we've been furminated!

ya'll prolly remember that my mama is kinda sorta a cheap skate.  heehee.  well, she finally broke down and bought one of those furminator thingies that cost a pile of green papers.  apparently my blondie furs were gatherin' everywhere, and mama was gettin' a smidge cranky pants.  anywho, i got furminated, and it felt sooooo good!  even my big sis asa, who doesn't have very many furs to begin with, got a mini furmination!  we love how smooth 'n shiny our furs looked afterwards.  also, mama can already tell that there are WAY less of my blondie furs in the house, which means mr. vacuum gets to stay in his cave more often.  now that's what i call a win-win situation!!

bwuahaha!  it looks like i tooted out a mega fur ball!
asa's ponderin' exactly how many furs she shed.


Sam said...

Maybe our Mom needs to break down and buy one!


Erin said...

We've been dying to buy one but the price put us off. I have to vacuum twice a day sometimes & we go through Lint rollers like crazy to get the hair off our clothes.

Hoke said...

Oh no!!! You got one of those things too!? She took all my fur away with it too and now when I wiggle up against her I leave nothing on her clothes!!! Drats!!

Frankie Furter said...

BaaaaWaaaah you tooted a Floof!!

I have a furminator and I love that thingy. I am glad that You and Asa like yours. I think that ANYTHINGY that keeps Vacula in his cave.. is a darn wonderful thingy FUR sure!!!

Ann said...

My mom is a cheap skate too and she hasn't bought me one of those. Being a Westie I don't really shed though so I at least she doesn't get cranky pants over that one.

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

We have one of those furminator thingies too, but Mom only uses it once in a while. She thinks it breaks our furs. Maybe that's because our coats are so much longer and thicker and we have that undercoat too. None of us really likes it very much, but we know a lot of other pups love it. You and Asa both look great so it must have worked well.

Maybe you can make yourselves a little AsaBooker puppy with all that fur.

Lola and also Franklin, too said...

Did it hurt? Was it scary? My Moms could end up getting one of these, so we really need to know if we should worry. We might not be as brave as you and Asa. We do notice that you seem to be unharmed. We're very glad about that.

Zona said...

My mom has been thinking of one of these but worries we (I especially) would be skeered... is is skeery???

Nervous wags,

Cyndi and Stumpy said...

Booker, you look more handsome than ever and Asa looks beautiful, too! Stumpy gets furminated regularly.

The OP Pack is right, though. It will break hairs on a thick coat.

Happy, Waggin' Tails, FUREVER!
Stumpy and me

Zona said...

Okay, I just looked it up - doesn't look to alarming! I thought it was the vacuuming kind!! Whew!


houndstooth said...

You should see our yard after Morgan gets furminated! Dad furminated Morgan Saturday before Easter and it looked like the Easter Bunny Massacre had happened in our front yard. Getting rid of all that hair feels great, doesn't it?


sprinkles said...

That's a lot of furs, Booker! How do you have any left? I once met a guy who said that he saved his dog's hair and had it made into a sweater. I thought that was kinda weird.

Oh yes, I cleaned the carpets yesterday and already I can see dog furs all over the floor. I was just commenting to a friend about that today - needing to vacuum again already.

Tessa the Maltese said...

You also look very pleased with your fur tooting self! BOL

Asa on the other paw looks very sad to see her furs go.

I sure am glad to see you so happy!

woos, Tessa

Anny said...

Anny said...

i am the thinkings.. we got conned... by the people who tells us that us poods are hypoallergenic... SHE got conned. *LOL*


The Life of Riley said...

My mum's been wondering about those furminator things. She hates getting the vacumn out (we told her that it scares us) but everyday we manage to leave more and more fur around the place and she is loosing the fur war!

Mr. Pip said...

My mom SO WANTS one of those furminator things!

Your pal, Pip

jen said...

You two look fabulous!
We have heard good things about the furminator, but our mom is afraid of it, she thinks it will make us bald!

rottrover said...

BOL Booker!! You tooted a giant furball!! You are one funny guy! We love our furminator. It took Ruby a while, but me and Bart showed her how gooood it feels, now she follows Mom outside as soon as Mom gets the furminator out of the drawer!!

Rottie Kisses,

CreekHiker / HollysFolly said...

You know, even the cheaper "furminator" rip offs work... for WAY fewer green papers! We swear by ours!!!

Priscilla said...

