This was listed on the web as a modified lamb as a PET, I think this cut is SUPER Sweet looking - how do you maintain those long layers on the legs?

Some cuts look great on one color and not another - I think this might suit silver. :)??

Does Suri have those silver legs that fade? Either way I think that cut would look gorgeous on her, or even Olie at that since he has that gorgeous fluffy apricot/cream coat.

Should be easy to maintain so long as you are prepared to comb and brush :) I used to do a clip on a darker silver a long time ago that was similar to this. It was a little cleaner though for lack of a better word. More ummmm... what am I trying to say.... manicured? They legs were somewhat scissored.

I think you are right. I don't think I'd like that on a black dog as much as I like it on that cream dog. I think that it would look really nice on a silver.

My black spoo had that exact cut - and he looked great :). But again - in my eyes he would have looked great in any cut LOL

Yeah I am thinking high maintenance on those legs but NOT the body so maybe a trade off.

How short do you think this body is on him?

Suri looks great short, she was groomed that way when she came with us. And I think Olie would look cute too although he has a lot of growing out now to do:) His trial mustache is growing too hehe.....we shall see.

It looks like spoofan gets Gunther's body taken pretty short.. I'd guess a #5 or even #7 after looking over some of her pictures of him, though it's really up to you on how short you want the body. You could try a #3 or 1/2in or 3/4in snap cone and just work your way down. :)

http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/4155046436/ you can see the length on him on this one, I think this is more of a freshly groomed picture.

Or here http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/4134641287/ I really like how streamline it makes his body look ^^

I hope she doesn't mind me linking these. :x

This is most helpful FS.

I think since Olie is set in line for this cut we may try it on him first once we get a little more growth.

Also Suri went Miami this morning!! OH GOSH.... :)

This cut is quite common in England. It is one that I like, as it seems to be less fussy, for a pet dog.

I apreciate that the 'show cuts' are required for showing, how do those of you with ' pet dogs' trim?

Yes, I am originally from Europe LOL and that is why my spoo had that cut : )) !!!

It is really "no fuss" cut and since body is not kept shaven to the skin it can even be maintained by scissoring. I did not shave his face to skin either. Many of that style also have a "mustache".

I think that that cut can look very "macho" on a black dog if one keeps front legs with little bit more hair than back ones - black males than really look impressive which I like about blacks anyway LOL.

Hi
I have not been here in ages....

Gunther's body is done with # 4
Face and feet are # 30
Sanitary area is @ 10
Legs are left longer,but scissored into shape,so that,for instance the back of his hind legs,on the upper part...the hair is only about 1/2 inch long...versus up to 3 inches elsewhere.
My new groomer is a master at scissoring.

Here are couple of pictures...it will link you to flickr and you can see hundreds of Gunther's pics.

The silver spoo is my daughter's Stella,who is in a similar cut to Gunther's.

OMG I fell in love with Gunther!

Olie our apricot is growing out as week speak in hopes I can have him set in the modified lamb I had seen previously of Gunther.

I love this cut on him and Stella, I have a silver girl too and I can SO see her in this too. AND I think I might have a lead on an experienced groomer of spoos!! Thanks for posting, I LOVED THESE PICS!
