This is the first real snow for Sam 15 inches. he is getting snow balls stuck in his fur. The feet and feathers I can't easy pull them out just have them melt on my couch? any suggestions?

I put Maeve in the bathtub and run warm water over her feet with the handheld shower - the snowballs melt away quickly. She's a standard sized poodle mix and the snow really sticks to her. The blow dryer is way to slow.

I have been using a towel followed by a cheapo plastic de-tangling brush. That knocks the majority of the clumps off, and thawing takes care of the rest.

Selkie was having trouble with ice/snow balls between his toes. I have gotten them under control with some fur trimming and liberal application of Bag Balm.

This is Selkie after a good clean up. He is not a big fan of the brush in his gentleman's region.

It's a competition between the dogs and I if they can bring more ice in the house than I have in my beard.:)

My dog is a giant snowball!

Lucy just LOVES the snow. This is only the 2nd real snow since I've had her. The entire time I was outside shoveling yesterday, and you should see the tunnels she's made in my back yard. Not sure about the rest of you in the DC metro area, but I got about 24 inches of snow this weekend. Can't wait to get the Element out of the garage!

Brutus had a blast in the 18" of snow we got, but it just runs right off his back. No problems with him bringing it in the house. Gotta love the short hair!

Try heating up a thick plush towel in the dryer for a few minutes. Not too hot, though. I keep a few around to cycle through on snowy days. Here's Ozzie and his duck.

I tried using a blower and it didn't seem to work very well. :lol:
That is great. I have 2 that like that and the other one runs like hell into the house.:grin:
