    It's over 90 today...if I bathe my Silkies outside, do I need to do anything more than towel drying followed by air drying? Or is that not enough? Thanks in advance! [​IMG]

    Yeah, I would just towel dry them on a day like today. Though I love blow drying them and watch them go nuts over it in the house! hahahaha

    Thanks for the reply! They are extra sticky from all the fruit they've been snacking on for the past week, so I just wanted to give them a quick clean up today. BUT, I definitely look forward to bringing them indoors for blow dry time in the future!

    Yeah, I agree. On a day like that, you don't really need to blow-dry. I also prefer the drier though. [​IMG] Makes for an extra fluffy Silkie.
