Now I don't feel so bad about Jack's last trim. You did a good job for your first time.

I waited a week before trimming up all the spots I missed. How I missed the band of 2 inch long hair I haven't figured out. I have discovered that I have to do scissors around his front legs. He get antsy with the clippers and we get into extreme battles.

Ya, I started out with the clippers, but since I don't use them on a regular basis she kind freaked out, so I just used scissors!
Gave her a bath today and she def. has some un even spots, but overall I like her trim!

Nice job!

Tammy you did a nice job with Tillie, especially using scissors. I can see the resemblance to Murphy in the face with these pictures. I just trimmed most of Murphy yesterday. I do the body with a clipper and snap on comb so I still leave a couple inches. It is the fastest way to trim Murphy. It is not completely perfect, but he gets so wavy, that it does not matter. I use scissors on the legs and face. I love using the thinning shears, but they are super sharp and I have cut myself twice already.

I did buy the Jodi Murphy DVD when I decided to take care of the grooming and it is helpful, although Murphy would never sit as well as the dog on the DVD. My biggest issue still is that a groomer shaved his nose area and I am trying to grow it out still.

Great work on Tillie!

hey! thanks! It amazes me how fast her hair grows!! I need to invest in some thinning shears as I have had her in a long coat and now trimmed and I really love the way she looks right now and plan on keeping her in a long scruffy 'puppy cut'!
How long do you keep Murphy's coat?? They look like they have very similar coloring... or they DID before Tillie grew up and lost 90% of her color! LOL

Tammy, how old was Tillie when she lost her color? Murphy is almost one and has gotten lighter but still has color, especially on his back and his face and ears.

I keep Murphy about 3 inches. He is longer than a puppy cut, but not a full long coat. I do keep his face trimmed around his eyes and top of his head so we can see his eyes. His legs are also a bit shorter, about an inch.

Tillie got lighter and lighter, I had to have her shaved down at 8 months old during blowing coat (her coat is VERY cottony) and at that point she lost most of her color, the darker blackish tips and the apricot coloring. She still has color on her ears... haven't cut those! LOL She will be 2 next month (gasp!!) and DOES have some light apricot on her back but it doesn't come through in pictures for some reason... or maybe only I can see it. LOL
glad that Murphy is holding some more color than Tillie is!!
