|Yay for poodles! My favorite fun clip is the Ponydoodle, but in our case we'll probably only ever do it for Halloween!
We bought The Poodle Clipping and Grooming Book by Shirlee Kalstone. It has a whole bunch of poodle cuts and how to do them. I think about half the book has pictures of the different cuts and explains how to get them on your dog. The other half of the book has some interesting poodle grooming history, detailed instructions for beginners at grooming, a look at international cuts etc. We've found this book really helpful, and frequently consult it when grooming. My favorite fun clip in the book is the Desi cut.
Though with all the fun clips to choose from, we've pretty much decided that the retriver cut is what we like for the body. We do a more retro headpiece, with a short topknot, clipped ears, and no line over the ears, and we cut the tail to the length of the body hair.
