Sadie is 16 weeks and has had 4 shots. The vet cleared her for grooming. After we had already found our wonderful breeder we accidently stumbled onto a groomer that raises Maltese! Her entire wall is full of professional portraits of her 11 Maltese. Even though I have a good groomer for our Bichon I felt that it was really important to take Sadie to a groomer who knows Maltese and is accustomed to Maltese puppies. We had to drive a little ways but they were WONDERFUL. We went to lunch and they had her ready in a little more than an hour. They cooed and raved over her and promised that the next time I could call ahead and they would take her first so she'd be in and out quick. Jolie had a good start with groomers and goes just fine. I felt like it was important that Sadie have a good start too. These folks met and surpassed my hopes and expectations.
