its the opposite for me! for some reason he always knows when a show is coming up and even a 2 hour bath with mulitiple shampoos doesn't get all the grim out! went to a show last week after doing the regular 2 hour bath which afterward made him look good, I get to the show and realize that he is actually really dirty still *he did spend the night in the stall with a full body sleazy on! I managed with a few baby wipes to get most of it up but I still wonder how he manages it!

If you want to help shed them out quickly, let them roll in a nice gooey mud puddle and plaster themselves with it. Leave it be and let it dry completely. Then take it off using long strokes with a shedding blade, one of the single long flexible blades with a handle on each end and little teeth all along one edge.

As that mud comes away, it will bring a whole bunch of those fuzzies with it.
