This was my project for today. The woman who usually grooms our dog has been sick (fortunately on the mend) and Lois was starting to look a little shaggy. So I decided to do it myself. It is all done by hand, first stripping the undercoat with a special instrument, then brushing then combing her. Finally she gets a bath. I had to bathe the little one (Nikki) so she would not feel left out. The whole process takes about 90 minutes because I gave her a few breaks. The amount of fur that I combed out was amazing.
