Fur craziness

Who can imagine that a greyhound would not be perfect.  After all, they have lovely body shapes, lovely brown eyes, velvet ears, those coveted long faces, skinny tails, and speed, speed, speed.  So after itemizing all this perfection, why am I labeling this blog post as "fur craziness"?

I am not complaining about all these things that make them so lovely, and regal, and fun, and loving.

These characteristics are what we love to rave about.

Beautiful Fleur...What's not to love about this face?

So what am I raving about?

It's not ME who was was Fleur mostly.

Me?  Why are you accusing me of raving?
The accusation is like this:    animals brings on a shed of the fur.

This is normal, and expected, so WHAT is the problem?

The main problem is that Fleur didn't like a hair brush.  No brush, no type, no brand, no way!
When the brush came out, she went the other way, and when she was on the other end of a leash, she stayed as far away as the leash allows. When the brush went through her fur, she began to shake, and shiver, and skip about, and finally she snapped!

Fleur never bit me or anyone else, but she would snap to relieve her feelings!

Power likes being brushed, and will lean into the brush, and practically purr!

Chica is sitting on Power's leash while he is getting brushed!

Chica is very loving of being brushed and asks for it each evening!
Nothing keeps the fur from finding each and every crevice!


  1. We have fur bunnies that grow to monstrous proportions. You can brush Blue for 2 hours straight and he'll still shed like crazy. He sheds enough hair for 4-5 greyhounds.

  2. At least you don't have German Shepherds at your house! lol Although I am happy to say that they both like being brushed a lot. How does Hera feel about the brush? Bunny and Flattery both enjoy it.
