    Excellent pic of Bodie and the Open Road. Glad to see and read he is up and about.

    This morning I skipped the usual morning dog soirée. The hot and humid weather of late has been punishing for both me and Tio (our Port.Water Dog). Having a curly coat means it needs trimming periodically. This morning I did more than trim. I nearly shaved (Oster dog trimmer #10 blade) Tio. A bath, pin brush, ears, nails were the prep for the trim on a grooming table outside. Outcome - my dog should be more heat weather comfortable and easier to clean after coming out of lake many times a day. Yesterday evening I had to bath the dog as he rolled in dead fish somewhere. Don't tell my wife that I just used soap (biodegradable) and bathed him standing in the lake. She would prefer the dog and I to be using the dog bath, grooming table, brushing while getting a blow dry.

    My dog, as I type, is sitting in his chair de-stressing from the "grooming." The wool chair cover and Pendelton blanket are frequently a bit damp from him being in and out of water often each day this time of the year.

    I’ll get her to check. She finds this junk. A pair of Falstaff would be cool.

    Thanks, HJ he’s much better and off the leash in two weeks.

    No heart shaped glasses.

    HJ does one of the best around, perhaps he’ll offer some insight. It took a good bit of steam and the use of my thumb and forefinger to widen the ends. Seems getting the middle to narrow and stay was the difficult part.

    Old Frothingslosh?
     
  14. Thanks for the compliment BB! Ross, I start all my Cattleman & center creases with a wooden rolling pin. My mom had two I kept, one is a smaller diameter (for pastry dough?). I also sometimes use a 2" dia dowl rod. If you don't have a rolling pin in your kitchen you can probably find one cheap at a garage sale. If you want me to go into more detail on the Dogbone let me know; I'll think it thru & type it out. I've done a few.

    The Bulldogger center crease was done with the smaller dia rolling pin.

    Thanks, B. He’s especially fond of the front lawn. That’s usually his first stop of the morning.

    Yours were the first I remember seeing too, and I appreciate the suggestions Jack and BB! I’ll give it another go with steam this weekend, it would be nice to mix up one of my cattleman’s a touch.
     
  19. First reference I ever found to the crease and the name Dogbone was from Resistol. It was an optional crease to an OR clone you could order. Unfortunately I didn't note the catalog or yr.
