All about fur

Yatzies fur is now up to 13 cm long! I have never left it growing this long before, so it is a little experiment. The fur ends turn more and more into brown. They form beautiful curls, but under the surface... MATS!!!!! Yatzie has the silky kind of Barbet fur, not woolly, and it does not normally form mats. But now, especially on her neck blow the ears and by her hips, big areas of mats are forming. Today I spent 2 hours combing through just four areas of mats! I use the front end of a comb to entangle them little by little. The result - a big heap of fur and a very woolly Yatzie. Yes, after combing through the mats the fur gets a woolly feel and look. In a few weeks I have an appointment to groom her, I am looking forward to it because these mats are hard work!
