It was bound to happen

It was bound to happen, mom knew it would eventually

Mom knew it was bound to happen, she’s been waiting for it for a few weeks actually. It’s that time of year, and we came to warmer weather a few weeks ago. While we were in St. George, she waited, and watched. Nothing. Then we arrived in Lake Havasu on Thursday, and well, it began. Then it REALLY began. Yep, Torrey is blowing her coat. 
It was bound to happen
Mom says I started it all. She noticed I was shedding a lot when we were in St. George. She gave me a bath in Auntie Shannon’s sink and little old me shed enough hair, to make another me. Torrey won’t be able to have a bath, so mom has been brushing her really good.

 This is just a small amount of hair. Since we are out in the middle of nowhere, mom doesn’t worry about picking up all the hair. There is quite a bit that flies away with the wind.  
 It was bound to happen, dog shedding
 Mischief on Torrey today. Hopefully Miss Hairball, will just get it over with soon. 
Don’t miss out on the Monday Mischief blog hop today.

  1. Agree with Tootsie! We like to share our fur with the birds in the spring. Makes for soft nests :-)

  2. Roxy, tell mom to check out needle felting – she can make lots of adorable animals and purses, and other things from all the beautiful shed hair! Just Google it and find a new hobby for those long evenings!

  3. it will be great nesting material for the birdies in the spring. Its still very cold and damp and foggy smoggy here. 8 degrees right now.

  4. I hear ya Torrey I shed like you do, but I think I will keep mine with below 0 weather still haunting us.

  5. That’s probably the worst part of being am Aussie mom. Good thing you’re outside. I LOVE my undercoat brush for my dogs. Piles and piles of hair in five minutes.

  6. This goofy weather has us blowing coat too. Our person says the birds really like leftover hair to make their nests so best to try to keep your furs until then….lol.

    the brown dawgs

  7. when i had long-haired dogs i always brushed them outside so the fur could be picked up by birds and used in nest building…recycling at its finest..

  8. Hey Roxy,

    I hope she remembers to keep a little bit :)

    When my Mum brushes me she says she gets a whole new puppy, every week!!

    I hope you’re having a fun day,

    Your pal Snoopy :)

  9. I hear you about coat blowing! We just got done here and are gearing up for it to happen all over again in a few months!

  10. Oh my goodness – I’m just getting to the end of this process with Ty! The hairballs in the RV were ridiculous and it didn’t matter how long I brushed him … more fur just kept coming off. I’m sure now that Ty’s done Buster will start. =)
