rebel pooch + pillow

I ran recently ran across a look called corded poodles and fell madly in love.  They aren’t born this way, it’s a technique of twisting locks of fur in a pattern, called cording.   Book on how to do it here.  Apparently it takes an expert and hours each day of pure maintenance and helping the hair grow in cords.  Have you ever seen one in person?  I lovvvvve this so much I can’t even tell you.  Our pooch, Pippi, is lucky her hair isn’t the right texture and length for me to make her a corded doodle.

I adore everything about this – the playful sass, the wildness, the unexpected.  Oh and those long, regal snouts.  I just want to face dive and bear hug every last one of them!  They look like a pack of rebel Afghan hounds, hahaha.

The closest design item I could find that captures the vibe of these precious pooches was this corded pillow.  A conservative version, of course.  This would be lovely tossed on a conservative wingback or sofa.

    Too cute. I think the pillow would be a lot less money and a lot less maintenance. But unfortunately, it would also be a lot less fun and a lot less love.

    I like the pillow, not too sold on the dog look though :)

    check out these real dogs– a Puli and a Komondor!

    We had a Puli and his hair was natural.

    My neighbor has a corded poodle! She transformed her garage into a grooming salon and spends hours each day on her dog. I like the look but would not have the time to do this. Not sure our labradoodle would go for it but fun to see!

    They are beautiful! Their cords look like a classier dreadlock!

I'd love to hear from you!
