about a month ago Kia had her blow , I spent hours hand blowing her coat . I find that I really enjoy it and therapeutic in the same time :)lol::lol:) , now is Brewsters time . Both dogs had to put it with me , BUT NOW my husband pushes me away and dose not let me enjoy my self , I am quite cross with him from that respect. I want my hobby back and he can find something else to do ...

:D

do u like spending time to hand blow the coat of your dogs? Or is just me and the OH being strange people ?:D

May be I have read this wrong but I assumed you meant hand stripping the coat?? I'm afraid I cheat and use a Coat King. It's all over and done in the blink of an eye :D. I would probably enjoy doing it by hand but have rubbish tendons and would probably end up with repetitive strain injury or similar :lol:

I used to work in a grooming parlour and I used to be more relaxed than the dogs :) Even go into a hypnotic daze sometimes lol.

hand striping yeah thats the word combination ...
it is really relaxing , believe me it comes in chunks and am tempted to keep all that wool and do something with it . I know sounds terrible but I love to knit and think how warm a hat can be , akita hat in the long wet cold english winters hehehe ... ( nearly said summers , but I love them , more then damn romanian summers with all that 40 + C day sand weeks at the time)

after flufffluff39 posts nope , lol

kia , tolerates me (she knows she has not choice , as long as she keeps her mum busy and happy lol) brewster loves the most of it , bless his heart I really dont think he had so much attention in his life ( he is a rescue boy , not an easy life before he come to us )

I have seen dog fur being used in knitting on the tv. She groomed the undercoat then spun it and made little things like hats n gloves :)

See that would be as therapeutic as grooming the fur out of the dogs!!! Sitting spinning and then knitting. That sounds really calming :)
