Lisa Bailey looks so cute in that pic - his coat is really shining despite the muck!!

I finally had my temptations quelled yesterday at training when our instructors blonde lab Sandy decided to have some tumble with Scruff - she was clean beforehand and after she was just streaked with mud!

If I had a blonde dog I wouldn't be able to help myself from washing it all the time!!!

I would not get another White Poodle it will have to be red or chocolate next time! some times I end up bathing Bailey up to 3 times a week, some humans don't bath this much! But it’s my own fault because I just can’t bear seeing him messy, actually I quite enjoy grooming him and am thinking of going back to a Poodle clip, I think I might do a Lamb clip but not do his body to short, I think what put me off of the Lamb clip was when I got him he was almost no hair on his body with long legs but I have seen other Lamb clips with a slightly longer coat on the body but I’m sure Carol or Barb will let us know how it is supposed to be done.
