|Bea's "before" photo|
This past Saturday was Bea's turn at the spa. Bea is Mudflap's sister. She came to us last fall and she has never had anything done to her fur. We had to wait until warm weather to give her a new look.
She is mostly Komondor with some Great Pyrenees mixed in. It is hard to tell from this picture, but Bea has what Clay calls "country dreadlocks." This is what the Komodors fur is supposed to do. The problem is that she is like a walking biohazard with those "stinking dreads." It is quite an unpleasant experience to ride in the car with her.
It was so surprised when I shaved her. Under all of those nasty dreads was beautiful clean white fur! It came off in mostly one big piece like a rug. I could have just laid it in the chicken pen and the predators would have thought there was a dog lying in there. Instead I tore it apart and put the dreads all around the pen.
You will be quite surprised to see the look that Bea went for. She wanted something different than Chloe. Something that was "South African".....
She was not cooperative for a photo. She was more interested in playing. You can still get the general idea.
