OH seeing the pics of Shama wet and dry now! My heart is a puddle at my feet. She is SO adorable! Wet or dry, pre or post bath.
She looks like such a little doll and I bet she is. I agree with Tux's can we come stay with you too that trellis looks delicious and the little girl at the bottom is even better! You may have said but how much does she weigh? She looks tiny in her pics Sophie is 9.2 but is pretty tall although people who see her in pics only and then in person ALWAYS...every time....first thing they say is they can't believe how small she is. Must be since I take most photos of her up close and at eye level so she looks bigger.
Karen very interesting that Pixel's coat has been easier to manage for you too lately! I hope it stays that way! But I'm thinking maybe it's the time of the year, between coat changes maybe this is the easiest time for everyone? or their age? Or the dry weather? Or a miracle???
Oh man am I glad I don't have those turkeys. Sophie would eat the poop for sure and I'd have one sad sick puppy on my hands! Bad enough when the birds fly overhead and poop.
I can't believe you do three in two hours. Part of my time for Sophie is filled with the brushing and getting every little knot out so it doesn't get hung up in the clippers. But that hasn't been as big of a problem lately. Also includes lots of trimming. So since I won't be doing that this time will be interesting next bath to see how long it will take. Surely if you can do three in two, I can do one in one!
Yes, clipping Pixel is AT LEAST a couple of hours, since I'm not very good (or fast) at it, and don't want to make horrible mistakes! LOL! So if I did that with every bath, it would take CONSIDERABLY longer!!! But just a bath and blow dry on Pixel is well under 1/2 hour. I don't worry about getting her head or legs completely dry... She'll just go out and get them wet agaiN! I just get her body dry so she isn't cold.
Panda I dry completely, Kodi HATES his face being dried, so on him, I dry his body and legs, and get the majority of moisture out of his ears, then let his face dry naturally. He has the most coat, so he takes the longest anyway.
Last night I bathed all three, and did Kodi and Panda's nails, and blow dried ALL of them only body and legs, because it was late. I got them all done in well under 2 hours. No trimming at all, though.
