7 Doggy Before-And-Afters That Will Make Your Heart Squirm

This is truly the cutest thing we've seen, like, ever. 😍

When your dog is the most important thing in your home, it’s crucial to keep him or her groomed in tip-top shape. For inspiration, take these dramatically cute photos from L.A.-based animal photographer Grace Chon.

Chon frequently chooses to highlight the Japanese style of dog grooming, which uses creative hairstyles to make pups look as cute as possible. 

“There is a lot of whimsy and creativity involved in making the dogs look almost like they’re stuffed animals,” Chon told HuffPost. 

We wouldn't argue with that:
