The breed is a favorite in my family, and a few years ago I drove my Grandma to Hutchinson to get a couple of puppies. One was for my aunt in Oklahoma and the other my Grandma kept. She named her Dutchess and although she was supposed to be purebred, she looks a little different from Samson.
Her coat is much, much thicker, with big, black spots. She doesn't shed well like he did and my 88 year-old Grandmother can't take care of her coat like it needs, so I set out this spring to shave her.
This ought to be interesting....
I had my horse clippers with the largest blade I could buy, a couple of cans of blade coolant, some showsheen for the knots, her brush, a leadrope to hang onto her with and lots of plastic bags for the hair.
I was out there for over three hours! Dutchess was such a good "little" puppy!
