Doggy cuteness

Tilly had her first trip to the groomer today at the age of 6 1/2!
Being a Border Terrier she has a coat that needs hand stripping. I usually do it but I really don't do a great job. This visit has been long overdue!
She looks so cute! I can see the gorgeous red in her coat again :) And who could resist those beautiful brown eyes??

She's cute :D but - what does hand stripping mean? Because it sounds painful :lol: :-O

lol - not painful if it's done correctly. It's just removing dead hair from the coat as it doesn't fall out properly itself. Borders were bred to be "earth dogs" - going to ground in the hunt and the shedding coat would have been stripped by trees and tunnels etc. Tilly has a lazy life with very few tunnels so the excess coat needs to come out from time to time.
