I am. It will be small, but BIG!!!

Willow or Dianne,  question for you. I know you only have cats not dogs but thought maybe you'd have a suggestion.  My dog, a collie, got into burdocks. I cut all of them out of her hair but her tail is still full of them. Someone I know who owns horses says she rubs baby oil in the horses tails and then combs it out with a wide toothed comb.

Well I have a friend that uses spray in detangler like you would use on little kids.

Swears by it. He has a collie & Sampson's fur is always soft & shiney, and the dog likes to raom the woods.

Dianne, thanks. I didn't even think of that. We've got detangler in the house that I use for my boyfriends daughters hair. I'll try it.

My dog doesn't get off leash much. He's part bloodhound & he would be gone if he caught a good scent. lol

Good morning ladies & Happy Red Friday! 49 and raining right now. Supposed to clear up and get up to 68. Have my Dr's appt this a.m. and an errand to run on the way home. Will do laundry tomorrow. Fun, fun, fun, big smiles, lol.

Morning Robert! It a cold rainy 41 here, only going to 44. My schedule got changed so I'm working tomorrow night and not tonight. So I have the whole day free with nothing planned. Going to go more work on readying the house for Erik and Wakana.

hello Willow! glad you have the day and night off. What exactly are you doing to prep the house for Erik and Wakanas homecoming?


Ummmm page turn?

Took a minute for your post to show. I was using his bedroom for storage. Got to find places for stuff. Also need to clean the floors, and generally get the house clean and organized. I also need a sunny day off to make a dunk run.

Ahhh, okay now I gotcha. Ill be doing the cleaning in November to prep for Seans homecoming in December. Have to move a lot of stuff from the two bedrooms up into the attic. And probably have the master bedrooms carpet professionally cleaned.
