Finally looking like little schnauzers, and not fuzz balls!

    They got their first haircuts! Ok, so it's not a pro job, I did them myself, so you will have to forgive any mistakes you see! This only 3 of the 5, I don't have the other two done, my clippers are giving out on me.

    It's been so cold, rainy, and yuck, and we finally had a nice day (well it was windy, but atleast I didn't need a jacket and the sun was out), so I figured I better take advantage and get some pics!
    This is the boy, Jonas, he's so sweet, he's the biggest and the mellowest. More reserved then the others, just likes to sit back and see what's happening.
    And giving the head tilt,

    And Marly, she's the biggest girl, my dad is supposed to be taking her, but I think he's been having second thoughts and might keep Josey instead, he say's she likes him better, but I think they all just have different ways about them, she's alittle more like her brother, Josey is very affectionate, thinks everyone needs a good face washing!

    And those two together,
    With Teddy,
    Their behinds, look at Marly's white tipped tail!

    And lastly little Josey, she and Bethanie are the smallest, and probably the most overly affectionate! Although Tina gives them a run for their money, she's quite the lover to!
    Most the pics I got of this girl are from behind, she kept hearing or seeing things that she just had to check out!
    Ok, here are a few from the front!

    I will have to get pics of the other two after they are finished. These guys were sooo good I couldn't believe it! I told mom she should trade her two in and keep the pups (kidding of course)! But they were just so good, some easier then others, Jonas and Marly were by far the easiest and I did them w/out any help, Marly especially fell asleep on me and was like a rag doll, I could have shaved her bald if I'd wanted to and she wouldn't care! They didn't care to much for the baths, but they tolerated it pretty good, and were even great about thier nails being done!

    Wow, you did a great job! [​IMG] After my last attempt with our scottie and westie my SO banned me forever from the clippers. [​IMG]

    Those have to be the prettiest schnauzers I've ever seen. I've only seen salt and pepper or black ones around here . . . I much prefer the coloring of yours. Is that a Chinese crested I see in the back of one pic?

    The pups look great! I would have a hard time giving any of them up! That one picture has a BIG dog leg in it! He/She must be nice, cause the puppy is right on its heals![​IMG]

    Oh wow they look so good! Are any of them #3 from the last set of pics? I don't see that marking on her head so I'm thinking not.. unless it's Josey. Man I wish I could get one of these pups! You really did a good job on them, that first schnauzer cut makes them look so much older. [​IMG]

    Beautiful dogs! I LOVE the pattern on them. I don't think I've ever seen a schnauzer in those colors!

    Looks like you did a wonderful job giving them a hair cut. I always thought it looked fun to shave off all that hair! Of course, if I was to get ahold of a pair of dog clippers I'd probably be evil and give my dog a funny hair cut! [​IMG]

    I love the color too, that is why I asked. I have never seen parti-colored Schnauzers before.
