The Furminator

I was hoping that no one would notice, but I have been shedding for about a week now. I do this a couple of times a year but the "springtime shed" is the pits. Even when someone so much as touches me, my fur comes out by the handful. This is my super warm "winter coat" that I am losing. My mom has been working on me with something called The Furminator. It kind of looks like a comb, but it has a razor in it and my hair just peels off! I'll bet she has furminated about 10 pounds of my pelage!! That is a fancy word for fur! She needs to be very careful or I will get razor burn.


  1. Hi Ivy! Our mom thinks her best friend is the vacuum-cleanner because our fur is always on the floor!

  2. Our house is covered w/ yellow and black lab hair...Rama is always brushing us and vacuuming the floor...If she wears light colors, you see Buddy fun; dark colors shows Zack and Sassy fur-She can't win!
    But thankfully she says, "A home without fur, is a home without love!"

  3. Very fancy word Ivy! Good thing you are ditching your winter duds because it is hot! At least here in Florida! I can't keep track of where you are these days but if you are not in Florida you will be all set when it is time to come back.
    As always you look beautiful in your summer coat!

  5. I feel ya! The infidel uses a Furminator on me. It is like some medieval device sent to torture us! Run away or better still EAT IT!!!!!