That's a lot of fur from you and Asa! Do you feel much lighter and cooler?

My mom uses brushes on me. I can't tell whether I like being brushed or not. I like getting her attention but I don't like being brushed when the outside world is so interesting. I can't run around and I am pinned down all the time she thinks she's doing a big favour for me.

Teddy Bear said...

Are you saving all those furs for a special Booker and Asa pillow? We love the Furminator at our house.:)

scotsmad said...

Booker Man, you look like you're sitting next to a fluffy cat or angora rabbit or something! BOL!

Glad that vacula doesn't have to come out much.

XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

bichonpawz said...

Waggin at ya,

Jake of Florida said...

We get furminated regularly and give up a huge pile of furs.It does feel kind of good -- and we look so sharp afterwards! As do you!

Wirey woofs,

Jake and Just Harry

Corbin said...

BOL! If mom used that on me, I'd be bald! Send some of your furs my way!

Sagira said...

We got our Furminator off Ebay and it wasn't that bad and is so worth it when you see huge piles of fur like that. :)

Oskar said...

You guys look great. My kitties get furminated, but I have to get groomed at the groomer, bummer.

Nubbin wiggles,

Pee-s, I love your toot cloud!

Bailey Be Good! said...

Wowserz! That's a lot of furrrs!

Better not show this post to my mommy, or she might get some ideas!

Glad I stopped by -- I'm a new follower!

Happy Friday woofs & hugs!


Lorenza said...

Looks like you really liked it!
Hmmm... not so sure about Asa!
Happy weekend!
Kisses and hugs

Jazzi said...

Jazzi and Addy

Mango said...

I love the furminating too! But I still manage to leave plenty Mango around the house.


K9 Katastrophie said...

Hi Asa, you look exceptionally beautiful!!! But you look beautiful all of the time!


Kristin G. said...

LOL!! Careful what you toot there Booker. I'm surprised to see it worked on Asa too. Maybe we need to invest in one of those machines, as dog fur everywhere has been known to give me a case of the cranky pants too. :) Happy weekend to you all!

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Mama got our furminator from Ebay, too, for about 1/2 the OTC price. She's a little scared of it, though, because of the razor. So she doesn't use it on us very much. But thanks to your reminding her, we're afraid we're about to get worked over again. Although, thanks to the OP & Stumpy, Jed will be quick to point out he as longish, thickish fur that would certainly be damaged in the process. So all is not hopeless.

Jed & Abby

Wyatt said...

You 2 should stuff a pillow or maybe a quilt...just sayin'


Joe Stains said...

Sorry about the Furmination :) Thanks for stopping by Joe's blog and commenting, we appreciate it.

Remington said...

Beth said you should spin it up and knit some mittens....

Sugar the Golden Retriever said...

Woof! Woof! You guys looks GREAT! That furmi thing is wonderful n what a great invention ... (my mom wish she did). Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Madi and Mom said...

MOL Booker and Asa!! OMC I thought you had a new sibling. It is amazing even with you rather short coats how much Mom was able to get.
You both look very dapper/gorgeous.
Hugs Madi

Elyse and Riley said...

Haha, the furball toot! Riley gets FURminated regularly--especially in the spring and summer. She got FURminated today. I got a ton of fur off of her. Since Riley has an undercoat, I can get bunches of fur off of her. Chloe has fur like Asa and we barely get anything off of her (even though she sheds all over the place).

You two look great!

I have a confession to make...we had TWO pieces of cheesecake! Ack! One was a Chocolate Coconut Cream Cheesecake and the other was a Reese's Peanut Butter Cheesecake...they were both SOOOO good! I especially liked the coconut one. Thanks for the birthday wishes!

Have a great week! (Try to stay out of trouble...hehe!). :)

Elyse and Riley

Sarge said...

Hey Booker Man!
Wow, you and Asa look great! I love my furminator too...Talk about a great scritch!! That thing manages to rub me just right.
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

mayziegal said...

Hi, hi, Booker! Oh, gosh, I've missed you something awful! Heehee! It's so funny we both had Furminator posties. Do you think your mom and my mom are psychic-lee connected or something? Cuz my mom never thought too much about buying a Furminator until last Thursday when she bought the one for the kittehs! And we hadn't even read your postie. How super bizzarro is that?

Anyways, you and Asa both look pawsitively glowing after your furmination.

Wiggles & Wags,
