Lol...everytime Gunther takes a run through the yard after rain...which is 99% of the time here...I want a black spoo.Wow does he look awesome!!! Makes me want a white spoo to go with Wriggs!
Well I'm quite relieved to see that his legs look like that after the IV shave. Murphy's legs are about the same length and I'd hate to have to shave them down. The vet said they try to make it less noticeable with long-haired dogs and your vet certainly managed that.Yes,they did shave a little square on his front leg...you can barely see it.
Also,as you can see the side of his body was all shaved for the gastropexy,but it is growing back fast.
Good luck to you and Murphy with the surgeries.
Make sure you post updates regulary.
I am so glad it is over with.
2 weeks later they are completely back to normal.
My friend has a crested - no hair except head, tail and feet - it does feel weird to pet his skin! lol Gunther is such a beautiful boy! I love the cut!!!:high5:Yeah,he is adorable...I have to get used to petting him.
So far I do it through his sweater,because it feels so weird to pet the skin.
Stella is one of the sweetest poodles I ever met.
I was surprised to see the leg as well.Well I'm quite relieved to see that his legs look like that after the IV shave. Murphy's legs are about the same length and I'd hate to have to shave them down.

I did notice the part where they'd shaved for his pexy. By next groom you'll never know it was there. Since Murphy is being spayed, they'll be doing hers differently - a longer incision instead of the laparoscopy. I'm a little nervous, but the vet thinks the recovery time will be the same with the added procedure and we trust her. She's been looking after our pets for 20 years!
I'll be really glad to have this over, too. I'm not looking forward to trying to keep a 7 month old quiet, but I'm just looking forward to her first really good run and play once she's recovered.
