I don’t care whether you are a dog person or not – I’m just sure as heck there’s a huge chance you will find the photos below to be absolutely adorable.

Grace Chon, an animal photographer, recently launched a new photo series she entitled “Hairy.” We encountered her work on a BoredPanda blog post and frankly, we couldn’t help but give it lots of love.

Grace shared with the site about what inspired her to start the project.

She said:

“I’ve always found before and after photos from dog grooming to be really funny. Usually it doesn’t even look like it’s the same dog in each photo!”

She also added:

“I had the idea of shooting a photo series that highlighted this extreme transformation. Each dog went way beyond their normal grooming schedule to grow their hair long and shaggy for the shoot. There’s something so funny to me about seeing a dog so shaggy that they can’t even see!”

So with the help of professional dog groomers from Losa Angeles, California’s Healthy Spot, Grace went to work.

The photographer further mentioned:

“I wanted the after photos to be really extreme by showing a type of cut that’s uncommon to most of us here in the United States.

“All the dogs have been groomed in a Japanese grooming style, which doesn’t follow the usual breed standard cuts and rules for grooming that we’re used to seeing…

“These cuts are works of art – each haircut takes hours as the majority of the styling is all done with hand scissoring. All the dogs in the series were groomed by the incredibly talented groomers from Healthy Spot in Los Angeles, CA. Many of the groomers there specialize in this style of cut and have been trained by masters from Japan.”
