Life's not always easy when your name is Buffie... and you have a boy poodle.

Raleigh's got a new style
It was such a nice afternoon (NO WIND) so Savanna and I decided to break out the clippers and give our grooming skills a little practice. We pulled the patio table over to the outlet, plopped him up there and clipped away. He did pretty good, but I have to say Savanna and I did really good. Between the two of us we remembered all we were taught, and he turned out looking like a poodle. We ran out of daylight before we got his feet clipped, but we will do those in the next few days.
I took the pictures below before he was completely dry, but you can see that he doesn't look like a chicken nugget this time.
"How very unlike are poodles and greyhounds! Yet they are of one species."
"They're not dogs (poodles). They're art."
"Poodles are Labradors with a college education. After a day of retrieving your Lab wants to curl up and snore in front of the fire. A poodle wants to be a fourth at bridge and tell naughty stories." -Anne Rogers Clark
"I wonder if other dogs think poodles are members of a weird religious cult."
"If my poodle doesn't like it? Neither do I!"
"Don't let the fur fool you."
"I know that dogs are pack animals, but it is difficult to imagine a pack of standard poodles ... and if there was such a thing as a pack of standard poodles, where would they rove to? Bloomingdale's? "
