We could see that Stella needed a professional grooming after we adopted her, so we brought her in to a place that was recommended to us by a local friend.
The diagnosis was that her hair was getting unruly, and she also had a lot of eye discharge being part Maltese which we could not clean off her face easily as it had dried and hardened.
The groomer was very friendly and casual- the shop was clean and busy. The total time waiting wasn’t more than an hour. They cut her hair a little too short, but that was our fault for not being clear about what we wanted. They shaved her behind and cleaned up her face.
The little one came out emotionally unscathed wearing a colorful little bandana. It was cute, and the result was great. We tipped generously.
