but not really what I was hoping for when I started grooming T this morning!



Anticipating coat change and as we're still taking the boys to the beach this time of year for another few months I thought I'd cut T's body down, and take down the crest I was doing for the 'modern' thinking if I left his legs he would still look kinda stylish, and would show off his shape.

Not really sure what happened, but by the time I had finished trying to make his legs even he was left with not much at all :sad:

I tried to cut in a V topknot, but now he just looks like a giraffe! Think his topknot is still too big, and is contributing to making him look unbalanced.

He was such a good boy today, didn't fidget hardly at all and I still couldn't do a good job! I couldn't make him stand there any longer to keep trying to fix things up. Sometimes I really wish there was an experienced groomer somewhere closer, who could cut in a pattern for me to follow!

I think he looks great. You did a nice job. One thing with fixing things up is I do to much fixing then go OOPS to short LOL.
Really he looks nice

I think he looks lovely! I know how hard it is to groom your own poodle because we have the same issue. NO professional groomers around to do it for me either. Just keep at it and you'll get better. The best thing about a poodle is that their hair grows back.

Blue Fox, I think that T looks great. His coat looks sooooooo very soft and velvety. Do you think this is his adult coat now? Its funny how we really can't tell exactly what type of coat our fur friends will eventually end up with when they are babys, looks like T's is just perfect. I really love how your even cut on his body shows off his gorgeous shape. I think that you did a beautiful job on him. I bet T knows that he is looking good, most poodles seem to get that attitude about them after they get all prettied up.

Thanks for the vote of confidence guys. He is velvety soft and his coat looks much nice now that I have removed the burnt ends (think it's sun, salt etc.. damage on the ends). Once his legs grow back in I will be happier with the overall look.

Fuzbutz I don't think this is his adult coat yet, it is still quite soft and the bad matting has only just begun I think. Not sure how long coat change lasts but I expect we have at least a few more months, that's if it has even started yet cause I am not really sure!

Blue Fox,

You did a fantastic job! T is looking sooo mature and handsome. His color is very attractive too.

Again, great job and his head looks good too.
