Trust Me, Bro

Roscoe is enjoying a good brushing from the Hu-Dad, but seems to have a challenge convincing the Little Prince with a simple Trust Me, Bro.

Don't stop brushing, Hu-Dad.
Don’t stop brushing, Hu-Dad.

Roscoe is a huge fan of brushing time around Chez Herd. He has a nice short-hair coat with the trademark thick undercoat of a Siberian Husky, an easy coat to maintain made easier by his enjoyment of grooming time.

Roscoe's enthusiasm is not infectious on his hiding brother in the background.

Typhoon’s coat, unfortunately, has the thick, bristly undercoat that requires more grooming and, of course, hates the brush. Hu-Dad masted an entire 30 seconds of brushing on him last night before he hid under the desk from the assault. Roscoe’s enjoyment on full display in front of him did nothing to dissuade him.

Trust me, Bro, brushing is great.
Don't get near me with that evil thing.

    So how do you handle Typhoon’s thick mane, Hu-dad?

    I would sure love to see a video of sweet Ty and your attempt at brushing him. I’m sure Hu-Dad is exaggerating that sweet and angelic boy’s dislike for it. πŸ˜‰ πŸ™‚

    Roscoe looks so adorable and handsome. I guess Hu-Dad Typhoon will never be a fan of the evil brush!!!

    Hey Typhoon, Ruby here, I feel your pain from that old Medieval Torture Device. Humans should be punished for using them. I love my long matted hair.
