Her whiskers are gone

... and I was being such a huge baby about getting them done LOL. I adore her little snoot whiskers. Alas, after evaluation with a handler at a funmatch last week (where she did me proud) the handler did, (as I knew she would) mention the whiskers, given I'm hoping to get her CKC Ch. The handler finished Nadia's littermate in two shows. We are doing another fun match on Sunday, then we'll discuss further.

I have to admit that it does lend her head a cleaner look and crisper lines.

LOl Artemis... Also love muzzle whiskers! But I also love cowlicks and a full belly of hair, of which McCoy has both.

BTW... I have also wanted to mention that I really like your girls ears. That's the shape and style of the crops my boys had in the mid 70's and 80's. My current boy has a really long and narrow crop. It is pretty much perfect for a contemporary show crop. But IMO, I would much prefer if it resembled Nadia's...

She is a handsome girl.

I love that clean look and try to keep mine shaved and ears trimmed most of the time. I let the whiskers stay when we are up in the boondocks and feel they need them then.
Good luck at the shows and keep us posted!

I do think cowlicks are endearing! I would be curious about said full belly of hair, she's got a soft duvet more than anything.
Thank you for your kind words, I quite like her crop as well, there were two main cropping vets in my area for show breeders, and so for a while Quebec was seeing a diversity of crops. Her littermate's owner wanted a different style so she agreed with the breeder she'd take him to the vet that was doing more modern triangular crops. I had specifically requested a medium crop as I liked the look of some of the more vintage working crops, but still wanted the elegant shape with the curled tips. Her dam has a similar shape but in a longer format with a bit less bell if I recall correctly.

Thank you- I hope she can finish quickly enough as I am impatient to start teaching her tracking for IGP now that the snow is beginning to melt. It'll probably be a while before the club field can open again but as soon as most of the snow is gone we'll start tracking and I suspect she will make good use of her whiskers then.

I do try and keep her ears trimmed most of the time definitely prefer it, at least around the edges of the crop. I will definitely keep you guys posted! I want to try and start being a little more active on DT again in a consistent manner.

@ Artemis...

I was just a pup myself when I got my first Dobe dog. I was 21 years old and clueless. I had been around dogs my entire life, and my wife (to be) and I had a rescue girl at the time. Still...

That was 1974.

I fell into the hands of an incredible gent. He owned a one DVM clinic. His wife ran the business and they had one tech. He was a true Doberman person. He was a Doberman AKC judge and one of the best show croppers in the NW and very well respected in the Doberman community. He became my good friend and mentor. He cropped my first few boys' ears and they were almost identical to Nadia's.

Unfortunately he passed about a year or so before my first boy did ('83?) He was elderly. I still miss him.

His name was Dr James Harrison.

The last I checked, his original practice still exists and is still owned and operated by the vet that he sold it to!

Funny... dobebug never knew him as he died before she moved to Portland, but McCoy's cardiologist remembers him well.

I hated shaving Newtie's whiskers too! They do grow back quickly, thankfully!

I like Nadia's bedroom - perfect for a Dober girl. Like her sign on the doorknob and the extra collar hung for easy access on the bed post, just in case she needs a change of accessories for going out.
Very comfie.

I think the reason I didn't know Dr Harrison was because I got my first Doberman in 1959 and was living in Bothell-small town north of Seattle and I moved to Sacramento in 1963 and from there to Los Angeles in 1967 and didn't come back to the Pacific Northwest until 1994--even then I was first in Seattle until 1995 when I moved to Portland.

The main show cropper in Washington was a vet in (duh--age related and gabapentin aggravated stupidity just kicked in and I can't remember his name or the town he operated in)--later to replaced as the main Dobe and Boxer cropper his assistant for many years--Chuck Kruger DVM.
