It's obvious she's been professionally groomed before as she loves for me to brush her and doesn't seem to mind having her feet touched or her ears cleaned, etc. However, she doesn't like having her tail touched at all.

So, I was relieved she did as well as she did.

One thing both the vet and Barb said though makes me want to get a dna test for her. Both said she looked a lot like a West Highland Terrier and not as much like a Maltese! Since she was groomed, she looks less like a Maltese but we still love her.
Glad Fiona did ok with the grooming. And we don't care what she is DNA wise - she belongs here. Grooming can make a dog look like a different breed. Back when I was learning to groom Tebow his face came out Westie looking. People had a hard time figuring out what he was until his hair grew out.
