Royal Snit Fit

When a passerby asked why the Little Prince’s coat showed shedding, the Hu-Dad explained the Royal Snit Fit.

We are accustomed to receiving compliments on our walks including the one that amuses the Hu-Dad the most (“They are so well-behaved!” – Boy, can Hu-Dad roll his eyes). Yesterday, a lady commented on our furry coats and then asked why Typhoon’s looked, well, less-brushed. Hu-Dad said because of the Royal Snit Fit. She might not have understood the answer, but any of us who have heard the screams of horror emanating from the Little Prince when a brush approaches understand.

    Hu-Dad you should use our response when anyone says our 2 are well behaved and it’s “They have their moments”! Yet at 10 and 12 years old most of their escapades are out of them.

    Koda welcomes a bath but brushing is a “Daddy Mommy has completely lost her mind she has that weapon in her hand-she calls it a brush. She’s gone mad with the crazies”.
    Or the face of “ Hazel doesn’t get brushed like that I do why can’t she be the one with that weapon thing”. Mind you Hazel has barely there Coonhound-Foxhound fur. Apparently Koda the Siberian sees no difference in their coats as he drops stufts of fluff.

    One must attempt to film the royal snit fit we have all heard about and share. 🙂

    Hu-Dad-I have never personally heard the screams of the Royal One-lol BUT can imagine!! Anyone who has heard the talking and crying of a Siberian Husky would understand!!! I would love to see the eyes roll Hu-dad!!!

    Royal Snit Fit is an excellent title, will remember that one. Ruby is a wooly so people just think she is fat. Bring out the brush and even the pupils dilate, heaven forbid we try a bath!! They are beautiful anyway.
