Will I really go to hell if I shave my samoyed? - Page 2

Hi Mamas,

Well, we're about 3/4 of the way to having a groomed dog! DH spent a couple of hours one day on her haunches, the next day we both worked on her underbelly and some more time on her haunches. The next day she found some poop to roll in (where I haven't a clue!) so dh washed her very thoroughly and did some more brushing out while she was still wet. Then I blow dried her a bit (until she looked like she really might come kill me in my sleep if I didn't leave her alone for a while). Meanwhile we have been picking out the clumps and tufts of undercoat that have been rising to the surface. Tonight we'll do another, possibly final, session with the brush and modified letter opener. She already looks like a normal (and much slighter) dog and I think even she is appreciating the benefits of relative cleanliness as now when we scratch her butt she can actually feel it! And really, aside from her coyote-like yips and screams she makes through the muzzle while she's being brushed, she hasn't minded the process nearly as much as we'd expected.
