I'm looking into simple pet cuts, something clean lined and halfway easy to care for.
The issue is, Ray-Ray has no eyes. His eyelids are semi-fused shut and that kind of freaks people out when it's mentioned. Right now, all his shaggyness covers those eyes so people arn't so startled, but he looks just so raggedy.

I want something nice, neatly done, but won't frightened people away from him when he goes out with us (and he goes everywhere with us.. Molly insists on it).

Granted, he's brushed out every day so we have no matting issues.

Any suggestions so he dosn't look so unkept?

I would say a teddy bear clip would look good on him. It's pretty much what you have now, just neatened up a little. He looks adorable with his fluffy little face and it does hide the fact that he has no eyes.

I'll upload some pics later.

excuse the colour but this is a sort of teddy bear/jap style face





you could always have him trimmed like a kerry blue so you cant see his eyes at all..

This makes me sad... I'd be honored to meet Ray-Ray and wouldn't be freaked out AT ALL!! I think the pictures you posted in your introduction post were A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E!!!! I just wanted to smooch his little face!!! I wish people were more accepting of differences...

I'm sure whatever "do" you decide on for him will be awesome! His heart and spirit will shine through!

Smooch his little face for me, would'ja?? :)

newpoodlemum, Oh my gosh, those are adorable cuts! Are the ears in the first trim pompoms on the bottom? Just like a Bedlington's cut?

Harley Chik, Fantastic Pictures! I love the idea of getting a kerry blue cut for the face, but that wound smooshy balls around the poodles face is ..just so perfect.

Lots to work with, lots of great ideas and I appriciate all this help from everyone.


and plumcrazy, you ever make it to the midwest, I'd be more than happy to meet up and let you smooch Ray-Ray's little face all you want. If you don't mind his kisses in return. He kisses so delicatly, like a tiny very insistant mouse.

Meanwhile, I'll just have Molly and me do all the smooches for you.

I definitely recommend the Teddy Bear trim, maybe a bit modified so it covers his eyes. :) The Kerry Blue idea is awesome! I think that would look really good too, especially with his colors. He's so cute! I totally love his coloring.

That's my personal favorite from Harley's gallery. Love love love it!
And if people are uncomfortable that he has no eyes than the cute, approachable teddy bear look and his sweet personality may help them ease up.
