• Well, I decided that Kahlo will have to wear a coat if it is going to continue with this cold. Everyone askes if she is a Briard - and just nods and "mhmmm" when I say that she is a Giant Schnauzer - so time for trim.

    So we start projekt "Exstrem makeover ala Schnauzer" and every projeckt has a "befor" picture:

    However - I didn't finish so we'll have to manage with pictures of the prosess:

    One more.. (yes - she does hate me)

    And, where is Kasko when Kahlo is getting tortured? Being bad of course. My grooming box had to die…

    "whaaat? It was like this, I promise! I just lay here eating someting…"

    And next time I turned around:

    And after about 4 hours of Kahlo torture:

    Still have a couple of hours ahead of me.

    As a reward for good behavior Kahlo got a walk of leash - and then som playtime with Kasko:

    "Smoch!"

    Never a boring moment with a Giant and a Basenji. 😃


  • She's now half Briard, half Schnauzer 😃 Sort of Designer dog 😃 😉

    Kasko is a true basenji.. 🙂 Very naughty..


  • Love the pictures!

    I had the luck to trim a briard once… great.. I think you will spend as much time with the schnauzer as with a briard 😃 (a long time)


  • A long time it is… Auch my back. I normally use 4-5 houres - but this time it takes longer since she should have been stripped 2 moths ago. If i had used the clipper instead of handstripping her it would take 2 hours max.


  • She's so pretty…looks like she went to the beauty shop.

    And he's such a scamp!

    It's great to see them getting along so well. 🙂


  • That is a LOT of hair on the floor! I prefer the grooming of the basenji, ha!
    And seeing the pup sleeping in your destroyed grooming box…priceless. They look like a good pair of playmates.


  • Kahlo looks wonderful!
    And about Kasko, isn't he a Basenji? :D:D:D

    Love the pictures and the comments..Kahlo is looking great and Kasko is simply adorable even in his mischief…

    When I had a westie in Sweden (1976-1990) we would have him hand stripped as well, but once I got a westie here in the states, finding a good stripper here was very hard, every groomer here i houston (that I found and interviewed) would use a clipper and just make westies look horrible..hmmm 😢 .
    I never did learn how to do it on my own..
    Now, with all short haired breeds in the house..grooming is easy..I love that.


  • Yeah i almost never see american schanuzers handstripped - Don't know why really. Lots of giants gets clipped here to, but Kahlo has to soft an curly coat so I dont want it to get softer and curlier.

    Now I have used another hour or so on her - and still have loads left - im just SO glad i decided on basenji as "dog nr 2" I don't think I could handle one more breed that needs grooming.


  • Can't wait to see the finished Dog Anette


  • They both just look GREAT together I just love seeing them together. They make a great pair.
