#62 of 75 pen/ink sketches

Daily blogging seems to be a habit I can't break at the moment.

What the......??

This morning, I woke up at 5am, and it was already quite hot and humid.
Yesterday was like a sauna and I felt so sorry for Cody and Jack. 
Their coats weren't over-long since I'd clipped them a couple of months ago 
but there was definitely enough length to make it an uncomfortable day for them. 
So by 6am, I was scissor-trimming Cody, followed by Jack. 
I figured I'd get it out of the way before the real heat of the day set in. 
Wise move!

I ended up sending the cheap electric pet trimmers back for a refund. 
They just didn't do the job properly. 
Michelle bought the same set and was of the same opinion. 
I am pleased that the company stood by their word and 
were very quick paying the refund back into my Paypal account.

For my sketch today,
I chose one of the combs I use while I scissor-cut. 
They are very handy for holding the hair in place and
also act as a protection shield while I use the scissors. 
No dogs were cut on my watch. ;)

By the way,
the first image is SOME of the fur I shook off in the yard 
from the table protector cloth I used. ;)

Pencil-free sketch in A6 Moleskine pocket sketchbook 
using BIC Pro pen and a wee touch of Micron pen.

I hope you're all having a lovely weekend.
