Few things strike fear in the heart of show poodle owners more so than the dreaded coat change. That wonderful pit stop on the way to poodle maturity that consists of mats and knots that suddenly appear out of thin air.
Imagine sitting in front of the tv, comb in one hand, conditioning spray in the other, coming through poodles coat. Picking at knots behind the ears, on the chest, the back of the neck, etc., etc., etc. You spend an hour, and can finally get the comb all the way through his lovely silver locks. He stands up, shakes, and voila! The knots are back! EEK!
You would think we would have learned from the first time we went through this. But, no. We decided to do it again...WHEEEEEEE
So, last week, I spent 3 days coming through Hemi, got all the knots out and gave him a bath. Today, approximately a week later, his knots are back, bigger than ever!
So, I'm off to pick at knots. Again!
