You all know how Poodles have top knots to keep the hair out of their faces.
Well, I think BOTTOM KNOTS are useful in keeping the hair out of the way of a bitch who is whelping a litter. It is only useful on long haired bitches.
It may not be pretty to look at, but nothing can be worse than having their britches act as a dark green paint brush.
In the end (pun) it helps to keep the hair out of the way when the bitch is whelping and afterwards while she is still leaking birthing fluids. There is nothing quite like the sight of black/green grundge all over light coloured pants. The best thing is that bitch does not have to spend as much time in the bathtub, when she really wants to be with her puppies.
What do you do?
