Rub-a-dub-dub, two-Huskies-in-a-tub...part 3!

So, we are finally done with spring grooming...all FiveSibes have now been blown, de-shedded (partially), shampooed, brushed, trimmed, and made beautiful! Our groomer came to the house and made a "spa day" for Chloe and Harley (only someone forgot to tell them "spa day" is a good thing. They weren't too happy getting bathed and brushed). Of course, with the temps soaring well up into the humid 90's, all they wanted to do is climb into their dirty mud holes, go swimming, and then climb back into their dirty mud holes. However, I have foiled their plan as they've been inside in the A/C for about two days straight, and tomorrow will be the same. So, I am still happily basking in the glory of having five clean, sweet-smelling, fluffy least for a few days! 

While the groomer was busy blowing out their coats, the air swirled with "snow," a/k/a flying, floating Sibe fur! We gathered up as much as we could and are saving it until the Sibes finish shedding for the summer. Then, we will package it up and send on down to help in our small way to clean up the oil spill in the Gulf. Are your Sibes shedding yet?

Even though I am glad my Sibes are clean, that does not say much for the house. Since it's too hot and humid for them to be outside playing and running and doing all things Husky, they have pulled out every toy they own and rather ambitiously mauled them all. I have stuffed animal guts sprawled from one end of the house to the other. Here Bandit sits amongst "HER" stolen goods. It's pretty safe to say that the Sibes fought the toys, and the toys lost! Until next time...stay cool!


  1. I'm just starting to puff out in my shoulders!

    SOOOO, have all of woo replace what was stolen yet?


  2. Wait a minute - they stay clean for days after a bath??? We are lucky to get hours.

  3. Your house looks a lot like ours - stuffies and toys scattered everywhere. We are all blowing our coat bigtime. Mom has been brushing and plucking for days now. We will soon be off to the groomer for her to finish the work. We were really surprised to see even our little sister blowing her puppy coat so young.

    You look wonderful.

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

  4. Woooos! Shedding like a Husky here too... Mom made me have a bath yesterday, she said I stunk.... silly mom, I was only rolling in some nice smelling stuff, I have avoided the dreaded de- furring so far, but I fear it will be today!

  5. Shedding -- what's that -- ha ha!

  6. That is a nice thing to do with the excess fur.

    Wow, that is a lot of toys!
