5 pounds lighter
Perhaps you hadn't noticed, but Pete and Reggie have been looking a bit scruffy lately:
With the warmer temperatures, their thick, downy, winter undercoats have started to work their way to the surface of their fur, giving them an unkempt and matted look, especially around their necks. This simply won't do:
It's time for their spring brushing!
Pete went first. Mostly because he was the first to walk by me and I grabbed him:
Ooooh, it felt sooo satisfying to be able to get all this on my brush:
Reggie appeared out of nowhere to provide a comforting t-bone hit to Pete's side:
Then it was Reggie's turn:
Pete reciprocated Reggie's earlier kindness with a neck sniff and repeated nibbling on the brush in my hand:
Reggie was able to relax and tell me all of his problems while I worked the knots out of his neck:
His favorite part, though, was when I just held the brush up against his forehead and he was able to scratch his own itch by moving his head up and down:
Now the boys are sleek and slender looking:
I sure wish a good spring brushing would do this for me.
