So I had to do his body with a #10 blade, which is a little shorter than the shortest blade I usually do on a shave, but his fur was dense enough to handle it.
Since his Mom likes his body shaved and his head and tail long, I suggested having this cute teddy bear style muzzle and she said okay. She looved it!
Mao's Mom had trimmed a little eyebrow fringe over his eyes, and I suggested growing that out so that the whole thing just goes into the topknot cleanly. So I put two elastics in over his eyes to gather the short hair and then did the topknot.
I hope I get to continue grooming Mao, he's so cute and fun to do! Though I know his Mom likes to groom him too :)
