    I take things too literally! I have seen a foxy x with longish hair (think 'pants' on the hindlegs, and more hair on the neck than a smooth coat) who was shaved...

    And shaving, well, shaves.
    I call it Clipping, because we do it with clippers (oster horse clippers), but I notice a lot of people call it shaving. Scissor work I call trimming. Each to their own I suppose

    I know some ppl that get their dog legs clipped to help stop grass seeds. Like GRs

    Boss (ACD) had his rib cage clipped when he ate rat bait. It took 6 months to grow back and the patches have just came good and he was clipped over 18 months ago.

    Interesting, Westies obviously aren't my expertise :P I just remember a few things that I read or heard from my dad reading on the internet (probably not a good idea to believe anything my dad says anyway). I googled it though to better understand and I think I got confused as the breeder my parent's got their male Westie from was a breeder who shows her dogs and has a grooming business on the side. This breeder doesn't shave her dogs from memory so I assume she hand stips them and trims/clips them. If you aren't into showing Westies I imagine that shaving them is probably much more convenient than paying lots of money to have them hand stripped and clipped every 3 months.

    I somehow got good ol' mellow staffordshire genes! Do you have any photos, to derail the topic slightly? Not often I see any other Cairn x's, most are PBs!
