Top Knot's

Hi all --

Another silly question from me. I took Snickers to her first grooming appointment the other day. She came out looking really cute with big big BIG fur and her bangs up in a top knot with a cute bow holding it.

Sadly this 6 month old puppy's custom quoif lasted all of about 25 minutes before the bow was out and her bangs were once again covering her eyes.

I tried - really tried to get the [email protected]!n bow back on and her top knot looking good - to no avail. She doesn't much like anyone messing around her head and face under the best of conditions -- with me tugging and twisting her bangs she was about fed up and no it wasn't the best of conditions.

So, what's the secret? I went out to Pet Smart and picked up a package of bows and bands, and a couple of clips. But still can't imagine how to get both the band and the bow on and have it actually stay put for 'a while (like maybe a day?)'. Educamate please!.

They learn !!! We all went throught what you did. Repitition and it becomes a daily routine habit. I say "pony time" and they just lay down and let the boring deed be done and over with. Repitition, repitition, repitition.

I, too, feel your pain in that the beauty only lasts about 20 minutes. I stink at putting in top knots, but surprisingly my 10 yo daughter is great at it.
