    Sorry, the other post isnt working now, at least I cant see the pictures. I wanted you to look. I wanted to show you what I'm up agaisnt with this girl. Hopefully this time I wont lose my pictures!
    Her morning starts in the pool, ends with a dip. She loves the pool so she's always wet. Then rolls in the grass, dirt.....just cant stay clean.

    This one I didnt spend alot of time brushing her. Her rump needed brushed out real good. Because of being in the pool so much her butt is hard to keep nice looking.

    Are these good enough for you to tell if I'm doing ok with her grooming, any tips. The backside is tough because of her playing in the pool so much. The fur on the hips wont go pretty, they never have a chance too. As you can see in my signature, she has to have her face washed often, she's always going around with a dirty nose. Please tell me if you can tell just by looking that I'm doing something wrong.

    Becca,
    She is beautiful! You are doing a great job. The only thing is, are you sure you are getting the matts out all the way or are you just brushing over the top? If you are getting them out all the way, then that's great!
    Precious is half-Chow, and she has those same britches! LOL Very hard to keep up and maintain, but once you have them brushed out, it looks so good.

    I'm sure the mats are all out around the head....the back half, I have a heck of a time with. She spends so much time in the pool and rolling around, I have to get her at just the right time to do the bottom. I get it looking nice, she goes out and that's the end of that. I'll make sure to try to get down farther with the back half. Hey, I want you to see your competition someday. lol.
