I normally don't start stripping until about the 12th beer.

Just kidding. @ what age do you normally start hand stripping your GWP to ensure a harsh wirey coat?

Antuan needs about 7-8 shots of Tequila before he starts.

...but regarding your pup. If he is about 6 months or older, you can strip him if you see some stray hairs that can be pulled out with your fingers.

Why do you strip and how do you know what to strip?
Color me confused, but that's where I am. Smile
Sorry, I'm just not following along....See how I am?

Thanks!
