She had gotten quite matted and long, so I cut a bunch of the coat away before the bath, which is where you see her in the top picture. All those clumpy curls are mats.
In the bath I gently worked the shampoo through all the tangles, and brushed the cream rinse through to continue to loosen the works.
By working the mats a little bit at a time the whole way through, I was able to save a nice length and give Abby a really cute style.
Puppy has always been good at helping. Sometimes it is sweet and nice, like helping with Abby, sometimes I could live with a little less of his 'help'!
All his helping is tiresome work though, so what does a 'Puppy'/Groomer's helper do when he gets sleepy?
