Dog Days of Summer #10 - Wet Fur

It's August 10th, and today's installment of the Dog Days of Summer is 'Wet Fur'. 

As 'doodles, we actually have hair, rather than fur.  No really.  There are at least 36 different breeds (not including 'mutts' such as my sister and myself) who have hair rather than fur.  Generally it means we don't shed (or not much), and instead require haircuts.  But hair or fur, it gets wet.

Abby is all about wet hair...

SOMEBODY required a bath after a close encounter of the poo variety at day care... She was NOT happy.

Heehee!  What's the point of the interwebs if you can't post humiliating pictures of your sister? 

Here is Abby's preferred wet hair style...

Just out of the pond, tennis ball in mouth.
In my humble opinion, when she gets soaking wet like that, her tail looks kinda wimpy.  Which is why Mom keeps our tails long and floofy...

This is more my kind of wet hair...

It's really awesome when I go back inside and melt all over the floor, or the blankets on the bed... Mom LOVES it.  She must.  I mean, she keeps letting us frolic in the snow... Heehee!

Stay cool my friends!

Oh, those are sad and sorry wet doggie photos and how horribly rude to post the bath photos!

Interesting. Mom says we have hair all over the rug. Wonder if it's fur?

Wet is good! Unless a bath is involved. Snow wet is the BEST!

Mom says I get dog hair on everything, especially her dark-colored business suits. She says I shed a ridiculous amount. I like everything in the house to be coated with a layer of my hair - I mean fur.
