Folks, how much hair can one 35 pound dog shed without going bald? Well, I can tell you right now it is a HUGE AMOUNT! My floor looks like some weird furry fungus is growing on it. I sweep it all up and then, just as I put the broom away, a hair tumbleweed rolls across the floor in front of me, just to taunt me.
Honey seems to be getting furrier as she gets older. Is that even possible? I brushed her three times yesterday and each time got an amazing amount of hair off of her. Last summer when the same craziness was occurring, I took her to the groomer and had them work their magic. She came home with much less hair and we had maybe five days of living fur free. But then, like a creature out of a Harry Potter book, it seemed like her fur grew back in faster and thicker than ever! So I don’t think that is the answer.
The poor thing hates to be brushed so every time I do it she gives me that “Why are you torturing me Mommy” look. Sigh. If I am already dealing with great wads of fur in April, what will summer bring? I try not to think of it.
