Ok so pliers and a matt breaker are going in my car now.

My fingers are sore today from pulling those out of her coat. I bet she had 30+ and she's such a small dog....

If you don't have Cowboy Magic handy, baby oil gel is a good substitute. with the horses, I eventually just switched to the gel, but I love the smell of Cowboy Magic.
