Nice cool day for them. I wasn't as impressed. :laughing: I've turned the furnace on in the house, poor Bentley was lying on the grate thinking he'd be getting some air conditioning, when heat came out, he jumped up and barked at it. :laughing:

Those boys sure are beautiful (as is your yard) :lovestruck:

Maybe you could close the air from one vent and fill it with ice cubes instead :laughing: That would sure confuse them :D On second though, maybe onster's idea is better :thumbs up

I'm sure they'll be getting more than enough ice and snow outside in the months to come thank you very much. :laughing: They've cottoned on to the heat from the vents now, so both of them lie against the doors now. The best weatherstrip I've ever had. :laughing:

Hard to tell really, DH rakes them and lots of undercoat comes out, but not a lot of it around the house. Spring is a little worse for the undercoat coming out, then you can pet them and pull a bunch of it out.

Nothing better to get that undercoat out with. It would be good for your goldens I would think.

I just LOVE the feel of a Keeshond's coat!They are way less of a PITA shedder than most dogs in my opinion because the hair is like clumps of soft cotton!I love your boys!:cloud9:

They always looks so regal! :flirt:

I can certainly understand why they much prefer the cool air than the hot! :D And why winter might very well be their favorite season!

DH does a great job with the rake! They always look so well-groomed. :thumbs up

"Floofy" is a great word to describe them, krdahmer!

I'm sure all that hair is bothersome for them in the summer. Have you ever gotten them 'summer cuts' ? I bet they have a ball in the snow!

Not supposed to cut these guys to beat the heat, just like any double coated dog.
I don't know how you could in good concience keep these dogs in a hot climate though. They do love the cold so.

The Boys look fabulous :lovestruck: :lovestruck:

Do they pose for you as soon as they see the camera? They're so good at it :cloud9:

The double coat actually insulates them in the summer as well so they don't feel the heat as much as you may think they do. No double coated dog should be cut or shaved it ruins the insulation & the coat if it grows back will not come in properly.
