Default Norman’s FIRST haircut!! Transformation (Photos)

Wow!!!!! My old fuff ball is gone, I came back to pick up a completely new dog!!!!! Who looks like a poodle!!!

Groomer said she’s in love with him and just had clients come in all day wanting to love on him! Makes my heart happy to know he’s loved and did so well!!!

My sweet pup! I love it , don’t get me wrong, but it’s such a difference and I’ll have to get use to it! So happy I bit the bullet and did it!

What do y’all think?? I’m sure my family will flip when they see him!! But no worries I LOVE IT!!!

Sorry for weird photo of him between my legs. His favorite thing to do is put his face between my thighs and hide when scared or to get scratches. Wanted to show off his new blonde coloring on his back!! LOL. Anyone else’s dog do this??

Oh what a gorgeous boy! Did he used to get mistaken for a doodle with all that cute fluff? No one will make THAT mistake again!! He looks very handsome.

People regularly look skeptical when I tell them Peggy is a standard poodle. They always say, "But mixed with something, right?"

Thank you both!! I have to get use to this shaved face, like I said. I love his teddy bear look but this look is handsome and just stunning! I had to double check I had the right dog!!

And yes people would mistake him for many things, one person thought he was a schnauzer?? I guess that was the cue it was time for a big-boy haircut!!

I think this haircut clears the air of him being a Poodle boy!!

Yes!! He is 100% poodle!

When I brought my last dog to the groomer for the first time, she went in looking like a mop and came out (I swear) looking like a cat. I laughed the entire way home.

Thanks Eric!! I truly appreciate it! Hes no longer a carpet of fluff! Some great members here on the forum suggested the German hair cut, great choice.

And yes his Poodle is shinning through finally! I also was laughing SO much! The groomer at first thought I hated it because I just couldn't stop laughing and saying "who's dog is this?" ha! But I love it, just SO different from what I am use to seeing!

It really changes our perception of their personality, doesn't it? I find that how a face is shaped can really change how we see and interact with our dogs, even when we know them so well.

Yes!!! This is not what I expected. Its like I need to re-bond with this "new" dog! I keep looking back at his old photos and his new photos and its so hard to see his personality with this new-do!
I truly can't wait to see how well he likes this haircut. He seems to be all smiles when I brought him home but maybe that's because I can actually see his face!!!

I know for a fact that my father will be so upset. He is not a fan of any "classic" poodle cut = aka SHAVED FACE! So this will be interesting to see how he interacts with Norman! They are normally good buddies (wrestling together) but I think this will really throw him off.

I think they really do like having a fresh haircut! They zip around with extra bounce, especially if they previously had any hidden little knots or mats around their bums, eyes, or armpits.

I'm sure your father will get over any feelings he has about Norman's haircut when they get back to playing their favorite games together.

And that hair will start growing back quickly!
