Thanks to living in one of the hottest places on Earth, my boys have lost nearly all their hair. There is just enough to cover the skin, barely - it's almost like a full body comb over.
As the show season winds down, I am desperately trying to keep Speedy's hair on his body. Each time I groom him, I pull a few more hairs to the ground. I've started noticing that all of his many scars are showing themselves.
Some of them I remember, but most illicit the where'd you get THAT one?!?! response. I am trying to keep him show presentable, but it's getting harder by the day. Izzy is no better. Not only is he also dropping hair like a tree loses leaves in Autumn, but his coat has faded to a color that I no longer recognize.
I like to use a rubber jelly scrubber to lift off the dirt and gunk, but there's not enough hair on either boy for the scrubber to scrub. I hardly even need to use a brush - their hair is that thin.
It's not like I am looking forward to winter, but I'll be happy when their winter coats start growing in. At least they won't look like I am beating them with sharp objects.
