The Story of the Shed-ding!


My Mom says this 'toon is the story of her life but I don't get it, do you?

She wants me to thank evfurry buddy who wrote in about Shed-ding.

Some of you said it was normal for my breed Borador, somebody said it was normal for dogs who lived a cushy life (izzat me?), some said try the Furminator and we have been there, but not with the spray so we may try that.  Some said to learn to LOVE it (oh, sure!) and others said to learn to live with it (this was most of you).  Others said shedding was normal for Fall, and others said Normal for all year. Somebody said Brushing and More Brushing. And one person said it had been a medical issue (Thyroid) for her lab and since we have to see our Vet pretty soon, we will remember that one.

One person who has four sibes we all know, this is Army of Four, and she said she has Three Vacuum cleaners and Zim has one.  My Mom said she will be interested in this picture for the rest of her life! 

So last I heard she is going to keep me and  pushing the vacs around (we only have two!)  I hope you all
enjoyed responding to my question, I loved hearing from you all! 

My Mom says from here on she is keeping every bit of floof she gets and is gonna get Ludo's Mom to help her build a huge dog to sit in the front yard, and cover it with black floof.  Then when some washes away, well, we will just have more to stick on, won't we.

Khyra got all excited because she thought it was about sled-ding and that we had big snow.  Hamish though it was about Sheds, which interests him for some reason.

Ali Z writes tomorrow, I think she is upstairs working on her column tonight.  Stop and visit tomorrow, you never know what she's gonna say.

Kisses and Love,

Stella and her Mom

Hey there Stella
What a fun feedback post. The point that stuck out for me was the picture of the Army of four and their vacuum cleaners. I think we should press them for that - their home is far too tidy (hehe!)
Have and awesome day. We love you lots.

Ooh, you could also make Stella-Sweaters and sell them at Etsy!

Shedding? Is that like stripping? Except yours falls out and ours gets plucked?

Moma keeps ours in a bag, too, and has been known to spin it into fiber. Weird. But it smells pretty interesting!

Love

Hi Stella! You have some great pals. Love the sledding and shed-comments about the shedding situation. My mom thinks it is pretty normal. And could cycle more or less throughout our lives.

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
Sierra Rose

We love the idea of building a dog! Our mum has often said we could make another basset out of all our fur!!!
Have a nice day Stella.
love

Well Stella, let me explain the cartoon. My interpretation is that it is an ironic commentary on the idiocy of Creationists, who wrongly believe (1) that dinosaurs and humans once co-existed and (2) that it would be possible to fit all the zillions of members of the animal kingdom into one smallish boat.
Oh. Gail tells me she thinks its just a dumb joke about being forgetful. Some people are so shallow...
Cheers! H.

Embrace the floof!

Slobbers,

The Thundering Herd said...

We can donate our little, teeny, tiny amount of floof to your dog construction project if you wish.

P.S. - Maybe Ali Z will have a solution for your shedding?

KB said...

Just one more opinion. I don't like the furminator very much.

My Labs aren't shedding right now so I can't send fur. When they shed, I will!

The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

hahaha!!! we love the cartoon!!!! we are saving our furs for sweaters!

The Army of Four said...

I have to find a pic of me with my vacuum. Or maybe I'll have MOm take a new pic of us together.

I love that cartoon. I need to send it to my best friend.

We live with shedding. Morgan sheds year round. Tsar blows his coat twice a year and leaves mouse sized clumps everywhere. We call them Tsar's mice.

The Porties don't technically shed, but there are suspicious black hairs around that either fell out or got pulled out while wrestling.

Don't let your mom see my blog post today or she might get another idea.
