You may already know this, but I'm not really a *huge* fan of grooming.
You probably didn't know this, but I HATE having my tail messed with or touched or stepped on. I had it stepped on too many times as a pup, and to this day I'm very defensive of it.
Also, I am a Sheltie. I have really long, thick, hair. ESPECIALLY on my tail. My mom measured my tail hairs once and said that they were seven and eight inches long in some places. What!? And it's really course, tangly hair, much tanglier than my other hair.
Those facts all combine to make my tail upkeep the most difficult task known in the universe!
So, my mom cut my tail hair. She cut it it to about four inches long all around (it looks dumb in my humble opinion, but whatever), and brushed it out really thoroughly. Then, she put all the hair on it into a little ponytail. She did it as a joke, but since I didn't mind it, she left it on.
Mom said she has no plans of making this a permanent "thing" for me. I have to say, I'm pretty glad. It's not uncomfortable, but it's really ugly.
