Today we have the Bichon brothers. I have a friend in California that has five Bichon and she sends me all sorts of the soft clean wonderful fur. I have used it time and time again .. not only for the Bichon but any other white breed that this soft fur works well on. Very difficult and time consuming to get the fur ready for my work however the result can be outstanding when done with great care. Somehow the real dog fur when applicable just makes the piece come to life. As mentioned time and again I am very interested in the dogs looking as if they may take a breath or bark at any moment.
