We'll be having our Chow sheared for the summer soon, and I thought about asking the groomer to return the hair to me. However, we've been very lax about keeping him brushed this winter
, and since he's spent most of his time outdoors ('cept for night when he comes in to guard his humans), his hair is matted and not so pretty right now.
PS-Lu, what a neat worthwhile project, and the dogs in your pics are adorable.
And, Kemp, that dog is one of the most beautiful that I've ever seen!
