If there’s one thing that each and every dog owner has in common, it’s that they LOVE LOVE LOVE when their pups go to the groomer.

It’s like you’re getting a whole new dog back when you go to pick them up later that day!

They smell good, they get a nice haircut, and they look just perfect…for about an hour until they decide to go roll around in the mud in the backyard…and then it’s back to the same old smelly pooch.

But at least we can all enjoy those brief periods where they seem totally transformed. Enjoy these photos that dog owners shared of their best friends being totally made over at the groomer.

1. Believe it or not, it’s the same dog.

I’d call that a total transformation.

This is the same dog y’all 😭😭😠😠 my friend adopted her after she just showed up on her porch she had to have all her teeth removed she had a giant sore on her leg and under her tail and she was a giant matted mess. I groomed her and made her brand new babe feeling so fresh and clean

2. Still looks like a puppy to me!

15 and still going strong!

My sweet girl Cheech is 15 years old! After her haircuts everyone always thinks she’s a puppy

3. This definitely doesn’t look like the same dog.

Who are you, again?

4. Before and after.

You did a good thing!

We rescued a Maltese from a puppy mill in Georgia that got busted with over 700 dogs this weekend. After 3 hours of cutting matted hair and bathing, here is Luna’s before and after.

But it was definitely time for a haircut.

6. Shaggy to happy.

Wow! Looks like a whole new pooch!

From shaggy to happy! Total transformation. Not every pupper is beyond a miracle.

7. Now, you’re POSITIVE this is my dog?

Okay, if you say so…

My friend had to triple check with the groomer to make sure he was bringing home the right dog.

8. Too hot to have long hair.

Snuggles is now ready to go!

It’s 32°C degrees (90°F) outside, so my dog, One-eyed Snuggles, needed a groomer.

9. That’s what I call a makeover.

Nice to meet you!

My puppy Otis got his first haircut. I’m not sure they gave me back the same dog.

10. Your own buddy didn’t recognize you.

Well, that was rude!

Our 9 year old goldendoodle got her first grooming since quarantine. Our other dog barked at her when she came home

11. I love this description.

But I bet he’s not so innocent…

My boy, before and after going to the groomer… Went from dirty biker to innocent preacher’s kid.

Okay, you know the drill…

Now we want to hear from you!

In the comments, share some photos of the transformations of your own pooches.

We’d love to see ’em! Thanks in advance!
