What’s the worst that might happen? It should only take a couple of snips here and there.
That’s what one well-intentioned dog mom allegedly reasoned when she trimmed her dog’s excessive hair at home.
You’ll see how that happened.
Susana Soares was hanging out with her dog, Mano, the other week when she saw his hair had grown out. Mano had not really gone to the groomers in a long, and his shag was getting a little out of hand.
Soares told The Dodo, “Hair was getting in his eyes.”
It didn’t sit well with Mano.
Soares, who has worked as a human hairstylist, assumed that taming Mano’s wild mane would be a problem.
She explained, “I decided to cut his hair at home.”
So Soares grabbed some scissors and started to work — and here’s what he came up with:
Sure enough, Soares had resolved Mano’s hair-in-the-eyes problem.
She gave him bangs, which unintentionally gave Mano a shady natural haircut.
It was almost as if the small dog had cut his own bangs. Without the use of a mirror.
Mano didn’t even have to ask Soares how he liked his new ‘do.
She said, “I fell on the floor laughing.”
Did you think the cut looked ridiculous? Yes, without a question. Mano, on the other hand, is not vain. After all, he could see properly again.
Soares stated, “He likes it.”
Fortunately, Mano’s hairstyle appears less ridiculous when tussled. If only in a little way.
Regardless of how things came up, Soares had the greatest of intentions, and that’s what matters.
Haircuts that aren’t so great come and go. Mano’s bangs will, luckily, grow back into a more natural look over time.
Soares intends to keep her scissors in the drawer and leave the cutting to the professionals when the time comes.
“I’m not going to say that again!” she said.
