So tomorrow Zael will be going into the groomers, it's not his first visit or anything, but it'll be the day I (attempt to) suck up all my insecurities and go ahead with one of 3 options...

Ether Zael is leaving with the beginnings of a:

1. German clip
2. Modified HCC clip
3. Miami/Bikini clip

The German is my first choice as I personally really dig the strong manly look... Trouble is the more I look at Zael's tail, the more I worry about it. His tail is long, undocked, and it almost curls twice... kind of like a pigs tail. I hope he suits it shaved.

Second option is the Miami as I believe that's the easiest transition for him, the ground work is already laid out as he's in a kennel clip right now. Granted, he has quite short hair on his legs so his bracelets (or whatever you call them... pom-poms?) will be very underwhelming for a few months.

And lastly... I recently fell in love with the HCC. It's more of a fun option I'd say... I've been thinking over and over in my head "You have a poodle... why not go all in for a little while, fur grows back and mistakes can be learned from" but a lot of people, friends, family, and even strangers, have made it clear that they think all this "froofy poodle-y stuff" is stupid. It's kind of disheartening.

Ah well, wish me luck and I really hope I don't chicken out at the last second like I did last month... :afraid:

Good luck with your trip to the groomers tomorrow.
I really love the modified continental cut personally, and I am sure whatever you end up choosing will look handsome on your boy.

All good choices.

I love the German clip on males, elegant, classy and I see it as masculine. Great clip for an active dog.

Some one in the class after mine has a gorgeous spoo in a modified HHC. Stunning clip. Makes me want to put my dog back in this clip but she’s always hot so it’s not a good summer clip for us.

I have my dog in a Miami bikini and I have to tell you I get a million compliments and people asking me who grooms my dog. It seems to be such an iconic look.

Can’t wait to see what you choose.

THE DEED HAS BEEN DONE!

I'm so happy with how it turned out, I was terrified he was going to come out a patchwork mess or worse, scalped. But my groomer pulled through, she was very proud of her work and I have to agree she deserved to be. Very nice.

(I'm sorry about the photo quality, for some reason my phone didn't want to play ball today.)

He looks so smart and stylish and I can see his chest mismark clearly. Great choice
