Don't Look Jenn, I know you don't like it
I still have the post you made about his comformation/clip that I printed out. Haha, I keep it at work along with his client card LoL.
Okie, so this clip is starting to look better. Remember it's been undergoing major changes in the last few months. In April I had to shave him down because of matting and we have been regrowing and tweeking since then.
The orgional set of pictures are here in this thread http://www.poodleforum.com/showthread.php?t=1549
I'm sneaking the jacket backwards a little bit to provide more balance. Hopefuly that'll be ok, if he starts peeing on it though it'll have to be clipped farther forward (which looks a little dumb). Keeping the photo diary of sorts on his clip has been entertaining lol. I certainly notice more from the photos when I go back and look at them, than I do during the actual groom. I am usualy tired of him by the time we are nearing the end and bored so the pictures help a lot.
At this stage his jacket is still growing out and has not yet been scissored though I think I will start next time. His bracelets are a little high as well, especialy in the front. She likes them bigger, but I think I may lower them again and see what she says. She's the kind of client who notices things but not always right away. LOL. I'm thinking the rosettes are well on their way to looking the way that they should. The hips are the only thing other than the pattern work I did this week. I didn't touch the ankels, jacket, topknot or anything else. Just the rosettes and the clipper work.
Here is what he looks like now
I think it's an improvement for him, but then I might be a tad blind. I
