Dogs Before And After Their Haircuts (16 Pics)

I am an animal photographer named Grace Chon and these images are from my new photo series titled HAIRY.

I’ve always found before and after photos from dog grooming to be really funny. Usually it doesn’t even look like it’s the same dog in each photo! I had the idea of shooting a photo series that highlighted this extreme transformation. Each dog went way beyond their normal grooming schedule to grow their hair long and shaggy for the shoot. There’s something so funny to me about seeing a dog so shaggy that they can’t even see! I wanted the after photos to be really extreme by showing a type of cut that’s uncommon to most of us here in the United States.

All the dogs have been groomed in a Japanese grooming style, which doesn’t follow the usual breed standard cuts and rules for grooming that we’re used to seeing. Rather, the emphasis is on making the dog look as adorable as possible – cute on steroids- by highlighting the uniquely cute characteristics of the dog. These cuts are works of art – each haircut takes hours as the majority of the styling is all done with hand scissoring. All the dogs in the series were groomed by the incredibly talented groomers from Healthy Spot in Los Angeles, CA. Many of the groomers there specialize in this style of cut and have been trained by masters from Japan. Hope you enjoy!

Cheetahs Are So Shy That Zoos Give Them Their Own Emotional Support Dogs

While cheetahs might look like majestic and dangerous beasts, actually, they are very nervous beings. They get so anxious, they don’t know how to socialize with each other and get too stressed to have sex. That’s why they needed help as they’re becoming extinct – and the solution came in the most unexpected form…

Seeing that cheetahs need some assistance, for years now zoo keepers have been assigning these animals their very own… emotional support dogs. “It’s a love story of one species helping another species survive,” said Jack Grisham, vice president of animal collections at the St. Louis Zoo and species survival plan coordinator for cheetahs in North America.

“A dominant dog is very helpful because cheetahs are quite shy instinctively, and you can’t breed that out of them,” explains Janet Rose-Hinostroza, animal training supervisor at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. “When you pair them [cheetahs with dogs], the cheetah looks to the dog for cues and learns to model their behavior. It’s about getting them to read that calm, happy-go-lucky vibe from the dog” – and that helps them be more confident and willing to get it on.

That’s right, cheetahs, learn from the doggies and procreate!

Cat Becomes Nurse At Vets Clinic, Calms Scared Dogs

Meet Ron, the kitten who has the special power to calm the patients at the vet clinic. The feline was rescued as a stray from the streets of Colorado. When he first got to Northfield Veterinary Hospital he was so scared, the kitty was hiding all the time. However, soon he got accustomed to his temporary home and started interacting with other animals who came into the hospital, as if to let them know it was okay and they needn’t be worried.

“He would approach any other dog and cat without fear, and would try to climb into their cages…,” Shelly Sandel, veterinarian and co-owner of Northfield Veterinary Hospital, told The Dodo.

“He started to cuddle up to any pet who was under anesthesia for dental work (not sterile procedures) and provide them with body heat,” Sandel said. “He would even groom them while they were asleep, seemingly trying to provide them with comfort.”

The kitty spent three months at the clinic, acting as if he was an employee, making rounds to see the patients. However, soon it was time for him to go to a loving forever home.

“He lives with a family who has a young child and an older dog, and needless to say, they all love Ron,” Sandel said.

10+ Pics That Prove Dogs Are Better Than A Pillow

What could be cuter than kids taking a sweet nap? But of course, children taking a nap with their doggies!

As long as it’s supervised by adults, having dogs around babies and toddlers can be good for the kids. For instance, a recent survey made in Finland and published in the Pediatrics journal discovered that babies with dogs are less likely to develop colds or ear infections as infants than the newborns with no canine companions. However, they need to be exposed to dogs from a very early age for this to happen.

The survey also showed that babies with dogs that spend some time outside have a stronger immunity: “It might have something to do with dirt brought inside by the dogs, especially since the strongest protective effect was seen with children living in houses where dogs spent a lot of time outside,” said Dr. Eija Bergroth, a pediatrician at Kuopio University Hospital in Finland.

However, do remember that this is only a single survey, and adult supervision and right judgement is needed to make the best decision whether having a dog around is good for your child.

Owner Suprised When His 2 White Dogs Deliver BLACK Puppies, And Now Everyone Demands A Pupternity Test

Jacqueline Arguello’s two white-furred dogs just had the most beautiful BLACK puppies [alert: awkward], raising the question whether the mom dog was faithful. “When I saw her first baby be born, I thought it was funny that [the baby] was black,” Texas-based Arguello told BuzzFeed. “And then the next one was black, and the next, and the next!” she recalled.

As far as Arguello knew, her poodle was the first dog her female canine Mocca had contact with. However, the color of the puppies lead to Arguello’s family speculating whether Mocca secretly sneaked out and bred with some other canine.

Of course,  this can be the simple case of genetics – sometimes two white canines can produce black puppies if they both carry the dominant “black” gene. A color from generations ago can pop up in any puppy.

Still, Arguello’s joke made for a good laugh. “I’m just happy we have beautiful healthy pups and eventually we’ll see if they look like daddy,” she said, giggling.

Fashion Photographer Helps Abandoned Dogs Find Forever Homes

Fashion and portrait photographer Richard Phibbs believes photographs can change, inspire, and motivate.

The best of his photographs are featured in a new publication, “Rescue Me” (Aperture, 2016), along with the story of each dog on its journey from often shocking circumstances of abandonment and rejection, through rescue and the joy experienced in the new homes these pictures helped them find.
