Most everybody who makes shears is making them now, they've become very popular. My pair is made by a woman who comes to our shop, she doesn't sell online. So I can't really recommend a brand.

As far as cordless clippers, I love my Bravura. Light, powerful enough for most coats and amazing for fft trimming. I've heard Arcos are good as well.

PS Nola, Like you say, I realize I shouldn't post pictures of jazz looking less than perfect, but I do. Ah, well.[/QUOTE]

Uh oh...I do this all the time..lol

They are dogs and they look great when we spend hours on them, grooming them but on a day to day basis they look anywhere from gorgeous, cute, to silly and downright dirty! We all know show does only look like that when they are not being dogs <grin> I love the candid pictures too.

Well, decided to go ahead and take him to the San Bernardino show to see how he reacts. We're going Sunday. His half sister is very close to a champion and I want to watch her.

Oh have fun and take some photos!! Will be great for him to get a chance to hear the sounds, smell the odors and just be around the energy of the show.

I would take pictures, but don't want to post anybody else's dogs. It will be a deciding moment for him. He will be evaluated for temperament and for conformation (one reason we are going). On Tuesday the 29th he'll either get a pet trim or a show trim. I am okay with either result.

Thanks. He'll have a good day whatever happens- he'll be out and about with his people. There are a number of people who are going to check him out. They should be able to come to some consensus. It is a lot riding on the day, I suppose. It is possible the consensus may be to wait a while longer. He should not be shrinking from strangers at his age, but he is doing much better with that, so we'll see. A comment was made that since he has apricot and red in one line that he will be slower to mentally mature. He isn't lifting his leg yet, for example. He's great at strutting around and showing off for me. I get to enjoy that no matter what!

My thoughts exactly...7 months is still very young, I wouldn't base my decision of wether or not to show off of one day, especially since it will be his first experience at a show and could throw him for a loop. Honestly his temperament sounds quite normal, not all poodles are the kind that welcome strangers with open arms. Trev isn't that way...he is polite, but he rarely runs up to people he doesn't know and he doesn't like to be touched by strangers either. I know several poodles who are that way.
