So, I bit the bullet and took Rosie to the groomer. It was a lovely place - a converted shed in the garden (it was much more swish than that sounds) and is run by a mother/daughter team. They were immediately lovely to Rosie and to my little girl who came for the ride. They even let my daughter choose a bow for Rosie's collar.

The daughter does the clipping and she spend quite a while with me talking about what I wanted (I showed her the pictures of Nell) and then explaining that as Rosie's coat is so 'cotton wool-y', she didn't really want to clip it as it wouldn't give a good result. We settled on her scissoring all over, taking her 'trousers' in quite close (cos of all the excited peeing!) shaving her ears a bit and shaving her paws underneath. I am really happy with the results, but very very pleased that this site prepared me for the poofiness!!!

So, here's the proof:

Yesterday:



Today:




I am particularly pleased with her face - she's made it easier for Rosie to see out, without making her look like a different dog! And she said Rosie was really good, coped well with two driers on her at the same time and was just a bit squirmy with the ear shaving.

I'm a very proud mummy!

Oh, and Rosie travelled in my mini for the first time!

She looks lovely but isn't it a shock when you see them looking like big old fluffball after their first groom! My parents love Betty looking like it but I much prefer her a bit scruffier!! Love Rosie and your daughter in the back of the car - and good to see another Mini driver!!

Aaaw! Pretty girl!!

I feel the cockapoo's pain. My hair looks similar after I wash it and it takes bucketloads of serum to calm it down!

its a personal choice, some people would think my lot were silly with the slinny bodys and fluffy legs.

as long as you are happy with the cut then that is the one you stick with. look out photos of what you like and show the groomer.

Flossie will be getting her first trim very soon. Looking a little dishevelled.
Whats the shortest you can have them cut before they look silly?
You can always cut more next time if you think it's necessary...but it takes a loooong time to grow back once it's cut. We are living that life lesson right now. I would love to have the scruffy puppy look back.

Great job! Rosie would be a groomers dream because she's naturally so pretty. Just wash and dry and a quick trim around the face and she looks a million dollars.

Ah, thanks! And thanks everyone for your nice comments. I think she is gorgeous, but then I am her mummy! Here is a picture of her a day afterwards, with her hair a little less 'poofy':



And here she is after two days on the beach! She's pretty much back to normal now, but her face is sooo much tidier and her 'trousers' much neater!
