Well, matted fur is another issue altogether. At that point you would need to weigh the pros and cons of shaving the dog vs causing them a lot of pain to remove the mats – shaving isn’t nice, but it could be nicer than mat removal!
Never shave a double-coated dog like a Farley! Shepherds, golden retrievers, huskies etc. should never be shaved. They naturally regulate their body temperature. When you shave their fur, they get too hot and too cold, and their fur will never grow back quite the same.
Funny you should say that. Rosette is how I started signing my poems in middle school.
I agree, but I’m not a “kid person” to begin with.
Oscar Ramirez! VERY difficult for me to say!
Haha, you’ve found me in the wild! :P Thank you for your support.
Hey, I totally get speech impediments. I couldn’t pronounce several letters as a kid, including the letter “R”. While my real name isn’t Rosette, my name DOES have an “R” in it. This meant that I couldn’t say my own name, at least not understandably. I hated introducing myself to people, and I wished to God my parents had named me something easy to say. This problem persisted well past age 8. Even as an adult, I still have a slight speech impediment. Every time I think I can speak well, something embarrassing happens – just the other day, I tried to say “Arnold Palmer iced tea”, and just gave up after a few tries. I just can’t do it.
All that being said, Shannon is deliberately using the wrong words. Maybe “screw” is a tough word for her, in which case she would have said “schreww” or some other gibberish. But she clearly said “school”, which sounds nothing like screw.
Boopsie is taking this in stride. I wonder if similar things have happened before?
My mother would have killed me… don’t push it, Mike!
The only acceptable cat call!
