Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

So he is in full coat blow again and this week I realized that I have become a crazy tuft-plucking lady!

On our walk, Rumo will be sniffing a bush...I see a big long tuft or two hanging and I just have to reach out and pull it out! It is soooo satisfying. Passersby must think I am nuts, bending over and plucking his fur when he stops! Even if he is peeing!?

It’s like I can’t stop myself!
Luckily Rumo is tolerant of his obsessive-compulsive plucking owner...even when I pull on fur that is still attached...honestly, I don’t know how he puts up with me!

Feel like this may be the only place where anybody would understand my disorder...ha ha. he Is good with regular brushing, but the plucking is just weirdly satisfying...feeling that big soft clump of fur come right out in your fingers...
Help, I have to go to Husky Pluckers Anonymous!

Hi, my name is Jimmy, and I'm a fur pluckaholic Razz

In my backyard at this moment is a pile of plucked tufts that I pulled out of Kohdi when I sat with him last night, LOL.

Oh lord I do this to Mia ALL the time! My husband gets mad because I do it so much! Lukas coat seems to either hide the tufts of fur or somehow sheds them before I can see them but Mias not so lucky.
I didn’t choose the tuft life, the gift life chose me.

This made me chuckle! I have been brushing and plucking a month straight. Washed them out in a kiddie pool with de-shedding shampoo and then really went to town on grabbing all their hair out. Even my 4 and 6 year olds have picked up on pulling the tufts of hair ???? I think plucking is almost done. Just the bottom sides are letting loose now.

Happy Plucking to all

I take my comb out on walks with me and comb him out. The local farmer must think somethings been at his sheep as I'm leaving great big piles of fuzzy fur everywhere.
