If it's looking good, I wouldn't clip. That natural lustre is really hard to get back when you clip, especially so soon to the show. I'd definitely make sure she's trimmed up, whiskers, jowl hair, belly hair, etc. but I'd personally leave the coat alone. Body clipping tends to create a very dull and different shade of color, and nothing is more eye catching then the brilliant shine on a natural coat.
But that's my opinion, I don't show, but I'd think a judge would prefer a neat turn out with natural shine to a dull looking buzzed coat?
I hope God tells her to smash her computer with a sledgehammer.
