A friend of mine gave Vinnie a bumper and it's been loads of fun for him - I can throw it a lot further than a regular toy. The one she gave him was canvas, so I stopped at Scheels to get a vinyl one so he had something different to retrieve. I groomed him this morning and decided it was time for more photos. I didn't take much hair off - just did face and tail and tried to even up his lines a bit. You can see the groom best in the photos with the black/white bumper. I love playing with all that hair!!

Oh mine would love that type of toy. He'd retrieve it a couple of times and be done though. He's kind of ADD when it comes to retrieving.LOL

Vinnie's tail is looking long and feathery. As usual, great action shots! When you trim him, do you use a snap on comb for his body? If so, which one do you use? He looks like velvet.

Thanks!! I love that tail - I still can't bring myself to trim it!! :biggrin:

If I want to take off a lot of hair, I'll use combs (I have the Wahl Stainless Steel ones), but I scissor after that to get things neat and tidy. Most of the time I just scissor everything except the shaved areas.

I love Vinnie pictures!! He is so handsome looking! That canvas bumper looks So funny and Big in his mouth! He seems like a retrieving feind! Riley has the plastic orange one and he Loves it! I think i have some water pictures of it with him. It is our special water toy.

Your photos of Vinnie never fail to make me smile!! :D It's really cool to see him so enthusiastic about retrieving!

You're doing a great job grooming him, he looks really good. His fur looks so silky and soft too <3

Is Vinnie a standard?? I thought he was but he must be tiny! You said he was 7 months and 22 lbs and I had to double take, haha. Desmond is 6 months and 44 lbs so maybe he's just really big for a standard. -shrug- I don't know, either way Vinnie is an absolute DOLL!!

Vinnie is technically a standard - he's about 17", but he's a "Kleinpudel" or "Moyen" - kind of an in between size. I love his size - just perfect for me!
