and I don't play one on TV. I've mentioned before that Mr. B has copious amounts of coat. Today, as temps soared into the upper 70s, I decided it was time to remedy that. I've been planning this for a week. I bought a Mars Coat King and everything. What, you ask, is a Mars Coat King. It is a grooming tool that essentially strips out excess undercoat, without damaging the top coat. The one I bought has 23 blades to do this. It is not for the faint of heart or unsteady of hand.
So we popped Mr. B up on the table - a place he does not enjoy being - and I set to work. Below are Before and After photos. It's hard to see a big difference in those photos but, believe me, I stripped 2-3 puppies-worth of hair out of the boy. I went a little overboard at the top of his tail and he is now lacking undercoat there but, overall, I was really pleased with how he turned out.
Now that I have this little grooming adventure under my belt, I am planning something special and WILD for the National. Nope, not going to tell you what it is. You'll just have to wait for the photos.
