Furry Gals Like Shiny Furry Guys

MARCUS:   We are glad to have the opportunity for Merci to test a new dual dog brush on her thick winter coat.  She's the only long-haired dog among us, so she's elected, but definitely not happy about it.

MERCI:  No!  I don't want my winter coat brushed out yet.  It could freeze again and I would be cold. 

BUDDY:  You know Jan never listens to us.  You have to test the Furminator Dual Brush Chewy sent us. But it isn't doing a very good job, is it?  You have mounds of undercoat to comb through.

MERCI:  It wasn't working very well because my coat is so thick, so Jan used a rake type brush instead.  And afterward she used the bristle brush side to make my coat shiny and pretty.  I can say the pin brush side doesn't have sharp tips.  It didn't hurt my skin when she tried it on my coat. 

SAM:  Well, at least I'm safe.  I have a short, thin coat and sensitive skin.  I don't like to be brushed and I don't mind telling Jan so.

RUSTY:  Hey, I'm not a dog! Wait, that feels good. Keep it up, Jan.

NOTE:  Rusty generally has an undercoat like Merci's so Jan thought she would try the brush on him.  But this spring his coat is thin and flyaway fine.  Really soft.  Rusty gets excited and has to eat while being brushed or he "bites" Jan. 

CYNDI:  I don't care if you need one of us to actually test the brush.  I have a  thin, medium length coat and the pin brush isn't helpful.  You may, however, gently use the soft brush to massage me.

PERCY:  Oh, dear, Jan must be doing something wrong. Where's the package for it?

MICAH:  Over here.  Jan assumed the pin brush side would be for a long hair dog, but it says it's for a short, silky coat type.  Someone should teach her to read.

MERCI:  Or find her reading glasses.  We don't have a dog with a short, silky coat, so we can't test it properly.  Wait, correction.  The pin side is for a silky coat and the bristle side is for short hair. We can find some volunteers to try the nylon bristle brush side.  That can be used on any coat.

SAM:  I protest!  Well, okay, but only around my head.  You know how I hate to have my back brushed.

BUDDY:  Same here.  Head and shoulders only.  Have to look good for my friends.

MARCUS:  Go ahead.  Brush me, Jan.  But don't interrupt my soccer game.  And don't brush out the mud from my coat.  You'd ruin my reputation.  So when I stop, you brush.  When I nose-kick the ball, try not to fall on your face so you can resume brushing at the next "break".

MERCI:  Well, that was almost a disaster, Jan.  What would you do without us to save you from your mistakes? 

BUDDY:  This brush is intended to remove mats, tangles and loose hair.  Also debris.  Marcus prefers to keep his debris but Jan brushed him anyway.

MARCUS:  Jan said the brush was easy to hold onto and even to use on a moving target.  *tilts head to look at Merci*  Is she referring to me?

SAM:  Furminator recommends starting with a brush such as the Dual Brush, and finishing with a comb for a shiny coat. I don't think I need a shiny coat.  Unless furry girls like shiny furry guys.  Hmmm, how do you furry females feel about shiny male fur? sent us the brush to try but we were not paid nor told what to say.  We are just to give an honest review.

The cats have a separate post to do soon.  Stay tuned.

Oh, and we're thankful to be able to post this Thursday after being missing from the blog hop for a couple of months.

  2. I bet you were exhausted after chasing them down Jan! Good to see your post this morning.

  3. Good try pals. I have the regular Furminator, land enjoy getting brushed while outside in the summer. But DON'T try brushing me in the winter with it or I'll get you! Maybe this brush would be a good one for short-haired cats.

  4. Hi Y'all!

    That's an interesting lookin' brush.

    Y'all come on by,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

  5. Good review. I love to be brushed but Chancy don't won't anything touching him but hands and mostly just Mumsy's. Hugs and nose kisses

  6. Well, I would have assumed that the pin side was for longer hairs too, but maybe that would that pull too much? Good thing the dogs could read the directions to Jan. I have brushes for Mickey Mouser in many places around the house, and he's groomed a lot. I'll look forward to your post about the cats' reactions.

  7. Pipo is a brush biter, MOL!
    He purrs while he bites...go figure!

    Minko loves all theattention, brush, comb, rubs...mayb not the butt brushing, though.

    You kitties and pups look good!

    We didn't realizes brushes had such specific uses!

  8. We don't use a brush unless it is right after a haircut. Mom just combs us. That was a very good review!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley
