    Was purely accidental! Tried just 'trimming' her legs..ended up having to do her whole body because i cut too much!! Oops!! :lol:

    Anyways, here's the results. Few bald patches but not too bad if i may say so myself! For a complete novice at least... haha

    Though it looks like she's not impressed and is hiding under the washing line :lol:

    We did the same thing with Jena today, yours looks much better, you made a good job of it :thumbup: Did you use clippers or scissors, or both?

    We ordered dog clippers from Amazon, they were delivered today, only managed to do along Jena's back and side, not brave enough for anywhere else on her yet. I'm sure we'll get better with practice.:)

    aw adorable :)

    See maybe keep doing it and if you think you can really do it, you won't have to take her to grooming parlour and you can save money :)

    Daisy looks so beautiful :)

    Wish i could groom mika. I can only do his face but the rest of it - nah lol

    Well done!! Heidi doesnt moult and I wouldnt know where to start "stripping" so I use a Coat King.

    You certainly made a brilliant job of it.

    I Would love to have a bash with scissors but think my end result would be a "should have gone to specsavers" job :D:D:eek:

    You've made a fantastic job there, in impressed. Was the hiding under the clothes drier her way of saying, "ok enoughs enough now" it certainly looks like it bless her she's beautifull with a very clever mummy!!!!!!!!!!
