A couple of days later I decided that while his full coat was beautiful, my little guy just needed to be a puppy. I cut him in to a short teddy bear style and let me tell you it was like night and day! He ran around, jumping, playing with Wilson... and it was amazing! He was so full of himself it made me cry. Now obviously this isn't right for everyone, but for Mr. Cooper, a playful short cut was the way to go . Yeah, I still ooh and ahhh at the gorgeous full coats, bows and all that, but now I just get to enjoy it in pictures lol!
Wilson and Cooper look so cute in their current teddy bear cuts. Im so glad that you knew exactly what Cooper needed at exactly the right time in his life!

Once again the theme of so many posts in this thread seems to be "Phases/stages of life"........ And for us as owners to be aware of when its time to make changes.

Thank you Paulann, Geneva definitely has a beautiful coat, but there is NO way I could keep up with it sooooooo thick

I do think show dogs have to have the patience of a angel. I went to National's in 2016, those sweet babies sit for sometime being groomed. I loved watching them glide as they did their strut. It looked like they were floating

Pat I remember when you showed beautiful Ava, you two were meant for one another.
I loved looking at the pictures, brought back memories of the good ole days.
Ava is growing old gracefully, still a beauty.

I wish I could have watched you both, Ava is such a tiny little girl I bet she floated when she walked.
Does she have the strut?
Geneva has that strut, I love watching her, I wish there was a video of Geneva when she was shown.
Poor Geneva she will never look like that again. I wouldn't even know how to groom like that.

Now Ava is a celebrity she has quite the following on Facebook.
I love to check in on her from time to time

Paulann does Abella have thick hair?
Maddie has fine thin hair, never mats, but Maddie doesn't like me spending a lot of time grooming her, she was a show girl but didn't make the cut

It's funny to see just how different my girls are, Maddie is a barker, stresses easily
Geneva only howls when I am not within site, she's very easy going, wants to please me.
I'm glad Katherine trained her, I'm a push over and Maddie knows it.

What is Abella's personality like? She's a beauty

My groomer keeps Whispy's hair longer than I would have liked, but out here I learned there was an advantage. We have foxtail weeds out here and they can be very dangerous.

Whispy's thick coat appears to grab the foxtails before they can latch onto skin. Of course, I still need to check him carefully, especially his feet and inside ears, but the ones that attach to the coat are easy to see and remove.

Gee, the picture that is shown with my posts is from Whispy as a puppy. He's twice that size now and his hair is thicker and longer. Wish I could change the pix that shows with posts.

I always feel glad when I hear that a showdog gets to 'retire'. Usually then they get a shorter haircut in their retirement, and much less of the uncomfortable grooming.
