Thank you for honoring what your dog wanted. At every dog show, I see dogs who clearly don't want to be there, and yet get dragged around on a leash over and over. You did something too many people don't do, you stopped and listened to Zoe. Thank you for setting a good example. I wish you and your dog great joy ahead and I can't wait to see some more pictures.

Johanna, I loved meeting you this weekend and seeing the beautiful Zoe. I must say that I am just amazed by her absolutely beautiful clearing to blue. I honestly don’t know that I have seen a dog clear more beautifully. And I have seen a lot of blue poodles lol! Zoe is such a beauty and I know that she is going to absolutely love the dog sports that you put her in. I am also glad that you are listening to what she wants to do and putting her into a much more manageable trim. Though I must say that the English saddle looked wonderful on her - I don’t think I could keep up such a difficult trim myself.
I am going to put up the picture we got together here since it shows darling little Zoe. Again, it was such a pleasure to meet you. I wish I had more time to chat with you and watch the show, but you know how busy we were with all of those dogs haha. It was such a fun weekend. I also want to thank your poodle club for being the BEST specialty show hosts. I was so amazed by the hospitality (beautiful food table and all!!) I have been to several poodle specialties and never been to one with such amazing hospitality! It was so wonderful! Can’t wait to see updated pictures of Zoe!
PS the dog I am holding in this picture looks huge but its the camera angle. He is a black mini with a whole lot of hair.

He is just the right size - Zoe is quite small and has less coat, so that makes him look big by comparison.
Emily, I was so pleased to actually meet you. I hope to see you at another show one of these days.
I hope to work on Zoe's HCC trim today - it's going to take awhile for it to look good. She really needs rosettes, but I shaved them off because they would have really looked weird with a half circle cut out of them due to the English saddle pattern.
Zoe is signed up for the next level class in agility and also for a CGC class. She will enjoy those - and I think she already is pleased not to have to have her topknot done up every day!
"Oh yeah for Zoe" says my Tiki! His mom was a top show dog and yet he couldn't stand the hair do's and fuss. He wants to be nekid and run free sometimes! The rest of the time he is an awesome Service Dog.
