Perhaps readers could help settle a little dispute we have in this household regarding a suitable grooming regime for the older male (dog) who still wants to impress the ladies.
Me, I favour the rugged approach. Think 'Real Dog'. Untrimmed coat, a little tousled. Mud on the paws and belly. A rich, pungent perfume signifying a close relationship with nature, acquired, perhaps, by a satisfying roll in 'material' left behind by a fox.
Gail seems to think otherwise. Visits to the hairdresser are deemed appropriate. Scissors, showers and shampoo are all involved. I've even recently been threatened with a toothbrush (heaven forbid!) And there seems to be an objection to me riding in the Mini if I'm smelling a certain way.......
Your views, please.
