Default Ending Conformation

After today's show I am going to put Zoe in a utility clip. She really does not like conformation because she hates to have a stranger touch her. So now she will get to enjoy agility and obedience, both of which she loves, without the burden of a long coat.


Here are some pictures of her swan song conformation show.

Aww I know this makes you sad, but it is such a nice testament to you as a poodle devotee that you listened to and respected Zoe's feelings. I have seen more people than I ever imagined I would trying to make their dogs qualify in sports that made the dog miserable.


Zoe is lovely. I am sorry judges weren't getting her vibe and virtues the way you had hoped.

Beautiful girl! I can’t imagine keeping that coat up but it is gorgeous.
I look forward to seeing her in agility and obedience.

Conformation is tough. I believe Otter could have been shown,but there was NO WAY I could have done that coat while working full time. It is hard enough to0 keep up with the tk and ears! Then there is..his breeder has a gorgeous white girl who got her majors quickly and has suddenly decided the ring is FUN! PLAYTIME!.. I call her WildChild ; Marlene is in no hurry, Glitter is young (just over a yr,I think) so She will get there eventually!

Zoe is so pretty and I am sure she will be more comfortable for the summer without all that coat! Since I am a lover of fluff, I'm hoping she will still have a pretty banded TK and fluffy bracelets....... or even a 'Miami' LOL!!!! Have fun with Zoe in her new venues!

Some dogs seem to love the ring, but if your stunning girl doesn’t, it’s a kind, unselfish move to retire. Her fine breeding will prove in other areas.

Thank you for all the positive comments. There's no going back now - I just trimmed her topknot and shaved her hindquarters. I'm working toward an HCC clip, but I want rosettes and those will take awhile to grow out. I know she will like not having her topknot and ears banded!


We are presently taking a break and will resume scissoring tomorrow. Once she is fairly presentable I'll post a photo of the new do.

Zoe is so beautiful - and she will continue to be beautiful whether she is shown in conformation or not. You will love the easier upkeep and I bet she will too.
