Beau was groomed a few days ago, and is now officially beginning his seasonal transition from a summer Miami to a winter lamb clip. Madeline clipped off his bracelets, but his leg hair and body still needs to fill in for a month or so. Right now I am missing the poms, big time. His legs look so skinny! Oh well, at least it's easy to take care of.

LEUllman: I FEEL YOUR PAIN ! I am a couple a weeks ahead of you on the loss of bracelets/pom-pom trail. I may have to move where the seasons don't change just so I don't have to sacrifice Chagall's bracelets when winter comes! I'm now trying to emulate liljaker's Sunny's lovely bell bottom legs, so in about two more grooms, and likely a few snowstorms, we'll be there. To me Beau looks as dashing as ever. But oh how I know what it feels like to see your beloved "lamb chop" turn into a "string bean" when the bracelets are sheared off!! If it's any comfort, the "new normal" starts to look right in a few days.

Wow, they both look great in their new clip. And both have beautiful full ears and tail! I want Lily to look like that after her groom! She doesn't have a very full tail or ears. I hope at some point they'll "fill in". I want to print out those pics and show my groomer that's what I want

Lexi is still in a Miami, but it is growing out. We haven't had any snow yet. Last year those fluffy bracelts where huge to keep up in the snow. She hasn't been clipped on her body for the last eight weeks. Last winter she was in a winter lamb cut also, but I still left a little poof where her bracelets would be. I have decided that this year she will have legs more in line with the length of her fur all over. I do know what you mean about missing the fluffy feet!
Beau and Chagall are the handsomest of minis no matter what style they wear.
Is the transition from miami to lamb is a bit like the rule about not wearing white after Labour Day?
Sisko has voted to keep his bracelets year round, it gives the neighbourhood folk so much pleasure to exclaim over them.
Off on a tangent here but coming home from Vancouver yesterday on the ferry a very nice man asked of our 58 lb / 26" + boy who was filling the back seat of the car - "Is that what you would call a toy poodle?"
