Minor grooming day today. Dremelled his nails and scissored the tulips around his eyes to make him look like a Schnauzer again. He’s officially a teenager – got a ton of brown undercoat showing through on his legs and The Blizzard has arrived – white hairs showing up in his jacket. Both will be gone in six months or as late as a year.
Reminds me of a pup I sold to someone who wanted to show. When The Blizzard arrived, she called me, all hysterical. I told her it was no big deal, after a stripping or two they’d be totally gone. So she stripped out her 5-mo puppy and guess what – the new coat had A LOT more white hairs! It took a lot of effort to calm her down!
I really enjoyed watching him fall asleep on the grooming table while I did his nails. Good puppy!
