Yep, other half wears shorts to do the job ...
she has a massively thick protective undercoat which mats up like felt if not kept an eye on. Especially as she loves to swim in the sea..
We tried clipping her for summer a couple of years running since we’ve been here in Spain but she always got a skin infection. The vet has told us that there are many breeds of dog that should never be clipped at all as the double layered coat is protection against heat as well as the cold....which was something I didn’t know. So many people here clip their dogs .. so we stopped .
Now she’s just getting fluffier .....

Grooming every 3 days was our Moto once upon a time, Motley gets done now when he looks a bit tatty , but it doesn't take long to straighten him out. Up on the bench and 5 mins later he's done.  I don't need to hoover as often anymore either. 

Talking dog, when we were in the town last week a dog was just coming out of a door with its owner, dog barked at Motley ( who just gave it a look) owner grabbed the dog by the ear and twisted it, I said "shall I do that to your ear and see how you like it" How cruel some people can be to an animal they are supposed to love. It was obvious she had no control over the dog because even though it was only Motley size it had a wide harness that almost covered the dog.

It’s a part of Spain I don’t like, loads of people have pets and love them very much, but there is a huge amount who are needlessly and horrendously cruel.
Plus some seem to use dogs as accessories...
I’m always telling people off... when I see it happening 🤬🤬

One of the many reasons I love Rhodesian Ridgebacks is that they are easy to keep clean. Not only do they have very short coats, their ‘under-carriages’ are a long way off the floor. - They have paws like saucers, but at least you can wipe them off when they come indoors!

We have had eight Ridgebacks over the years. - Always two at a time. When our first one died we somehow acquired a Golden Retriever. - He lived until he was fifteen and three months.....so a good age for such a big dog. (He was huge for a Retriever). Everybody LOVED Charlie. He was the worlds friendliest dog.......but made more mess than all the Ridgebacks put together! He moulted constantly, was always wet......would like in the mud if there wasn’t a proper puddle......and I could have knitted enough sweaters for an expedition to the Artic with his hair! We miss him as much as the Ridgebacks though! I did however learn a lesson. - Never get a long haired dog again!

Our cat is medium haired. - Don’t believe people when they say cats don’t moult much! 🙄

Ellie may have short legs and get her tummy pretty dirty sometimes, but she is easy to pick up and dump in the spare bath for a quick warm shower.

I sometimes think that half of Devon has been redistributed down my bathroom plug'ole!

Small dogs rule, yeah.

We had four small dogs in our kitchen at breakfast time yesterday. Katherine and James were here with Corrie and Oscar, then our niece arrived with Nellie, (Bedlington x cocker), and Womble, (Yorkie x 57.....whom Katherine claims looks like a meerkat!). Oscar wasn’t impressed with all the ‘silly girls’ so Katherine shoved all four dogs out the garden......to be boisterous out there. - The mill leat through the garden was too tempting! We had plenty of wet paws.

The problem with small dogs is that I keep stepping on them! 😳
