Blowing Coat

First off, thank you to Quay Po Cooks for becoming a follower of my site!

Well, what's new at our place?

It's coat-blowin' time! These dogs shed like it's their job.

Who? Me?

To quote the Misinthropic Shiba

"Shibas don’t shed; they do the canine version of Hiroshima.

It is somewhat disconcerting to find your sleek little dog resembling a Brillo Pad. In the space of a few days, your house is filled with downy little mats that strain your coffee and add substance to your food. People start smiling condescendingly at you and ask if you happen to have a dog. Your carpet goes from dark brown to a light cream color.

THIS is just one small pile of shiba inu fur after Kobe has been brushed. You can get a massive pile of it.

Time to brush the other side...that's correct.......only one side has been done and this goes on all week. Supposedly shiba blow coat twice a year. That's the massive super-power blowing of coat....but he sheds a bit all year. Not this bad but still.

"Ask not what your Shiba can do for you; ask why the hell did you get one"

Still, I couldn't do without them.

And not as an afterthought....but this cream shiba does her share of blowing hair around too......just not with the passionate vigor Kobe puts into it.

That was a shiba update!


  1. Happy 4th of July to you and your family!!!

    Your shibas are feeling light today after that awesome brushing they received.


  2. OMG, and I thought my mom's yellow lab was bad! Whoa!

    Lovely photos!

  3. Thanks Velva!!

    WC, Right? They shed something awful. I have an email started to you. I am sooo slow :-)

  4. I will never complain about our cat shedding again! :)

  5. Oh my - that's loads ... they should be bald after loosing all that! Not that I'm wishing the hirsute little darlings bald ;o)


Welcome and thank you so much for visiting. If I don't answer you here I will get back to you on your blog. Also have had to switch to approving comments due to some SPAM lately. Alas...

It's been a good run...........
