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.

Hey guys...how much fur is too much. I'm getting a ton of hair out of delilahs brushings...I'm just being a worried mom I'm sure, but I feel like a grocery bag full of hair so much. It's just recent..is she just blowing?

Probably is just blowing coat! The only time at which i'd worry is if there is bald spots in her coat.

It wasn't uncommon for one pass over Appa's rear-end to completely FILL our slicker brush when he was blowing. At first we thought it was a ton coming out of him, then it got worse.

This was from my wife simply petting him for a few seconds (literally, maybe 20 seconds) in the morning. Not brushing. Petting. We brushed him twice a day while he was blowing and every time it seemed impossible that much could come out. We stopped due to a tired arm and ornery dog, not because the hair stopped coming. Now we brush him once a day and barely get anything out of him. Good luck.
