One of the great joys of living in a Siberian Husky household is each dog molts fur twice a year. Oh, and somehow, Hu-Dad sounds slightly sarcastic when he says “great joys.” Shrug, just a little hair of the dog, Hu-Dad.
Typhoon was the first to shed his winter coat, so he is apparently predicting an early winter as well. Or he is just playing yet another practical joke on Hu-Dad.
The bad news for you addicted fur pluckers (and, yes, Hu-Dad is one of those), Typhoon hates plucking. And being brushed. And being blown by our Air Force Commander we talked about just last week. In fact, if you attempt to remove fur from Typhoon in any manner, he screams. Yes, screams.
So, sorry, fur pluckers of the world, Typhoon refuses to play that game. Thus, you will get to see shaggy Typhoon pictures for the next week or two. Even reading this blog might lead to you finding dog hair on your clothes. You have been warned.

Way Back Wednesday
Each week, we reach back into our vault of over 4,700 previous posts and share a favorite. We hope you enjoy this look back.
The Queen and Decorum
Even after a long hike, a Queen must always avoid a fashion faux pas like, say, an out of place tongue. No, the Queen and Decorum are intact.
I thought I was the only one that “plucked” my Husky. Glad to see its a normal thing. I just can’t help my self & have to do it. Both my girls love the brushing but only for so long then its like oh we’re done now they get up & move away. Brats they are
I am Hu-Dad. I am a Sibe-Pluck-Aholic.
Leena will accept some brushing, but if I went near her with the air force commander she’d destroy it. Will the little prince let you give him rubs….and in the process remove the fur that way? Say with one of those hand mitt things?
Hu-Dad has mitts,too, and Typhoon says no way. So, Hu-Dad uses the old fashion hand rubbing without plucking and a mix of scratching. That usually lasts for 5-10 seconds before Ty does his “Don’t Touch Me” dance, but at least it gets some hair off.
Maybe Typhoon’s fur has nerve endings.
Mom sez: No, Typhoon is definitely NOT alone in not liking to be brushed, blown, or anything resembling hair removal from him. Ice is the same. In fact, of all the Sibes we’ve had, our new little Ebby is the anomaly. She LOVES being brushed.
Oh no! Poor Typhoon! I have met so many huskies that hate grooming! He’s not alone.
