Aren't those the same things as thinning shears? I have a couple pairs of those but I think the hair on the right ear is too short to even take those to the hair now.

Yes, haha, the names are kind of like soda and pop... what people call them depends on where you're at I suppose. But yeah... there has to be hair there to blend!

Is the hair long enough to just blend out with a regular razor? As long as you brush through and don't go over one spot to many times, it should blend pretty easily.

I am so appreciating my smooth coated dogs right now. I adore fringe but I don't think I would ever want to deal with things that look like THAT!

Glad Mia is ok and didn't get hurt by them but total bummer having to cut them out. I might sleep on it and wait till morning till you even it up, things always seem to look better in the morning. Like bad bang trims

EEEK NO! Shoot, I wish I would have seen this earlier!

If this ever happens again, you don't have to cut them out. Carefully crush the burrs with a set of needlenose pliers, and then they will brush out easily.

It wouldn't have mattered -- they were already cut when the thread was made. And considering Mia was screaming and they were at the park, unless Laurelin had a pliers on hand...

Yeah I had to make do while we were there with some plain scissors I had (not even dog scissors). She was screeching and I wasn't going to keep her that uncomfortable to drive all the way back home (plus not get to go to the park).

For future reference, how do you get the burrs out with the pliers? I'm having a hard time visualizing this. They were matted in so bad and completely wrapped in fringe.

Here is Miss NoFringe now.

I'm trying not to at her. I think a salvage job is going to happen tomorrow. Just cut them down evenly. I still am doing a double take every time I see her.

I think those burrs could have stuck into a fairly smooth (stock type) coat too but probably could be brushed out pretty easy.

They don't stick to either Kim or Webster. They will knock them loose but the burrs just fall to the ground. Occasionally Kim will have one ride for a couple feet but then it just falls on its own.
