Hungarian Komondor sheepdog certainly mop up attention when they are taken out for a walk.
Their dreadlocked white coat takes 24 hours to dry after washing and experts insist that they should never be brushed - good news for the owners.
A model wore an outfit by designer Michiko Koshino during London Fashion Week (2005). She laboured under an entire department store's worth of mop heads, the ropey ends trailing around her head and totally engulfing her body.

Stem: After pollination the flowering stem begins a noticeable elongation, pushing the fruits (plumed seeds) up into the air.

The Rainbow Painter took brush in hand
Began to dabble above the Land.
In skies of misty, rainy blue,
He placed his brushes down and drew,
An arching wave across the sky,
Above the Earth the Mountains high.
And then he took his paints of red,
Colored a streak, a pink instead.
And then he made another green,
Another yellow, in his altered scene.
Until there was the brightest glow
Above the earth, his crayoned show!
By Linda A Copp (worte in 1970)
