Bunny at 6 months

When we returned we noticed a big change in Bunny. She went from five to six months of age, and had a whole month's growth of hair on her face, feet and tail...making her unrecognizable as the former Bunny! It was cute, but in my opinion, not a great look for her.
So yesterday she had a makeover...That is more like it!
She grew quite a bit, and is now about 20 inches at the shoulder and is eating four cups of food a day, so her appetite is much improved. She still doesn't go upstairs, so I tried teaching her yesterday. She had her nails dug in, and wasn't impressed. When upstairs, she could see the reflection in the mirror of the dogs down below and didn't quite know what to think! She was growling...and if she had could her hackles would have been raised! I went stair by stair with her back downstairs and she was relieved to be in familiar territory. She hasn't been upstairs since.

I dare say Bunny looks much better after the makeover for sure. Totally a different dog! I'm sure the girls are happy to have you and Pete back at home. :)

Hi there, poodles are quite funny, you can have two completly different dogs. One with the hair all over and when you do a make over a completly new dog.
I have a friend that owns a standard poodle and it is amazing to see the before and after.
Hope to see nices pic from Bunny soon :)
You know that i love Bunny's :):)

Whoa! Bunny the Punk to Bunny the Beauty Queen! You'll have to try a red carpet on the stairs and see if it improves her impression. It's always interesting to see how different dogs deal with stairs. My boys don't give them a second thought in terms of climb or not, but sometimes Phoenix makes a bad choice to consider a staircase a big broad jump going up, which doesn't always work out as well as he'd planned. You might try teaching her to walk through a ladder first so she can find her feet!

She looks much better now, and because she has tear staining, it is much better when her face is shaved.

Our stairs are very treacherous...they are carpeted, but there is no runner. Also there is no inside railing (I know, a real hazard). So, I haven't tried until now to teach her. She wasn't impressed, and will still wait for me on the mat down below...sometimes she gets a sock or something to occupy herself while I'm at the computer!
