I know that not everyone loves the holidays and I do understand why. Malls are busy, parking lots are full, everyone is rushing and Holiday cheer is fully in your face as of Nov. 1. However, I must confess I do still love it! The holidays are definitely in the air and it makes it seem a little cheerier. I do love singing Christmas carols, too and I love grooming at Christmas! Hopefully everyone is being good and taking care of their pet’s coats! Growing out doesn’t mean doing nothing – you have to brush and comb! My recommendation is to get a handscissor (longer cut) now and then a bath and tidy at Christmas or vice versa depending on how long the coat is.
