Hitchcock's First Top Knot



Be nice, please... it's my first top knot (ever!) too, LOL! I haven't perfected the top knot technique yet. Hitchcock was in desperate need of a top knot as this is what he was looking like day to day:



If you can't tell, that's Kubrick wondering if his little brother even HAS eyes! As I'm sure you know this look hasn't been very conducive to training, so a top knot was absolutely required. I think he looks ADORABLE with it. Of course then Kubrick decided that he just needed to play with his brother and this is what it looked like afterward (his beard is wet because they just had dinner):



Too bad I still think it's cute... even if lopsided! Here's a picture of the proud top knot wrecker who believes that real dogs wear bangs, not girly knots:

LOL! It's adorable! I love the expressions between the three photos with the top knots. You could do a little story board with those.

I love it. It's a great first top knot. I always love seeing their eyes.

He is cute, you did a great job. Just be very careful your other pup doesn't pull the top knot out when they are rough housing.

Oh Lina...you have made my day..I just posted a picture of Bentley with his top knot apologizing I did this to a little boy...but what choice do we have when they in the "tweener" stage and you just cannot see their eyes. I LOVE Hitchcock's top knot...not an easy task, is it? Hitch is growing like a weed...what a handsome little guy.

Thanks guys! I think he looks handsome as ever, though Spencer is now calling him Hitch-a as he says he looks like a girl now. Secretly, though, he likes it... he's been telling Hitchcock he can see his eyes now and they are just such cute eyes!

I'm not worried about Kubrick pulling off the top knot at all. He's played with both Guapo and Pablo who both have top knots for days at a time and never once went for it. I think he just thinks of it as an extension of the dog. Plus, he never goes for the top of the head when playing, it's always the side/neck area.

Carolina, Hitch is wearing his first top knot as manly as it gets When Pablo's hair was this short and I wanted to avoid the 'palm tree', I used to put two bows in in a row with the first one being just a little higher than between his eyes.

Lina,
I love the picture of Kubrick trying to see under Hitchcock's bangs to see if he still has eyes in there!
