Chelsea is bright and white again! (The legs in the photo belong to my husband Steve.)
Only a few days from her last grooming Chelsea got herself dirty again, we thought. We were sure she was getting sand on herself when we were walking her along the canal everyday. She would scuff her feet in the stones and dirt throwing debris into the air and onto her body.
We fixed that. We changed the direction of her walk avoiding the canal. Aha! We would know where she walked and what she did all the time. Surely Chelsea would stay clean walking only in the grass along the sidewalk.
Nothing changed! Her fur became gray and ragged-looking just like it did before and only a few days after her bath and cut. Now we know Chelsea is innocent! Dirt is the culprit! It hunts her down and grabs her fur!
