Jazz is getting so big! I had to do a double take of him sniffing the groceries... It was just the other day it seems that Bonnie was the one on her hind legs.
I thought of Jazz a couple of days ago. A 4 month old black spoo pup came into my salon for a groom. OMG, it is VERY hard to photograph a black dog!! I had to do so many takes. And of course he didn't want to look at the camera. It was his first feet shave. He was so ticklish, he would kick his feet like a donkey out of nowhere! I almost got kicked in the face and almost stabbed myself with the scissors. Poodle puppies are so endearing though. He would run away when he thought I was trying to put him on the grooming table, but when I walked by and ignored him, he followed me wondering why I was ignoring him. I'm not even his owner, but if he could not see me or if the door was closed, he would cry and cry and cry. I sat in the salon while my husband walked out with Leroy, the puppy CRIED for my husband and Leroy. So needy!
Oh, I also thought of Jazz when I saw that puppy cause I asked about the pup's TK. It was really short. The owner said that they took the dog to a different groomer and asked for a teddy head. Well they buzzed off ALL the topknot and only left about 1-2 inches. You could definitely tell someone lopped it off. We are trying to grow that out!
I can't wait to see Jazz's actual height!

I am holding onto the concept that they get most of their height by 6 months. LOL He is 5 1/2 months old and just under 24 inches tall. I am thinking he will be 26 inches or so. Isn't that about Leroy's height? I also think he looks big because he has so much hair now.
I feel sorry for those people who had their puppies head chopped off. :(
Here is how he self stacks. His rear legs are so darned long and bendy (no chance of straight stiffles with this boy LOL). I have been trying to teach him to self stack with his hocks horizontal. Sometimes he does it, sometimes he doesn't. I am so lousy at judging how to stack him myself, I would prefer he learns to do it himself. Maybe I will post this in the show section to see if they have any tips for me.
