You can not have, just throw.
Oh, and have a Mohawk.
Maybe you noticed the above Facebook post. For all those wondering about the Longhair; I suppose many might view this as over-the-top. Nevertheless, the Longhair addict has been known to indulge in activities not available to those having the traditional smooth coat. Now, I can hear some of you saying, “Thank God!” Regardless, it is all in fun. Goldee has been a Superstar–she models professionally but also for Grandma Terri Jacobson who has provided countless high-quality photos that we were able to share on our blog. Thank you, Grandma Terri!
What did I mean by indulging other than combing the occasional Mohawk? How about the braid that Holly and Goldee shared like twins? Click here to see that slideshow. It is all in fun. The non-longhair crowd imagines this hair is different than the reality. It doesn’t mean there is not a bit more grooming; however, with the grooming it is manageable. There is not the pile of hair along the woodwork, nor is the yellow oil stain on the wall. Neither is a thing with this breed. Your clothing, the furniture, and whatnot are not covered with hair. Even the traditional coat sheds, so yes, you can find hair. Nevertheless, in comparison with other breeds, I think we can call it nominal.
The toe fluff can be groomed if you want to get away from the extra tracking effect. Nothing can save you from the Weimaraner that chooses the mud bath. What can I say? That requires at least a rinsing. We have known people who get their Longhair shaved for the summer–yes, the hair comes back. And just in case you didn’t know, there is a double coat–the thick undercoat with the feathering that can vary in the amount and length. A smooth coat who carries the DNA marker for the Longhair might have the double-coat with not real feathering. Or they may have a little wavy hair down their back, on their tail, etc.
You cannot brush the hair up into a Mohawk style or braid it unless they are a true Longhair. Some celebrate these events and love the wavy ears. Toe hair gets photographed. Who knew, it would be a thing? While some detest what many call the Other Weimaraner, the number of fans continue to grow. It is a fascinating phenomenon.
