Yes, the fur harvest has begun! I mentioned that Thor had a bath, but I don’t think I said that his staples are out, which is why he was able to have said bath! He is quite disgusted with me right now, and feeling very put-upon. I was required to post a status on Facebook reflecting his ire and telling all his fur-friends how horrible a mom I am for subjecting him to the indignity of a bath and groom. The picture you see is after a three hour session with the rake. I have plenty of material to spin right now! And undoubtedly, Thor will be generous enough to give me more when I need it!
Three hours is an average session with Thor, meaning it’s all either one of us can stand! He hates being groomed, and after three hours sitting on the floor, I can barely move, and it takes me a minute or two to get up again. But he looks beautiful, despite the big bald spot where he was shaved for his staples, and I have no doubt that he is cooler now!
