Yarra (QOAT) is an almost 7 year old big standard girl with a perfect, loose wavy coat. Her color is very unusual too; I call it a latte/lavender. She began life as a chocolate girl but started silvering at about 14 months old.
She has been professionally groomed 4 times but it was always my goal to groom her myself.
Before she arrived I started collecting grooming…

Hi Kate, Thank you for the friend request.  Of course, Accepted :)

One quick question I have always wanted to ask you; are you of Greek Decent. I ask because of your last  name. I am 3rd generation.  All four grandparents arrived around 1913-1918.  Just thought I'd ask. The last name Pappas is.. well a give away.

I do have relatives living is Mission Vego (sp)

Kate, I read on the Doodle Zoo where you mentioned DerMagic products.  My Abby has a flea bite allergy, she scratched so hard she pulled a lot of hair out.  She also had rust colored spots on her skin, the vet looked at them but said they didn't seem to bother her.  I order the DerMagic kit and bathed her weekly for 4 weeks and used the lotion on her spots and the spots where she had bites.

She hasn't gotten any new spots and the ones she had were gone by the second week.  Since October no new spots and no sctatching.  Thanks to you life is good again for her.

Hi Kate, I was just looking over your grooming tips for Yarra who is gorgeous.  My Riley is 16 weeks old and he is turning exactly the same colour and also has a long loose fleece coat.  His father reminds me very much of Yarra.  I am gathering all the grooming stuff at the moment and am going to DIY Riley.  Thanks for sharing all that information because lots of the dogs here are curly coats and not many are like your Yarra and my Riley.

Hi Kate!  Thank you so much for the gift & the gift of knowledge.  Your information is so helpful.  I am so thankful for your information.  I wish more people would be willing to share information to make it easier for those who come in after.  I am still soaking up the information and because of it, I am taking Dublin out with  me today.  I have had a rough week so today is the first day I will actually be leaving the house sadly.  Thanks again, talk soon

Thanks Kate!  I'm going to check out your post on grooming.  I could use some help!
