I have my non-sporting grooming exam later in the year, but in 3 weeks I have a workshop for it where we basically do a 'mock' version of the exam so we can figure out what we're doing and get help on whatever we need help with etc etc. I'm obviously gonna use Paris for the practical grooming side of it (I gotta groom a poodle, no choice on breed for the non-sporting exam!) but she's got to have a minimum of 6 weeks growth, including her FFT! It's been 3 weeks already, though the first 10 days was fine, it's getting worse and worse now; she's so hairy on her face!!!! Ugh

I love Paris! She must have personality plus because her personality shines through in her pictures. I love to read of your adventures and see all the fun things you participate in. Thanks for sharing!

I can't even imagine your pain! I religiously do vegas's face weekly, and feet and tail every other, rofl. You can make it! We'll still love her even if she's a yeti! :love:

Paris is such a beautiful girl. Hang in there, you can do it :). I am terrible at grooming so dare not touch Jasper's face or feet at this point. He sees the groomer every 5 weeks. His face starts bothering me during week 2 after a groom. I suppose I should learn to at least do face and feet.

I normally do Paris' face feet & tail with a 30 blade, and I generally do it every week-10 days, but it can go for a couple of weeks ok before I have to shave it... this last week has been a killer, and there's still 3 weeks to go! The staining around her eyes is the worst. UGH!!! It's minimal, and not at all noticeable when she's shaved, but when it's hairy.... ewww!

Only a few more hours until Paris' big poodle party!!!!!!! I'll make a new thread for those pics later tonight... but for now HAPPY BIRTHDAY PARIS!!!!

awwwwwww, I just got this in an email from Paris' breeder:


remember I only found who Paris' breeder was through a lot of hunting (found her birth date in vet records, looked up the NZ kennel club for spoos of that birth date and found one and the breeder name, looked up the breeder name in the online phone book and called her up while crossing my fingers.... hahaha! The spoo I found on NZKC was Paris' sister the breeder kept and still shows. :) ) I love that we keep in touch now as I never thought I could have found her breeder having NO info on her! lol.
