Internet Can’t Stop Laughing After Groomer Gives Dog ‘Mohawk’ Hair Cut

Hair trends aren’t only for humans. Just ask this Afghan Hound, whose luscious locks are worthy of a celebrity stylist. Or this dog, whose at-home haircut went horribly wrong (on the plus side, mullets are making a comeback).

Well, one pooch’s trip to the groomers didn’t quite go as expected. u/Twisted_NaeNae shared a snap of her cousin’s dog Henry to Reddit’s r/aww forum, and users couldn’t get enough of the pup’s disgruntled expression.

They wrote: “(OC) Y’all. This is my cousin’s dog Henry, who was given a mohawk haircut from groomer. We have been laughing for 2 days.”

The post, which was shared on Tuesday 26 April (view it here), has received almost 42,000 upvotes and 12,000 comments in less than 24 hours.

Whole-enchilada said: “Henry is about done with your bulls***.”

While Jjconstantine commented: “Poor guy probably has no idea why everyone keeps laughing at him.”

Fergus74 pointed out that the patch of white fur on Henry’s neck “looks like a middle finger.”

With more people purchasing pets during the COVID-19 pandemic, the US pet products industry racked up a record $123.6 billion in sales in 2021, according to the American Pet Products Association, which said $50 billion was spent on pet food and treats, $34, 3 billion on veterinary care and products and $9.5 billion on other services, including grooming, dog walking and boarding.

How much it costs to groom your pet varies depending on your dog’s size, breed and behavior. Extra perks, such as picking a pet up for their appointment and dropping them off back home, also factor into the cost, as do additional treatments for pups in need of further pampering.

After his session at the groomers, Redditors couldn’t help but notice the resemblance between Henry’s new style and multiple celebrities.

Leicanthrope commented: “I’m seeing Tommy Chong, oddly enough.”

SugarBoogers said: “Like a young Abe Lincoln.”

Multiple Redditors reported a clear likeness to veteran Western actor Sam Elliott.

Lo-Fi_Pioneer wrote: “Someone PLEASE Photoshop has Sam Elliott worthy mustache on this regal hound!”

02overthrown said: “I was definitely getting “Sam Elliott in Gettysburg” vibes.”

1980s icon Mr T. was another popular choice, with Cru_Jones86 joking: “Just needs some gold chains.”

Many users saw a strong resemblance between Henry and actor Jonathan Banks, who plays corrupt private investigator Mike Ehrmantraut in breaking Bad and its spin-off Better Call Saul. So much so, that DiveCat proposed an all-dog remake of the crime drama.

They wrote: “Featuring Walter Whippet, who after a devastating cancer diagnosis, accompanies his brother in law, Hank Hound, on a drug bust and subsequently starts a lucrative, yet highly risky, path of making the notoriously potent drug that earns it’s own street name: Blue Milk (Bones).Also featuring Gus Frenchie, Jesse Pinscher, and Saul Goldendoodle.

“Yes, its a mouthful and could use some tweaking, but 110% would keep my Netflix subscription for this.”
