Little Prince Typhoon Phooey is quite serious with his brush avoidance techniques, which results in a quite stylish fur coat.
Among many of Typhoon’s unique qualities is a resistance by being touched, but particularly by a brush. Hu-Dad actually got a little bit of brushing in yesterday resulting in the better looking sections of coat, but Typhoon refused the rest. And when he refuses, he screams. At the top of his lungs. A blood curdling scream. To avoid the neighbor’s calling the Sheriff thinking a violent crime is happening, Hu-Dad picks and choses his moments. (By the way, Typhoon screams ever louder when the blower comes out, so that isn’t an option either. And forget about plucking.)
If you remember just a few weeks ago, Landon was looking very ratty as well. Fortunately, he is nearing the end of his coat blowing for the spring and is quite happy to be brushed. Yes, we tried to shame Typhoon that his little brother was fine with a brush, but his reaction was not positive.
