Bunch of different things on the burner, so I got busy and cleaned 'em up.


On the left rear is a #26 arm for my Strap Motor #2.  The three arms on the right of that are all for PS replacement.  On the left front is Strap Motor #2 that the #26 is going into.  ***On the right is a Champion 16D that I showed here before being built.  It's got the full "Orange Picker" end bell treatment and some other mods...sporting ball bearings on both ends.  Per the racer's request, it got a #26, making it a pretty frightening motor.  Now I can reee-lax, oops! I forgot I have to cut and wash the pup dagnabbit!

Mine's a lot smaller Steve, and her hair isn't THAT bad (*I've seen that breed before), but it's difficult to cut.  She really dislikes getting her hair cut, but loves the bath afterwards!  :D

John,

 

Just teasing. :laugh2:

 

Our dog, or more accurately my wife's dog, looks to be about the same size as yours.   She is a Yorkshire Terrier / Poodle mix (a Yorkiepoo), with about 14 pounds of Terrier weight, and 114 pounds of Poodle personality!  She also detests having her fur cut, or even trimmed (and don't even think about those nails) but will deign to allow you to bathe her afterward.

Hi Steve,

     Mine's a "Cavamalt" (*or a "Maltalier")...a King Charles/Maltese mix.  She's large for the type and weighs around 15-16 lbs.  Her hair is really nice and soft, but pretty dense and fine.  Clippers just "bounce off" it, and the really fine stuff on her belly can only be cut with scissors, a real PITA.  Your pup's hair looks sorta similar, and she's a beauty!  As for "personality", mine is the best around us...strangers (both people and dogs) not so much.  When people walking their dogs come near and ask if their dog and mine can "say hello", I always tell them it's a very bad idea.  :D
