Smile Benji in the Puppy Cut

Benji Boy got his silky coat trimmed into a puppy cut. It is always a challenge to take Benji's pictures as he runs to sniff the camera.

Best, Poornima

Hey, that looks great, Poornima! I like how you kept some length to the coat.

Did you manage to do that yourself?

Drop dead GORGEOUS !!!!!

Benji's coat looks soooooo silky! Is it always silky or more so when he gets back from the groomers'? He has a beautiful new cut. I just love it!

Thanks!

Kimberly and Maryam, I wish I could take the credit but it was the groomer.

Kimberly, I go to the groomer at Dr. H's office.

Marj, Benji's coat is always silky. It gets even silkier when groomed. I use Coat Handler's conditioner at home (and his groomer uses the same).

Best, Poornima

Thanks! His coat was like a mop, almost touching the floor. I couldn't take his picture from the side where it clearly shows the trimmed length. It doesn't touch the floor any more and looks poofy enough. I will try to take some more pictures for the side view.

Best, Poornima

Ah, smart move! If it is the same groomer that they used to have, she is trained under a pro handler, so you were wise to use her. Good thinking!

And Marj, I've met a few really silky Havs and they almost always have black coats. Benji is the first Hav that is black & white that seems to have silky on both colors. Then again, his father has a very silky coat too (Carlito).
