Smile wanna help with our first stylized clip?

This is my boy who has lived his 5 years in a retriever cut. I'd like to give a more stylized clip, though! I'm a newbie and was wondering if you all would be willing to give me some advice. Here he is so you can envision what I'm working with:





I'd like to do some sort of clip (I don't know proper names) where his legs stay fuller and his body is shorter so that he might appear a little leaner. Would anyone be willing to help me decide where to draw the line between short body/long legs and to suggest what length blade/combs I should use to do it? Should I do bracelets or just the entire leg fuller?

I also am curious about how to blend. More specifically, do you clip to the point of there being a distinct line between the longer and shorter lengths and then just shear away the longer section, gradually, to blend with the short? Does that make sense?

Oh yeah- shears! I haven't bought any yet. I'd like one straight and one curved and I'd be willing to spend about $100 total. I have large hands for a woman and fat thumbs. With that in mind, any suggestions? The hundreds of choices out there boggle my mind!

As for ears and topknot, I want them to grow, grow, grow right now so I'd love suggestions about where to make his mane or topknot end.

THANKS!!!

I'm on my iPad and don't know how to attach photos (and photobucket is acting wonky) so here is a link to a photo of what I'm thinking I will attempt.

I should not be giving any advice as I am new to grooming too... but I love fluffyspoo's Vegas. Have you seen many photos of him? He is so manly looking you can really tell that he is a male poodle and I love that. I would go for a look like that with the dude. Vegas's ears are short, his nose is shaved and his tk is not huge, but he does have some. I love him.

I keep a file on poodle looks that I love. Here is one of him. I think he looks awesome .

As he slims down, then maybe go for a more fufu look. But I love that look. If I had gotten the male dog, that was what I had planned for him.

Are the legs on him what are referred to as bell bottoms?

I don't know. lol I should not be the one giving any advice. I just think that a manly dog like The Dude would look great in that manly cut and you could get him in that pretty fast. The great thing about poodle is that we have years and years to play and try differant looks. If we don't like it, don't worry it won't be around long.

Looks like german trim? Im not sure exactly-glasses missing- but thats a lot of brushing on the legs to maintain.
