Default So long hairy legs and clothing...

hahahaha

Anyway. I like the hair on their legs to stay long, I put Tuck in his little Thor T-shirt the other day (which was a hit btw) and when I took it off that evening he had huge matts around the bends of his little legs-in the area the sleeves of the shirt covered. They were so huge I had to chop them out. So, if one looks very closely now they can see some funny looking spottage on his legs

Anyway to avoid this?

I would love to dress Ben, but even a harness gives us a grooming nightmare. So what did I do, bought another leash and harness last night. I think he has at least 6 of them now and I carry him, rather then risk his hair getting tangled, lol. I think I should be buying slings and purses instead of harnesses but the new elf BB was too tempting for me so I ordered it.

It is very hard to keep hair long and dress them. Zoe doesn't walk too much outside and gets carried around everywhere. Her hair is very long but requires constant careful brushing everyday so it stays knot free, even then its a challenge. I dress her when we go out but again she doesn't do a whole lot of walking. It is hard.

Oh my, I thought you had my number. Good grief, when it is cold I absolutely hate shaving my hairy legs.

But as to the dogs...I thought I could brush MiMi out in a short time, give her a bath and trim her long hair....yeah right, I am just taking a break from brushing...I'll tell you more after three or four hours.

Tyler's in the town and country and though his legs are long, they don't seem to tangle much at all. I just brush them every day and make sure to get every knot out if there are any. I also tend to pull his hair down when the vest goes down so it's not knotted up there.

Knock on wood, Leila doesn't really get tangles much. Is it only because of puppy hair and I have something to not look forward to?

So I normally clip just his body(I think its sort of town and country?), I'm trying to grow out his top not and I love his legs long. Does this mean I have to choose? Or do I just get clothes with no sleeves? Or, do I just have to check the hair a couple times a day? Or... what should I do?

He's so pretty with his long hair, I love it.
