Think Of The Most Pampered Pet You Know. It Doesn’t Come Anywhere Close To What These Dogs Get!

OK, people with money and a lot of free time on their hands have been known to go into all kinds of excesses and one permanent feature of these excesses over the centuries has been the excessive pampering of dogs. That much is known.

Yet, amazingly enough, centuries later these people still find ways to amaze us with the things they can do for their four-legged friends. What you are about to see are poodles, cocker spaniels, bichon frisés, bedlington terriers and komondors groomed to an extraordinary degree. As expert Jorge Bendersky puts it:

To achieve the perfect canine haircut, beauty must coexist with and be dictated by harmony.

Well, I’ll just let you judge this statement yourself. These extraordinary images appear in photographer Paul Nelson’s new book, Groomed.
