2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

out of curiosity are you supposed to shave wookies or just let them be? Nala's are incredibly long right now and she hates her paws touched so if i did try to shave them it should be like torture to her! she has had them shaved once by a groomer and shes the only one that has done this, is it something that should be done often?

I think Chewie would be pretty upset if you shaved him...

That is a shaved Wookie.

I'm not sure what you meant by Wookie.....but the only Wookies I know, come from Kashyyyk.

I trim Kenzi's strays between her toes. I don't think it's really necessary to do so though. I just use scissors, pet her paws for a bit until she calms down then grab the patch and hack it off. I only do it because we have a lot of tile and wood in our house and she seems to slide a little less on it when she doesn't have all the extra bush under her feet.

Teen wolf vs. shaved Wookie. What's the difference?

This just made me feel older, because I have no idea what teen wolf is.

This conversation reminds me of the How I met your mother episode where they have the Ewok line and Barney is freaking out because he thinks his girlfriend is older than she is cause she hates the Ewoks.

Needless to say though, that Wookie is terrifying.

It was also (originally) an 80s movie starring Michael J Fox, Jen! You should at least know that!

Sorry, I got all of them, shaved Wookie, (but I didn't know what planet, Kelly you nerd) and both teen wolfs, Michel J Fox and Michel Landon. God I'm really old.
Incidentally, I trim Maya's pad hair when she starts to slide around the floor too much. I also keep them trimmed in the winter to keep snow from balling up between her toes.

I've trimmed Mishka's paw fur too.

And I am totally a fan of the MTV Teen Wolf. Lol. (And know the others as well.)

DITTO word for word except change Maya to Bourbon and add I had to google the third ie the MTV Teen Wolf cause I did not know about that genre. Yep it is the age difference haha!

Shaqua's paw fur gets so long I have to trim it to keep it from getting clogged with mud on our walks/runs. If I don't trim the fur it grows to be several inches long....
