Midland Musings From Jane

Hi one and all, not a lot has been happening around here. We are slowly adjusting to being a 2 dog household again, it’s been many years since there were so few dogs in our lives. Stella has had a marked change in personality, becoming far more relaxed and happier with her herself. Last weekend, Trevor, cruel man that he is, shaved both Stella and Maya back to their skins, (the photo of Maya is prior to her denuding).

I think the coats are going to have to come out if it gets as cold as the weatherman is predicting!  Talking about hair cuts I don,t know if any of you saw this little chap at Crufts a couple of years ago, it just goes show what can be achieved with clippers and scissors!!!!

There as been an influx of puppies into our village of late, a couple of Cockers, a beagle and the ubiquitous Staffies, they include Cloudy-Tara, Sherlock Homes and Tallulah Flowers, all christened by their tiny play group owners. Sadly there isn’t a beddlie amongst them! Any news on young Kermit,the boy in need of a home? Hope he gets fixed up soon.  Till the next time cuddle your bedlington it,s a wonderful way to keep warm.

Thank you Jane, lovely photo of Maya she has such a beautiful head. I saw the poodle in the bedlington trim at “Crufts”, quite amazing even got a top line. The little stubby face looks all wrong, just compare it to the lovely head shot of Maya. All the grooming in the world can’t hide the wrong shaped head! I have not head any news on Kermit but I am sure that puppy won’t be in rescue kennels for long!

The poodle was there 2 years on the trot, nice little thing!

Ive clipped 3 of the older dogs down to nothing, they have become much livelier & easier for my dad to wash when he dumps them in the rain butt at the garden! After there forages.

Hi Jane, kermit has been rehomed with a vet's nurse, who lost her Bedlington dog two year's ago, he was neuted last week and is now settling in well with his owner.

I am so happy to hear that Kermit has found a forever home.

I have taken my dogs down really short with a #5 blade & they do seem to be very lively afterwards...they go nuts!!

I have used a #40 before.

Donna said...

The poodle is called chicken and belongs to Lesley of Canine Design. She will be there again next year lol.
My dogs have just had a shortie too lol.

Trish said...

I use a #40 on the face, ears, tail and tummy, but a 5 on the body. Do you use a 40 on the body??

Tina W said...

Yes I have done-took a while to grow though!! lol

Trish, Tina is having you on she used a #40 by mistake. #5f is best it doesn't leave tram lines on them, or better still #7f cut's much better, #40 on tail's is a no no it make's them itch.
