Hi. I am trying, with the help of my son, to post some pictures. Let's hope it works...







Maisie will be 2 next week but is still little (5.3kg).

Look at her lovely ears .. she's beautiful :D
Thanks. But I've just discovered her ears have quite a lot of big mats which I'm now working on! I've recently switched from using groomers to buying clippers and doing it myself. Trouble is, with ears I only trim cos am anxious not to cut her ear - difficult to know what is ear and what is mat. :confused:

Do others whom groom do much to ears? Is thinning required or is just a trim sufficient.

Maisie has a coat that mats all the time which is a little exasperating :( (Have ordered Tangle Remover and am waiting for it to arrive!)

Wilf ears are curly but grow down as opposed to out, there is no volume to them so I just literally cut the bottom and its easy to see where the ear is x

Lovely tight coat .... ear trim ummmm not sure, Oakley's ears sound like Wilf's (Karen's Cockapoo) so I am not too sure .... maybe Kendal or Mandy can help ..

Mind you I love her ears like that .. but I do understand that matting could be an issue.

I just go a bit soppy when I see pics of any cockapoo and want to hug them ... Am I very strange or does anyone else feel like that????

Not soppy at all - they are very huggable dogs!! They definitely have the look of a teddy bear about them!

Does anyone have the "ear mats" problem? Maisie does seem to have an easily matting coat - have to comb through neck after removing collar as mats begin to form.

Thanks!

Oh bless her! Would love to see her with Betty as they are a similar weight so would love to see what they look like next to each other!!!

Sue she is gorgeous and does look tiny; was she a toy cross, I can't remember? Izzy's ears mat all the time and I just spend hours combing them out and then massage in some coat conditioner and that helps. I used the Tropiclean last bath and that seems to have made it worse but Stephen and Julia at Jukee Doodles use Tropiclean anti mat (or something like that) I am going to read back on the post and investigate.

Jules: Betty and Maisie would look sweet together. Yes they do look a similar size, nice contrast of colours too!

Cara: Maisie is a mini cross (not toy!) although tiny. She was the smallest in her litter I think.

Its Toopiclean De Matt, which is out of stock at the moment, but Topiclean Tangle Remover is just the same I think so I will be trying that soon!!

I just got some shampoo, conditioner and tangle remover on JD's recommendation and hope to give it all a go tomorrow so will let you know - watch out Flo, this time tomorrow you'll be smelling of aloe vera and kiwi. Does anyone want to put money on her finding a nice fox poo to roll in during her Sunday romp??

Yes, they always do something horrid after a grooming session. Spent ages brushing and combing Maisie yesterday then she went in the garden and rolled in what's left of my forget-me-nots and came back in covered in tiny seeds which are a devil to get out! :mad:

I'd be very interested to hear how you get on with the Tropiclean products, especially the tangle remover. Hope it goes well . . .
