Oh, he'll fall head over heels for that pup. I'm sure of it.
hmmm... I don't know about the mohawk! lol but I think the hair cut makes a huge difference in what the dog looks like and how you're viewed by others!I wouldn't worry about your hubby, I bet he will adjust to a Spoo in no time. Poodles may not looks macho, but let me tell you my Romeo is more of an alfa than I ever wanted. He's got quite a reputation in all the dog parks that we go to and even Rotties and Pits respect him.
I knew a guy who frequented my dog park years ago. His standard poodle sported a mohawk.....just a thought.
lol... our Yorkie had bows in her top knot all the time and he still took her in public without a second thought, it was the cutest thing! I think he got more attention from women when he had the pup with him! lol so that might have been part of the attraction! kidding! :laugh:My Dh is also not so much a 'dog guy' (he's a cat person - LOL, but we got the cats first, now it's my turn for a dog), but he was willing. Let me tell you he's fallen for Bella just as much as I have. Plus, though she is a poodle, she is a BIG poodle with a hearty bark so I wouldn't worry about the macho stuff. Well, unless you clip her in a continental and put a pink bow on her ears with a diamond pink leash, then he might mind. But since he loved a yorkie, and I'd be hard pressed to imagine a less "macho" dog, I would bet he will love any dog in your family.
Men are funny... :curl-lip: I think this may be part of my hubby's issue too... he had a really hard time when the yorkie went, maybe he doesn't want to get too attached like last time? Either way, like you, the dog is MY dog! I will take it to obedience classes and for walks, feed and clean up after it, and groom it! And to be honest, that's the way I want it! It's my thing! He has his hobbies, this is going to be mine! With that being said, I still want him to love Rogan and feel proud to call him our family dog! :dog:The dogs are MINE he doesn't feed( might water if its out) walk clean up after them or anything. I do catch him petting and cuddling Casey or rarely Mandy as she barks at him to warn me he is around. ( long story but after a month split we are working things out) We just bought a brand new place in the city again and it was a long process deciding on floors and what and where the dogs can and can't go.
Right now we are on 3 acres and he will play ball if I have them out and he is out but never takes them out so he doesn't have to worry if they run ( they don't)
Not sure if all this will change in the city but I know dogs and mine will change as they will need a walk 2xs a day He is trying so I hope so and Mandy is actually barking less so something must be working.
Anyways he wasn't worried about owning poodles mind you neither of them sports a continental cut LOL he is just not a dog person after putting down our Malamute years ago he isn't one to get attatched. The mastiff was even harder and he swore he would never take a dog to be put down again if I want a dog I have to deal with the end as well now.
I think you're totally right! It won't be long til he's head over heels!I think he won't be able to help himself. He will fall head over heals for Rogan. Even though he won't have cute little bows for conversation, we all know that Rogan's striking color will make him the talk of the town.
I would be careful to let their relationship develop on it's own and not force it. I think Rogan will have him wrapped around his paw in no time, especially wanting to go on a run with your hubby (if he's allowed to do that with him :wink: )
Hey Sloan! I would love to see pictures of the teddy bear cut... do you have any on here?lol.....i hear him.
we really didnt want the poodle due to the foo foo mentality. But then I learned it was not so much the poodle that was the issue, but the cut of the dogs hair....lol. (when you hear poodle, there is a certain image that comes to mind)....."not that there is anything wrong with that"..seinfield
our dog is not being used for show or breeding so we can cut his hair anyway we want and we are going to keep to the teddy bear cut. It looks like a more 'masculine cut'...lol.
I love the second picture you've posted, the dog is all fluffy with a clean shaven face. I don't care for the hair on poodle's face. It's gotta be clean shaven. My groomer uses #40 blade against the hair grwoth, very clean and lasts 3 weeks.hmmm... I don't know about the mohawk! lol but I think the hair cut makes a huge difference in what the dog looks like and how you're viewed by others!
here's 2 very different looks and I love them both! I'm hoping to try them out with our guy:
I much prefer the second picture myself, although the Red guy caught my attention too! I think he's gorgeous, and I like how neat and trimmed his face is without being totally shaven... I have always loved the shaved faces but I might try this one from time to time... we'll see how it goesI love the second picture you've posted, the dog is all fluffy with a clean shaven face.
