20 Embarrassed Pets Who Should Fire Their Groomers

Meme of a dog with a bad haircut


Time and time again, pets have proven themselves to be loyal companions who don't complain when we let it all hang out around the house. Our dogs and cats don't judge us for sleeping late, not washing our hair, or occasionally wearing the same pair of sweatpants for three days straight. They don't even mind if we dress them up in goofy outfits, just as long as it makes us happy. Animals truly are "the best people." 

And how do we repay them for their unyielding love and devotion? We take them to the grooming salon and let someone butcher their fur with a pair of sheers and a misguided sense of style, that's how. Don't get us wrong; most of the time when your dog or cat goes to the grooming salon they end up looking neat and trim, but sometimes that's not the case. Sometimes, they come out looking like somebody messed up ROYALLY. These poor, embarrassed pets. It's amazing they don't murder us in our beds while we sleep at night.

Don't Look at Me, I'm Hideous!

Jin Jin the Persian's owner took him to the salon to get his usual lion cut, but things didn't come out as planned. Either his groomer was having an off day, or somebody sneezed at just the wrong moment!

Not What They Had in Mind

Corgi heart butt fail

This pet owner brought in their Corgi with the image on the left and asked the groomer to give her dog a similar "heart butt." A few horrible snips later, this happened.

We'd probably be annoyed with the groomer, right after we stopped laughing!

Did He Do This Himself?

If it weren't for the fact that dogs don't have thumbs, we'd swear the dog himself is responsible for this hack-job bang trim! He looks like he just woke up from a three-day bender to find someone had "helped" uncover his eyes.

Why, though? This poor little fellow must be the laughing stock of the dog park.

Rocking the Punk 'Do

Something tells us that this isn't even his real hair, but that's somehow more impressive, in a way. Someone went to a great deal of effort to make this happen!

Whatever you do, don't feed him after midnight! Things don't end well if you do.

Elaborate, but Still Weird

This isn't even a fail; someone worked hard on this. Because sure, doesn't everyone want to look at their cat's rear end and see whatever this is?

Maybe this cat just got back from a Caribbean holiday where all the other tourists were getting braids. Blame it on the tropical drinks.

Last, but Not Least

Apparently, the square head haircut is a thing in Japan. Can we safely blame Minecraft for this trend? We're going to go ahead and say yes.
