The Little Prince Hiding From The Brush

As summer approaches, we Siberian Huskies need a lot of grooming. Not everyone is happy about that as evidenced by The Little Prince hiding from the brush.

What evil is the Hu-Dad doing?

Landon, Typhoon, and Qannik are all about finished with the spring coat blowing, though each need just a light maintenance to keep the fur under control. Frankie and Kiska have shifted into high gear while Cheoah is just starting to look poofy.

Barely started removing Frankie Fur.

We range from tolerating the brush to absolutely adoring the attention (Frankie falls in the range of loving it). And, of course, there is the Little Prince.

That thing just smells evil.

So, Typhoon, why don’y you come out from under the desk and let Hu-Dad brush you?

I will just stay right here where it is safe, thank you.

    Rory,aka the Rornado,
    Is my girl.She’s a red & white with ICE blue eyes.
    She’s also anti-brush…At 8 yrs old you’d think she’d be used to it…But she REALLY does not like it…Or the “plucking”…She has the most amazing,thick fur(it’s been called luxurious!!),
    But she prefers the natural look ;>

    Too funny how they all react differently to getting “brushed”!!!!! AAWW Typhoon-it will be over soon and all that nasty hair will be on the floor instead of on you!
