I love the original human, and her namesake sure is adorable! May your puppy live up to the name:)

I have been a Dolly fan since 3rd grade! It seemed like a great name for a poodle :)

Washed and dryed. As Dolly Parton would say---The higher the hair, the closer to God :) I am going to wait until her first professional grooming for her fft, but these feet are killing me! It will be another month at least bc of vaccinations.

Why didn’t the breeder do her feet also? She is adorable, but I need to see those cute toes!!

I am so new to poodles I should have asked. They had face and tail done 3 times but no feet. I am considering doing it myself but i dont want to scare her. She did not like it when I used the blow dryer on her today.

I read your description- i have 3 girls, 1 spoo puppy, one old pound puppy and a cat! So funny :)

What a coincidence!
You might want to start holding a buzzy something (like a toothbrush) near her feet. Make it a game. My puppy who had fft done often was such a pro. Phoebe is quite another story. She’s coming around, but really hates her front feet being shaved.

I got tired of waiting for the groomer to approve her for vaccinations, so I watched some videos and did her fft. I think the feet was her first time. She did not love it but I think she did ok!

You did a very nice job! Especially her feet! Elroy doesn't let me do his feet without a lot of complaining!

Well she was not "happy" but we took a few breaks and snuggles and she squirmed a lot and we made it through :)

Doesn’t it feel good when you can see such a difference. I love seeing her little monkey toes!!
