I think I found someone within a couple hours drive to help me learn poodle grooming for show poodles! I'm really excited! I've only talked to her via e-mail but will call her as soon as I get my voice back.. (darn winter colds anyway!) She says she is also a professional handler, so maybe I can get a closer look at the ins and outs of the poodle ring, if things go well! I was just about ready to clip Cash down, but now I'm going to see if we can't put him in a puppy show cut and then in late spring or early summer do the continential on him. I can't wait!
