Goofiest dog ever

I was away attending my daughter as she gave birth to just about the cutest, sweetest baby born since she was born herself (shameless proud grandma!) and came home to a RIDICULOUS puppy.

Suki is absolutely goofy looking. Just a puff, with a little black nose (if you look close) Just a mop of wild, unruly bed-head big-hair 80s fluff. I can't even look at her without cracking up. It is sort of cute, but very awkward. It is growing right INTO her eyeballs and she is tearing a lot. Everything grows straight OUT or UP. Plus her ears are constantly flopped over, and she often does a hysterical "Flying Nun" thing where her ears stick out & open to the side.

Amazingly, my hubby kept her coat in check! My question is about how long until the coat lays down and the ears are weighted? Should I be "training" it around her mussel to lay down or it is fruitless to try?

To short for a topknot but I do a little Pebbles Flintstone to get her use to it.

Thanks

Now I am really never going to get anything done!

Ha! You've got a long way to go! I think usually by 6 months or so the muzzle hair is STARTING to lie down, and by that point, you can usually get a "unicorn horn" pony in their bangs… for as long as they'll leave it alone!

You'll be able to do a top knot with enough hair probably by 9 months or so if memory serves me right.

Truffles is six months old and the groomer was able to make two little horns with bows It looked pretty cute, but only lasted one day.

That bit that is going into her eyeballs you can start training by gently tugging in the direction you want it to go. Similar to curling ribbons on packages. Or you can use a little chapstick as gel.

TTFN,

So Archer is just about 4 months now. Our breeder did trim the hair between his eyes before we got him, but I haven't trimmed it since. I have been thinking I am not going to, but it is starting to get into his eyes. I have been training it into the desired directions and occasionally using a bit of vaseline on my fingers if needed. But is there any reason to trim any of it at all? I plan to keep him in a long puppy cut and I want to be able to see his eyes. I can still see them now. I have been desensitizing him to closed scissors brushing his snout just in case and what the heck anyway. But should I really stay the course and not trim at all??
