If you have a dog as a best friend, you already know that they like to groom themselves. However, when it comes to grooming, dogs usually tend to be somewhat, shall we say…free form. And sometimes even the best-intentioned dog is a bit well, stinky.
Kind of like this guy (or gal) below:
We’ve all seen that dog. Heck, we’ve all been that dog
And this is where pet groomer extraordinaire Yoriko Hamachiyo has come into her own. At her shop Yorikokoro, based on Honshu Island, Japan, Hamachiyo turns disheveled dogs into canine works of art. And adorable is the word here.
You can hardly get much cuter than this:
If you’re feeling ambitious, Hamachiyo can even groom your dog to match your garden:
What Yoriko likes to do most is to transform the bedraggled into the beautiful, Bored Panda notes. And sometimes she likes to accessorize the pooches too.
So a dog goes from the dregs to the dazzling:
And as far as accessories go, Hamachiyo uses bandannas…
…And even more bows
Sometimes doggos even get a touch of color
There’s not much information at how Hamachiyo fashions these doggie hairstyles, but they are cute and less weird-looking than a recent fashion trend in Japan: Dogs that looked rather, well, square.

And as for that decidedly not square perfectly round beach ball of fluff we mentioned above? Well, it turns out that her name is Sesame, and the little teacup poodle has gained quite a following, thanks to Hamachiyo’s Instagram photos, MailOnline reports. Groomed to look like a sheep, this little dog has charmed lots of people.
As you can see by the number of likes on her photos below.
Truly, this is one seriously adorable dog!
