Samoyed Maintenance Trim

The Samoyed is a double–coated breed that requires extensive coat care to keep them in good shape.

There I was again, on my knees, bent over my bathtub, trying to give my two uncooperative Cockapoos, Molly and Oscar a bath. I have two towels under my knees to cushion them from the hard tile floor.
