Well I suspect you already know what I think! I am definitely with Claire and Johanna, but as we all know it is hair and you can grow it back if you want. It is a bummer that it was an oops ending and not your plan.
I just love clean poodle faces though. I took Lily and Javelin to New Jersey today for match ring time and there were quite a number of poodles there (maybe more poodles than any other breed in fact). Aside from us there were two other standards, two toys and a beautiful black mini girl. I know the black mini from seeing her and her handler and her other dogs around at matches and trials, but today was sort of casual later in the day so I spent some time talking to her handler and her husband. And spent some with this sweet girl in my lap. One of the other people coming to work in the ring is also someone I know and she looked at me and I told her Javelin shrank (he and Lily were in my car, done for the day). We had a good giggle.
