Cracker's fur grows so fast and he is so heat sensitive, but once again the $148 professional clippers barely made a dent with the guides on, so for the third time I scalped him with the naked clipper...he cooperated wonderfully this time. Plus this time I did a better job of keeping it more even. Amazing how much fur came off. He is very heat sensitive so I think I will do this every 6 weeks or so. The first two times he struggled the whole time to get away...this time he calmly laid down, first on his belly, then on his back...I bet it took little more than 5 minutes. Mary Jo was right.....$148 for professional clippers as the groomer wanted $90 per hair cut!
I dump the fur in compost barrels as a nitrogen source.
