More drawings as promised swing....


This drawing shows where the coat 'is'/'ends' in relation to your Bichon's fluff body.


(if you're not keeping your fluff fluff in a show cut, or even a modified show-clip, then this "coat outline" may not be for you blush.) 


How your flufferbutt fluff looks finally (outline-wise) also depends on his/her body shape to begin with blush.  So, it helps if you know the breed standard.... because grooming/scissoring to a certain extent wink2 is about accentuating your fluff's strengths and/or 'hiding' his/her faults shhh.  Often times, it is the attention to detail (eg: proper angulations, coat length etc) that makes a winning cut.... the difference between NICE thumbsup and



more drawings from Lindsey.... with her self-explanatory notes inscribed inside original.











Again, HAPPY SCISSORING everyone!!

I just nodding know Yeah these drawings of Lindsey will be so helpful for our home-groomers! swing

Del these diagrams are great.  The only thing I didn't understand was trimming the eyelashes.  Are you suppose to trim eyelashes?  Trevor has really long ones but I was afraid if I cut them, when they grew back they might grow towards his eyes instead of upwards.

Susan, Danielle, Eileen, I think nodding these drawings are GREAT thumbup too.  Which is why I'm so excited cubba our members here get to be beneficiaries of Lindsey's talent!!

wave Eileen, I know a few of us here do nodding trim our fluffers' eyelashes.  Personally blush, I've never had a problem with Bianca's eyelashes growing inwards (instead of upwards) after trimming. Then again, her lashes vain are soft, not at all hard/wiry (which might cause irritation if it's in contact with the eye(s) unsure) blush

I have a very stupid question on this.  Do you trim while the hair is wet, or dry?

Dry, preferably fluff dried (if you towel/air dry you won't get the same results).

alright, Del...can't wait to see them. oh, i scrolled down...there they are!  cheerleader

i did trim murphy's "head" yesterday and it turned out good blink! really! i think combing to hair to the side and trim what didn't fit it in did the trick! his head is still big compared to the rest of the body but i evened his coat out a little bit more and we are getting THERE! just a few more weeks Mad...i am ashamed to say i didn't have time to give him a bath yesterday but i will this weekend clown...

thanks again flowers...really, don't know what i would have done without you (as in this community and its members)...well, maybe i do know...would have had a shaved rat-looking dog that nobody would have known what it was... Laugh Hysterical Laugh Hysterical  Laughing Laughing blush2
