltese and not a Yorkie, my Mom is keeping my hair short now. I’m 15 1/2 and don’t like to be groomed so much anymore. Mom used to keep my coat much longer, but we now agree that I’m happier with a shorter coat. Mom says I still look cute.

Hi Millie and Clan
Oliver is having his spa day next week. I shaved him down for the summer because he loves chasing seagulls on the beach at our house.
Sounds like mommy has plans for her little cherubs.

Hi pretty girl…. I keep Miss Trixie mostly in a puppy cut ( I think that is what they call it). I do let it grow out a bit in the winter and keep it shorter in the summer. I don’t let them go way to short, or a buzz because I am afraid she might get a sun burn! But I enjoy combing out her hair. Give hugs to everyone for us! Have a wonderful evening be safe! <3

Mommy keeps me in a long show coat cliff. During 2.5 months that my groomer was closed Mommy continued daily brushing, changing my bow and giving good girl treats and washing my girly parts and used a dry shampoo every few weeks. My hair on my ears were a little wild and I was almost able to pick up radio stations!!!. Every 3 weeks back to a standing grooming appointment in my show coat.

Hi Millie, My mommy likes to keep me and my sister’s hair cut shorter, she calls it a puppy cut. We have our hair appt with the groomer on July 11th, I think. Mommy said we are getting so shaggy looking too. I think you look beautiful Millie whatever hair style you wear. Good luck at the groomers, loves Ariel
