(anyone else’s three-year-old love “The Hair Book”?)
Ike is blowing coat and it’s a sight to behold. Madeline’s been raking his coat out every day this week, in preparation for showing him in the 4-H dog show at the county fair next month. Olivia and I each took a turn at raking today as well.
Some people spin Pyr hair, I’ve heard. By the time he’s done with this you could make quite a sweater.
Madeline and Ike had their first training class this week. Ike did really well, considering he’s never really been around other dogs. He’s definitely the largest dog in the class, although I think her club-mate’s Saint Bernard weighs more. It will be interesting to see her try the agility exercises with him, especially stuffing him through a tunnel!
