Very cute! Does it not happen alot? Because I could not find hardly any pictures of them unclipped or untrimmed. I am going to show this to my friend. His daughter is getting a miniature poodle for her valentines present(she has wanted one for years and they just moved into a new house(her and her husband) and so he wanted to get a housewarming/valentines day present for her) He already asked the hubby and he said that they have been looking. But he wanted to know what they looked like unclipped. I told him I would find him a pic but it proved harder then I thought! She likes the puppy trim on them and that is probably what they will do. Thanks for the picture though!!
I hardly ever trim Misha. Only once a year. But you have to do it.. otherwise they do get really bad tangeled.. You can do it yourself I do mine.. But there are differant types of coats as well I don't remeber the name of the kind Misha has but all silver colored poodles have the same thats why they can't be bred with any other color (exept white). it's the poofy kind :P lol others have a tighter curly coat.. don't know how often they need to be trimmed..
I also love the unshaved face.. but poodles suck on the fur around there mouth so you have to brush thier teeth at least once a month or take them to the vet once a year and get them cleaned if you keep the facial fur.
I think it is adorable. My own daughter wants a poodle SO bad. She is only 6 right now, and I have told her that she cannot have a dog until she is at minimum 13 yrs old.(She is willing to wait for it) She has wanted a poodle since she could first talk. She has a buddy at my dog training that gets SO excited to see her. So while I am doing research for this friend of mines dad, I am also learning things myself!
I have a silver toy too. I don't have any of him unclipped on the computer but I do have some of him in sort of a puppy cut. I groom both of my dogs at home. I clip Owen every couple of weeks with a pair of scissors because he is nervous around the pair of clippers. If I can do it, anyone can lol
btw I don't know if bishons and poodles are related they do look alot like eachother.. never thought of it.. I know the bischon is from the Canari Islands and the poodle is from Germany. But the Bishon was brought to the Canari Islands as a gift to royalty or some high and mighty being..
I love the silver coat to.. that was the reason I got Misha. They're pretty unusual over here to, so People still call me and wonder when I'm having another litter. Hey, can I ask your oppinion on something.. Is it to late to have another litter on her she'll be eight in october.
When I was grooming there was someone that brought their black poodle in that did not have any of the fancy cuts done. He had a really good coat. Real full, even the face. Wish you could have seen him. He looked like a big ole bear. You just don't see them that full because most people want the special cuts, be he was darling. His coat was just like it had been scissored.
