One hair fiasco after another

I seriously don't know how much more I can take today. Let me tell you about my day.

I took Dante to his grooming appointment at 10am. Not one hour after returning home, I get a phone call from the groomers saying that Dante will not let them get anywhere near him. He is biting and snapping and they can't even get the muzzle on him. They ask me to come down and try and put the muzzle on because shirley he'll be fine once that happens. So i pack up Will and off we go. I get there, get the muzzle on him with no problem, stay until they figure he's good to go. I leave covered in hair to go back home. Another hour later the groomers call again and say they can't finish him and perhaps I should bring him back tomorrow. So I call Erynn to stay with Will and fix HIS bad haircut and head off to get Dante. I broke down in tears when i saw him, he was so panicked and looked terrible. I pay the $60 and head straight to the vet's office. Break down in there until the vet would see me so she could prescribe a sedative...for Dante, not me. So another $82 later and meds in hand i head home. After letting Dante calm down I decided I would take the scissors to him to fix his hair and help out the folks tomorrow. When will I ever learn?? Now he just looks like someone took scissors to him. This is what he looked like when I picked him up.....they got his body done but not his head or feet. He looks like the dog from Lady and the Tramp, only waaaay uglier!

And this is what he looks like after I took the scissors to him.
