So heres me at the end of last winter about mid September in my full "blown" winter coat. We'll call this my "Hairy Yak" look .
Ah, the hand stripping begins. Mum pulls my top coat out by hand, little bit by little bit so it doesn't hurt. She does it in front of tv, and takes about a month. What about my pride? This is what we call the "mange" look. Am I a good model or what...
The "sideburns" look.
"Nanook of the North in Ugg Boots" look. Seriously you don't think you are taking me out on the street looking like this do you. Enough is enough!!!!!
Finally - TO THE RESCUE!!!. Heres me at Angels Dog & Cat Grooming Parlour in Massey. Matilda competed in the Groomalong Competition in Canterbury this year with 50 other contestants and came 1st in the Terrier Group with an Airedale and 3rd with a Border Terrier in the hand stripping so she is more than competent to rescue me from Mums attempts. Thank goodness - heres me telling her all my woes. http://www.masseypets.co.nz/
