Thanks for joining the blog hop Jan!

I have no argument to the actual grooming (clipping of hair and making presentable) I think it's the dye I don't care for, mostly because I ask WHY and get no answer? Why take a perfectly lovely looking dog and dye it some crazy color? But then I mostly don't get body piercing either. ;-)

Thanks so much for joining the Barks and Bytes blog hop. While at a dog show last month, we were set up next to a bunch of poodles who were being groomed. You are right, they all seemed to love it. Quite a contrast to our Chessies who get zero grooming pre-show, (well if they have been out in the field, we might spray some good smelling stuff on them....lol).

I think it can be over the top but if the poodles are happy, who cares?

But it is always kinda interesting to see who can do it with the best "taste".

I agree with you on both counts...if it's not hurting the dogs...to each their own. But me, I don't get it at all, and to sit there and WATCH it, sounds as fun as watching a pot of water come up to a boil.

As long as they're not hurting the dogs, I don't have a problem with it. Live and let live.

I know that poodles love being combed, petted, brushed. The weird color thing though is well, weird!

i have a small (under 7 pound) black poodle beast. she says she is NOT in favor of being brushed or groomed at ALL, but will TOLERATE it.

her opinion is that her stink is all her own and she should be allowed to keep it...but that having a nice uniform short haircut (except for ears and tail pouf) is comfortable, especially in the texas summertime. my opinion is that if she is going to insist on being a GROWTH on me (she's a snuggler) she is going to be
brushed and clean-smelling. ;)

oh and mama is the only one with crazy colored fur (hair) in this house. shadow's is black with silvery muzzle fur, mine is magenta. *G*

This is so fascinating. My family only recently got our first poodle. It felt like the Olympics of grooming every grooming! And pet supplies were practically foreign objects. We've since become more familiar with the processes. In fact, my mom is looking into entering our dog into some extreme dog grooming competitions.
