Well today I shaved my Aussie. I don't know if he feels cooler or not, but I guarantee there will be less dirt in my house.

Then I ordered this: Power Plucker to help me with my adventures next weekend. There is such a need for it out this way - people to process chickens - but I guess the amount of work involved (even if you had your own fancy drum style plucker) still doesn't make it worth getting paid only $3 a chicken. So that's probably why I can't find anyone and probably why the meat shops here quit processing them, too.

Oh well - this should be interesting!

TG, that is horrible! And them being in different hospitals makes it worse. Can't they all be sent to the same one? Or is one a children's hospital?

CC, do you have pics of your Aussie shaved? We have thought about it with ours, but have been told their coat doesn't grow back right from multiple people. Just wondering if that's true or not.

Out, thank you for the link. I'll look into it.

I trust you, TG. Will be hard to let go of the fluff though. ;)

Why did you sop showing, if you don't mind me asking?

Oh, marriage, stepkids, etc. I spent a LOT of time training and going etc.. Was the computer person at the shows.. it was time consuming. We were an agility ckub, but also Aussie, so we had conformation shows also.. it was a fun time. Went to Nationals in 2000 ... great stuff!

This one's hair grows back JUST fine - I'll only have to shave him once - he will be back to full and fluffy by September.

Here he is - sorry so blurry - my camera lens was fogging up as soon as I took it outside.

Texasgal thanks for the pics of Samtry on my "other" thread. Feel free to post any pictures you find of my new acquisition.
I am not feeling the facebook thing yall. Too many conversations and not all are easy to follow. Half the **** comments are hidden. Too much work for me. I will continue to show up to support it but ........
I also dont want to ruin the camraderie we have here and the ability to show all the other forum members that we Texans have the best longest running thread on this forum. Shalom

I can take you off the group on facebook if you want. There is also a way for you to "hide" the feed so you can come in if you want, but it won't flood your wall with stuff. I was afraid it would be roo much .... one more thing you and DH can have in common!
