Defluff A Boom Boom (But Not A Little Prince)

With shedding season upon us, Hu-Dad spent a little time to defluff a Boom Boom. Fortunately, he likes brushing much more than the Little Prince.

When you defluff a Siberian Husky, you get a lot of fluff.

When you defluff a Siberian Husky, you get a lot of fluff.

We Siberian Huskies don’t exactly shed. We molt. We blow coat. We produce a ridiculous amount of hair. So the humans have to periodically defluff a Siberian Husky. The result can be a horrifying amount of undercoat to the uninitiated.

Bud don't I look good?

But don’t I look good?

Fortunately, Landon enjoys the brush. His preference is to sit in Hu-Dad’s lap while being brushed. Great snuggle time for him, though the Hu-Dad does get covered in fur.

Not all of us enjoy brushing quite so much. In fact, somepup has been known to scream at the top of his lungs whenever a brush touches his body. Just one little guess.

Royalty doesn't do brushes.

    Typhoon> Working dogs do not get defluffed, we work. No need of defluffing!
