It's shedding time once again - just in case you needed to be reminded.LOL. I swear I could sit all day with every possible grooming tool I own and still not be ahead. It has been a very windy last few days here in Michigan, and every time the wind blows, the fur flies. Poor Minnie reminds me of Pig Pen from Charlie Brown - but instead of being surrounded by a cloud of filth, it's fur.
I try to make the process seem more fruitful, by reminding myself of all the bird nests Minnie will be contributing to. But the only thing that really makes me smile every year, is remembering an ad I saw once, in one of my knitting magazines. It may already be on this forum already, but are you all aware of the option of having your corgi fur, spun into yarn and made into an attractive sweater for yourself - or perhaps a hat & scarf set for some lucky, loved one on your Christmas list? Talk about recycling. According to one site, double coated dog fur is actually warmer then wool. And...Martha Stewart is said to be down with the idea as well.
I myself, can not wrap my head around wearing my dog - But
....just in case any of you would like to make the most out of this shedding season - let me know, I would be willing to knit anything for a fellow corgi lover and/or wearer.
