Yorkshire Terriers, and some other kinds of dogs too, do not have fur. They have hair – like humans. They are especially good dogs for people with dog allergies for this reason. Most dogs have an undercoat under their “hair”. I know you get combs that strip off the outer hair to show the undercoat. Westies – West Highland Whites – have this done to them.
Today, our Furlong dog, is going to be clipped. He has wondrous shiny hair as a result of being a totally Paleo-diet dog. He eats only raw meat and some vegetables.
