If someone has a picture of their baby in a 3in.or so cut would you post it for me,PLEASE. Im thinking of getting Kirbies hair cut to around that length on the body,but keeping his hair on ears,face long enough for a topknot. I would like to have some pictures to show the groomer.I went through the Gallery and found a few,but thought you all might have more examples. Thanks...Sheila :D

OK so I measured Fantasia's hair (on her body) and it's almost exactly 3 inches. So I woke her up, prodded her until she stood up but she kept laying back down so I got her off the couch and tried to get a good picture of her. Her hair has not been brushed yet today and her top knot is from yesterday so her hair is a mess and she's not happy about being woken up but I got a picture for you lol. I hope it helps. I keep her head and tail long so you can only really check out the 3 inch body length.

I didn't post this one before because I didn't know you wanted to keep the face and tail long but I took this one when I took the other one. She noticed I was taking her picture so she ran away and I had to follow her to get this shot. She's looking up at me because she ran into a corner.



This is a better shot of her full haircut because you can see her head from the front.

Jodi, you do an excellent job grooming Fantasia yourself! How do you keep her beard so white? Lady's is permanently stained from her food and water even with daily washings.

Hey FannyMay! Just wondering...Since Fanny's tail is extremely long and her body hair is pretty long too, do they not tangle up at the base of the tail/butt area?

Btw, She's got a B-E-A UUUUTIFUL face!

Marj,
Her beard is actually a little yellow. It tends to fade after bath day but by the end of the week it's yellow again. I really don't do anything with it except comb it and wash her every 1-2 weeks.

ButterCloudandNoriko,
Yes she does get mats in that area. I just comb them out every once in a while.

I really don't groom as well as some of the people on this forum and I defiantly don't groom as often. Fantasia gets brushed once every 2-3 days and then it's not her entire body. I do a little at a time because she gets fussy if I brush her all in one day. She tends to not get too bad though so I can get away with it. The base of her tail is the worst and that's mostly because that's where she gets cottony. The cleaner she is the less she mats.

When we were at the vets the other day, the assistant (the one holding Fantasia down) kept commenting on Fantasia. She also kept asking about her tear staining and how I kept the stains away. I told her I didn't know, she just doesn't get that bad. I only wash around her eyes every couple of days. I told her it must have been in the breeding even though she was a puppy mill dog.
I like having a low maintenance dog lol.

Yeah, that was exactly the reason why I had to completely shave Cloud! Because his bumbum was totally matted. Why is it that their hair looks WAY shinier when it's very short and not nearly as shiny when it grows out? Must get dried up easily.
I can't keep Cloud in a long coat. He's big and so giving him a bath with long hair takes FOREVER! And he's such a baby! Oh well

Hair and more hair. I don't know how much longer I will keep him that way. Takes a lot more brushing and drying time. He has not had a hair cut since end of last October where I cut him completely down.
