Hugo’s Make-Over!

What’s a Lhasa Apso Yorki mix?  A YorkiApso!  That’s Hugo

Referring back to Brittney’s Love , Hugo is the chosen one…  I look at an object, child, person, animal, flower just about anything, and I not only see what it is right now, but also, what it can be. The enhanced beauty!

The Story of Hugo:

Hugo was dumped in an apartment complex parking lot with two other dogs. Hugo was taken in by two Good Samaritans. Hugo was said to have, a
filthy,  matted coat. The Good Samaritans gave him a quick “New Do” with a pair of scissors 🙂 Hey! It’s the thought that counts right?

Hello Hugo!

Upon meeting Hugo, his handsome character shined, but his curb appeal lacked a little to be desired! Unlike many, I held the ability to see past Hugo’s unsightly blemishes and envision his true potential! What Hugo lacked in looks, he definitely made up for in his loving personality and charming spirit.  Hugo enjoyed a long play date with my children. They like me were able to  look past his appearance, seeing the real Hugo from within.





With my mind racing with ideas, I went to work…



I may not be able to perform magic and give Hugo the shiny silky long coat he so deserves right now, although, he is well on his way with a nice daily diet of Andi Brown’s stew. I wanted results now, I didn’t want to wait! So I touched him up with some softer more blended hair lines 🙂

Happy Hugo!

But I still wasn’t satisfied….

I know he has the potential for so much more, he has a beautiful coat some where in there, and I wonder who else can see that?                                        Can anyone else see the Real Hugo? Knowing that some people will look at this picture still unable to see beyond the shaggy hair do.                               I have decided to go a step further and enhance Hugo to his true potential!

My vision of Hugo was long but not too long, shiny cream with hints of brown and black, silk like hair. The texture of a Lhasa-Apso with the length of a Yorkie!  But how was I going to turn his choppy edges into long lusterous flowing hair?

See for yourself! with some more soft focusing and a little tweaking of the lighting he is going to be a Handsome Lil’ Boy.
