Here are some previous pics of me on one of my walkies before I had my furcut. Now I am quite glad that my fur is so much shorter.. not only is it cooler in the terrible hot and humid weather, it is also much more manageable and the humans don't have to spend so much time combing me, thus leaving me with time to do more impawtant things... like sleeping, playing, roaching, begging for table scraps, etc.

I guess because of the weather, Hershey's been blowing her coat recently and her fur is ALL OVER the house. And I really mean ALL OVER... on the curtains, in all the corners of the house, on the table tops, under the sofa, on the display shelves (yes, for this season, Border Collie fur is on display), in our food, in our water, on our bedroom slippers, on the quilt cover, list goes on... (now mom wishes that she did more research on the Border Collie breed before she brought Hershey home. LOL!!) The humans have been combing her non-stop and there is still a lot of fur on that body of hers!! The good thing is for us mixed breed dogs, we hardly ever shed, so mom never had this problem with me. **whew**

Putting on an 'innocent' face..

You look very manly in the photos, Huskee! Not that you don't look manly NOW, but you are very photogenic either way *wink*

I can't believe the weather is SOOO hot these days! I almost feel like I'm melting sometimes...>.<" No wonder Hershey sheds so much! Hope the weather gets back on track real soon!

Sounds like an interesting house of hair.

The shedding season is here and I'm driving my parents nuts with all my fluffy fur all over the house. Our house now look like a shedding farm!

It is really hot over here too. I'm glad LS had my hair cut short as well. Phew!

After reading this, LS said she's really relieved that I don't shed.

Pee ess: I have an award for you.

NESSA the hovawart said...

Your hair cut is sooo lovable! I can imagine that it is much more suitable for this weather althow here is not hot yet.
I understand about lots and lots of hair every was like that with my late dear step mommy Bella..but with me it's much more easier becouse I don't have any sub coat..did I write it wright?
Kisses and hugs,

You look different Huskee. Definitely neater! Hershey, you are not alone. Chloe is blowing her fur too! And real soon, Megan & Orion/River will be blowing their fur too & it'll be a huge mess to clean up everyday. Hehehe! Good thing we have a part-time maid that comes in everyday now to help out with the housework.

Shedding is a sign of love!

Woo just want to share!


Abby said...

Hi, Huskee & Hershey...

I like it when my furs are shorter, too...I don't like the Spa, but I like the way I feel when I come home...

Hershey looks soooo sad...I know she hopes she will stop shedding soon...

Abby xxxooo

I heard furminator helps!

Comet and BLU said...

Our girl constantly lives in the house of hair. Comet and I have worked our schedules out so we never blow our coats at the same time. Glad you get to spend your time doing fun things and not getting groomed.


Ludo van Doggy said...

I'm doing the same as Hershey, ah well, it'll all be over soon.

Fenway said...

Isn't Hershey about a year old now, give or take a couple of months?

THIS is the time of the greatest coat blowing. Tell your mom that it gets better. Honest.

I'm molting like a parrot, but not the way I did when I got my new adult coat.

I think Hershey has learned the Innocent Face quite well. She looks like a BRILLIANT border collie with a lot of soul...just look at those eyes!

Your adoring pal,

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Just like you, I don't shed, buddy!
We handsome boys don't shed!
My pug brothers left their furry signatures everywhere, even on my daddy's proud mustache, hehe!

Simba and Jazzi said...

You look very handsome.

We know all about fur everywhere in our house. It is here all year round.

You do such cute things with that pink tongue, Huskee.

Woos, the OP Pack

Pedro said...


Tell your mom to try the Furminator. That really pulls out the shedding furs! My mom uses it on me just because I like the way it feels. My furs are so short that even when I shed it's not a problem. When Ziggy gets furminated you could make 3 small dawgs out of the fur!

Great pictures. We love your haircut..

Hi, Huskee!
Sounds like a hairy house!
I think my grandma would not be happy if I shed that much!
Here is very hot too!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Dear Huskee

You look rough and manly before your haircut! Now you looked boyish hehe!

My jiejie ask me to let your mum knows that she feels her pain, AND MORE!

Jiejie: Bee Bee sheds 24 hours per day and 7 days a week and 52 weeks per year.... u can find traces of her on my bed, my bag, my jeans and practically everything -_-"Cheers

Helios said...

My M says get the roomba. At least the fur's off the floor.

But I say, Fur is FANTASTIC!

Maggie and Mitch said...

We love our shorter hairecuts for the same reason, Huskee! We stay cooler!
Maybe your mom should knit a sweater with all of Hershey's fur!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Mason Dixie said...

that is a lot of fur flying around for sure, but it will be over soon. My Grandma puts the vacuum hose to Mabel to get the loose fur. hehe

Samantha ~ Holly and Zac ~ said...

LOL...yep we do shed a lot. It gets everywhere, it does keep the humans busy though with cleaning it up..hehe

Holly & Zac...XX

Moco said...

We all got a hair cut last week. The shorter fur is sure nice when the weather gets warm.

Mango said...

Yuck, my brother is a shedding machine too. Its everywhere; water, food, bed, bath, when will it end. Blowing around like tumbleweeds.

I hope a soak helps you get taller. You need it to keep up with you know who.
