You have to do all of him like that, or just the sweet, wise, wrinkly forehead?

Nah, the brush is mostly for a stubborn spot on his tail. But he does like it anywhere though - this was just for the picture

The problem is, when I'm brushing the Pack, I'd need an extra two hands for the camera! Hmmmm... Maybe I can bribe the hubby into manning the shutter for a change.... I nice apple pie might do the trick!

You'll have to hurry--they don't last very long around here!

I was determined to get a picture of Zeus for this month's photo contest. After realizing that there was no way I could take pictures of myself brushing him, I was hoping that he might give me some response if I put the brush on the floor (he really does not like being brushed). After many tries, this is what I ended up with... I think that this was his way of telling me to stop taking pictures.. sorry for the lack of brushing in this photo...

it doesn't say that "you actually" have to be brushing
maybe just proof that you did or in the process ?? it's just a tad hard when one doesn't have a second pair of hands



He isn't being shaved just brushed and combed

FionaBeth, Zeus's expression is just too funny! I take it he's not a big fan of photo shoots?

breeze, I love the comb stuck in Archer's fur!! Nice touch!!

That is sooo funny, Marko, but the cat looks happy. I called in to a friend's place today just as she was drying her Shih Tzu after bathing her, so I got the job of blow drying her while Di looked for a brush. I ended up doing the lot with my fingers seeing the brushes had been put in a safe place(sigh, we all have them). That, plus this thread, has inspired me, I shall groom a sheltie for a photo session.

So Marko, do you know anybody with a spinning wheel and loom? We could save our dog hair (Breeze would be a BIG contributor) and send it to you so you could make coats for your kitties! Actually a dog hair coat may give a cat a real complex huh!! I used to mail my cat's hair (persian cross) out to a friend in Montreal who would spin it and used a loom to make fabric and clothes.

I usually have one of those orange net bags oranges are sold in, hanging from our fig tree, full of sheltie hair for the birds. Was fun to watch the crows come and stand on my old pony mare's back in spring too, plucking beakfuls of her winter coat for their nests. Still haven't got around to grooming that sheltie yet, Marko. Too busy revelling in my first days of having super fast Satellite instead of dead slow dial up.

I'm still working on bribing hubby into taking pics.... No luck yet Not even for an apple pie. He's scared he'll drop my camera and I'll never speak to him again! (Seriously, that's the excuse he gave )

That sounds exactly the same as my husband. So, it's just Toby, who looks like a little kid saying "Are we finished YET?" They're not happy until we are, so they can have their titbit. Marko, can we do multiple entries? That might encourage me to groom more of them. Getting the grooming table set up is the hard part, it's really heavy.

I think you can submit multiple pics for each dog if you want to, GF! Please do! Toby is a cutie!! And very handsome all brushed out, I might add!
