    So, when you turn up with Eddie, you taking Cleas a can of carpet cleaner?

    That would be such a nice thing to do.

    Ok...back to being serious for a second...

    As a cavy X does Poppy need the fur around her bot bot trimmed or anything? I was looking at it today when giving to good ol' tummy rub and thought to myself that it does get a bit dirty towards the end of the week. Hence why I find myself washing her often!

    So whats your advice on this one?

    If you are finding little "raisins" then yes I would trim it, and also trim under the base of the tail if she doesn't lift her tail when she goes. You don't need to trim a huge area, start with the bits that you notice get dirty, as see if it helps. Eventually you'll work out what needs to be trimmed and what doesn't.

    They also need the hair between their toes/excess under their paws trimmed don't they? And sometimes clippered on the underside of the ear (not recommended to do at home unless you've had a groomer or vet show you how and made sure that the dog isn't scared of the clippers!

    Yeh! I knew about the paws/in between the toes thing! But was told not to worry about it till she is older...though... she does have some coming through now. Will show you tomorrow! Didn't know about the ears...but it makes sense. Maybe I need to find a groomer? A good one?

    I would certainly do the underside of their paws if it's getting long, stops them slipping and sliding on hard floors, plus stops them getting yucky stuff glued to the hair. If there is longer fur that pokes out between the top of the toes, that's personal preference, I think it looks cute, but once again if it's trimmed it keeps the feet cleaner.

    As to the ears, I usually only trim lightly if at all, some groomers will pull out all the hair from the ear canal. It depends on how much hair is there and how gunky it is. If the ear canal looks like it clogged with hair then I would pull some out, but I think a little hair in there is good, stops things getting into the canal.

    Ears like Poppy's should be regularly checked, every day if she's been out walking in long grass. Lift the ear, check they look fairly clean, and once a week stick your nose in there to have a sniff, if they smell off they may need a good clean or there could be an infection.

    Ears like Batty's won't be so prone to infection as the air gets in there to circulate, but once again, check them if he's been in long grass.
