Things have been both sad and quiet on the forum lately. i haven't posted for a while and life has been very hectic. I am owing you beach pictures of Cici from her trip to Florida, which I promise to post soon!

I did have to cut off her whole skirt/fluffy legs and get her ready for the sand. It's too hot for her now already!

Cici says hi to all her cocker friends. I am getting better at this grooming thing!

She looks good. I'm having my annual 'what to do w/the haircut' debate with myself. How did you do her legs?

Thank you! To be honest, it's all tips and videos from this forum and I am not perfect yet. but i do like what i do with her top knot better than the groomer's styling of her "crown".

I don't have the time to shampoo her, dry her and then do her legs, so I do the best I can with scissors and blend it in with her upper legs and torso. I brush upward with a slicker brush and then shake her leg a bit, then trim. there is an old video on this forum i need to find the link to!

After she is bathed and dried, I even out her legs again when her fur is clean (the next day). Much easier to see what i've missed and faster.

In the "web" of skin btw her upper back leg thigh and ribs I leave some longer length so it's fuller and it doesn't "dip" in too much. They have funny looking legs when completely shaved down.

I shaved her down with a 7 all over in March. Her hair was just too long and we were going to the beach. She was so happy.

I use a 7 on her body right now. In the summer, I will use a 10 on the back half way down and then a 7 around her ribs and upper legs and chest.

I've got tons of tips from this forum.

It has been sad on the forum lately. :(

I love seeing your pics of Cici though! She reminds me so much of my Ruger. She's black, he's chocolate, but their faces and the white patches on their chest...almost look like they are related!

Looking forward to beach pics!

thanks so much for the kind words. Cici feels she deserves a bone for posing for me.
