Wordless Wednesday #14

It’s official!

Spring time is here! How do I know? Not only can I turn the heaters off, but the dogs are blowing coat and in need of a good brush-out.

Here they are with their respective fur-piles:

Putt-Putt and his fur-pile

You’re not going to brush me again are you?

Hank and his fur-pile

Didn’t think I had that much fur did you?

Chloe and her fur-pile

That came from me?

Willow and her fur-pile

Uh, nope that’s not mine.

All together now

Combine them all together now…

Where did that come from?

Belle: Where did that come from?

      Actually once she got a good sniff she ran! Not sure if it was because it stank, or because she thought she was next.

      Besides throw some out for birds to use as nest material and compost it, no we don’t.

      It would be a lot of work to prep it in order to make something with it, and I don’t think I could ever ‘wear’ whatever I made after they passed.

      We usually try to get a paw imprint in clay if we can, and frame our favorite picture of them with their collar after they’ve gone to wait at the rainbow bridge.

      My condolences to your client, it’s not easy loosing a pet.

      Ugh, it’s a never ending battle! Even after they’ve blown coat they still shed! I have to vacuum daily just to keep up!

      Yup, today was proof of it, I was out working in the yard most of the day and Putt-Putt kept me company the whole time! The temp today was near 70*, I’m sure if I had not brushed him out he would have been miserable. We still may get a cold snap or two but we’d only notice it at night and everyone sleeps inside.

    The first time I used a rake to brush my German Shepherds years ago when they were blowing their coats, my entire family thought I was going to end up with bald dogs! If there was just someone willing to pay for dog hair, you’d be super rich! BOL!

      Lol! I wish!

      I have to admit, there have been a few times while brushing them out that I was in utter shock at how much fur I got from ONE spot and could have sworn if I got anymore they would have been bald!

    That would stir my allergies up to a frenzy, but still it would be wonderful to spin and knit with.

      Unfortunately I have to agree, during tree pollen season (spring) the pollen gets EVERYWHERE! Even though I’m gratefully NOT allergic to our animals I am allergic to the tree pollen, and they do tend to catch a lot of pollen in their fur.

    I sweep 2X a day here and always joke about the “fuzz baby” I end up with! Your dogs are cute! We are now following you in a few places! Come by and see us!

    We joke about their shedding as well. When people ask us how bad it is, we usually say ‘we get a new carpet every few days… and we don’t have carpet in our house.’ lol

    That’s a lot of fur. You could make a shirt out of it. Good thing my dog doesn’t shed that much.
    Look at the dog’s expression on the first pic. It’s like he’s trying not to get caught shedding but then you found him out and your holding a brush, just like the caption says. LOL . The second dog’s feeling casual about his shedding. LOL on all the pics and captions here. They all have different reaction and facial expression and the caption definitely captures their thoughts. Hahah. Can you add their cite their names on the caption next time please. I’d love to know the names of these cuties.
