Destuffing Day









Help, I can't bear to look!


Don't get smug, Big Guy - your turn is coming too.

Are you done yet?  I really didn't have much to give up today.

Here, birdies - you might want this for your nests.

Hey Mom, will the recyclers let you bag leaves with furs???

I finally escaped that crazy rake.  I thought rakes were for leaves, not furs.

These leaves make a comfy bed for a sun pose.


We are staying right here at the top of the stairs so SHE can't put that brush to us.


Whose snooter is that?

We bet you guessed right - Phantom!

You can take my pic, Mom, but don't come near me with that eye ointment.



OK, Mom. Can you please split Phantom's treat into threes? He doesn't want anything today.


Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

Riley gets FURminated from time to time...I'm always amazed at how much fur comes off of her! It's like a whole nother puppy!

We hope Phantom is feeling good today!!

Phantom I hope you are doing OK buddy. I am lucky to have the short furs no raking for me. But it is nice you will help keep some birdies warm. Very kind and selfless of you.
Blessings,
Goose

McIver stayed with me the last couple of days and I brought out the rake. He LOVES it. He really enjoys having his back "scratched"! Our birdies will have black hair in their nest this year!

Mamma heartbeat

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

Holy Gwalk a MOLEY.... it looks like it SNOWED at your place. Now HOW are you supposed to keep WARM if she steals all your furs???

WOW! Look at this... fur SOME REASON I am able to comment today!!! Hope it continues!

The Websters said...

Well, I finally convinced Mrs. Master to get one of those robot vacuums so she doesn't attack me anymore with the rake. I hate that thing more than anything!

Well, not more than a bath.

Bridge and Dip love the rake but Elliot looks at you as if he is being murdered!
That must have been a big treat to split into 4.

How old is Phantom now? You know what? I have no idea how each of your pack came to live with you. Do you have their stories in an older post?

Ruby said...

Oh, I feels your pain guys!! I gots my furs clipped today, and she's not even DONE yet!! She said that she still needs to clip my leggies and face! Oh, does the torture EVER stop???? Ugggg.
Oh, Phantom, I hopes you feel like havin' a treatie laters.

Kisses,
Ruby

Ginger Jasper said...

Aww you do look good after your grooming though.. The birds will enjoy.. Hope Phantom wanted a treat later.. Hugs GJ xx

jen said...

Oh! I just had a thought! We should combine your beautiful white fur with our brown fur and make mittens!

Sending Phantom hugs and kisses:)

scotsmad said...

Don't you need ALL your fur for the upcoming winter?

XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

Our moms must be on the same wavelength because Mom just told Dad last night that I needed a good blow out. Ack!

rottrover said...

We love getting brushed, butt we don't like that Phantom doesn't feel like eating today. I know! I'll eat for him!!!

Jo's World said...

My Mom says I shed all year long and never run out of furs. She sees furs everywhere I walk, but when she goes to brush out more, none comes. Its a puzzlement is what it is.

Good luck with the treat scam you guys, you will be lucky to get a little piece maybe, or maybe Phantom will decide he wants the whole thing and you characters are out of luck . . .ha, ha

Your pal,
Stella

Reilly / Denny Cowspotdogs said...

Dear sweet Phantom - you simply MUST eat your treats - lots of them - you need a bit more weight. It just fair getting older :( :(

Madi and Mom said...

OH MY WOOS with all the furs flying I halfway expected another Woo to appear. Tell mom to save your furs then find someone to spin it into yarn. MOL/BOL Now that I'm Mayor I'm practicing my BOL
Hugs Madi

(A)FSS and Alasandra said...

We thinks Phantom's treats should be saved for when Phantom does want them.

We agree about being brushed. Why do the humans keep trying to steal our furs?

Shawnee the Shepherd said...

OMD! I thought those was stuffie guts but it be woo fur guts! Yikes!

Mitch and Molly said...

The birdies are going to be singing you praise for lining their nests with such nice warm fluff!

Love ya lots,
Mitch and Molly

finnhoward said...

But you all look so lovely after the raking!! Hope you got some good treats afterward!

BeadedTail said...

Our sisfur Sadie hated being raked too so Mommy was lucky to get it through her two or three times before she had enough. You all look so beawootiful though! Phantom, we hope you get to feeling better!

Amber DaWeenie said...

You should save all those furs and stuff 'em into a pillow. That would make a really nice bed.

Susie and Sidebite said...

Oh you guys are funny today, just like Mom's every where got to spoil a good day!

Your Furiends
Susie & Bites

There are times, when sleeping dogs are best left to sleep x x x

harrispen said...

So far Millie still has her puppy coat so there is no shedding yet!

Cindy

KB said...

I see that the older and wiser dogs kept their distance from the "rake"! I always love seeing Phantom, and I adored seeing him lying in the sun.

Labs don't shed quite so much, thank goodness!

chicamom85 said...

All that beautiful floofy, I bet it will make a soft bed for somebody. Mommy had a friend with a beautiful Sibe and she remembers the comb outs and all the floof in the breeze. I hope Phantom is feeling better with his booboo eye.

Loveys Sasha

p.s. that last picture made Mommy smile so big and out loud!

houndstooth said...

I bet some birds are going to be enjoying very cushy fur nests this winter!

Prancer Pie said...

You woofies sure look handsum after that brushing! How sweet of you to let the birdies use your beautiful furs for nests. XOXO

Mollie said...

Jake of Florida said...

We got raked...furminated...then plucked...then clipped on our underbellies...so we understand! But you four look fabulous!

Wirey love,
Jake and Just Harry

Priscilla said...

Oh dear, I know how you guys feel. I have that raking everyday!!!

Casey said...

Oh noes, did you get attacked by the furminator? The best part about having lovely short boxer furs is that I don't have to get brushed that much!

Marg said...

You three are conniving doggies, trying to leave Phantom out of the snacks. Love all the pictures, especially Phantom's snoot. Poor Ciara, getting all brushed but you do look pretty now. Have a great day.

Steffi said...

Oh, no!! They took your furs!! Our little Alpha is crazy - she tries to eat her fur after we brush it off.

Those leaves are pretty comfy! Glad you are all enjoying fall :)

Two French Bulldogs said...

At least you have hair to pull out. You should see when she brings the rake out for us
Benny & Lily

Remington said...

That is so nice of you to share your fur with the birdies....they really appreciate it! Great shots, my friends!

Misaki @ misadventuresofMisaki said...

Oh noes! Quick get the superglue and stick it back on BOL

Anna the GSD said...

Are you guys trying to make your own snows?!?! LOL

Sue said...

Our Mom has been threatening to get the clippers out. It's a good thing she's easily distracted.

dArtagnan Rumblepurr/Diego Hamlet Moonfur said...

Noooooo! Not your bootiful floofs!!

rumpydog.com said...

Why does Phantom have the pouty face?

Dexter said...

Destuffing sure is tiring. Our birds are fond of floof as well. I imagine it makes for a very cozy nest.

Kisses,
Dexter

T. Maxx said...

Oh my fur!!! It happened to me too...! ;-(

Cheers,
