Shedding

So, you want a husky. You know they're furry.
You know they shed twice a year.
But... do you know what shedding looks like?


Look at them furry beauties, you say. 
How bad can shedding be? 
How much spare fur can they be carrying?
THIS MUCH.



Yes, its THIS MUCH


That's from one session of brushing the 3 tyrants. 
I repeat, ONE brushing session.
Technically that's fur from 2.5 dogs, because Gamby wasn't shedding much and she's not keen to be held and brushed. But Togo and Tagar produced roughly a dog of fur each.




If you're thinking - cool, there's enough fur to make a whole dog - you're wrong.
There's enough fur to make TWO full dogs. That dog is only half a bucket, but I can't make another because the tyrants keep messing up my 'artwork'.


Using all the fur might get you a dog bigger than Togo. 
I say might because I couldn't get all that fur into a dog shape - it keeps looking like a mutant rabbit!
