Last year was not like that. It was the coldest summer, even by our standards, and the dogs held on to their coats. I was still grooming out old coats in November and the overall weight of groomed out dog hair was down by four kilograms. It will be interesting to see how this year's total weight compares.
We thought it would be fun to see who in the kennel blows the most fur so Jennifer ran up string bags. Each dog has a bag with their name on it to collect what fur is brushed out every time I groom them.
The competition is on.
