Worst pet parents

We are the worst pet parents ever. We have a sheltie which means he has long hair and needs to be brushed regularly. We've had him for three years and have been doing the vast majority of his grooming on our own but honestly, once Owen came along we have not been as good. Consequently his fur has gotten matted in places and we were not able to brush it out. So Brian made an appointment to take him to the groomer. The groomer told him that he would not be able to brush him out either, so we really didn't have much of an option. So here's our new dog:




For reference, here's Milo before:

P.S...I do, however, love the tuft of hair at the end of his tail!!

This is WAY better than my bf's English Sheepdog had it! His dad didn't even bother with the groomer - just shaved him down except for his head which stayed all big and puffy.

Aww poor Milo. He's so skinny without all that fur!
