FRANKLIN FRIDAY: I BEEN SHED DING

Hi! Hi! Hi hi hi hihihihihihihi! It's me it's me it's me it's Franklin the Bordernese, and jeez louise all this shed ding must seize. What? Mom says it's not seize. It's cease. You wouldn't believe what it's like to live with some buddy who thinks she's the queen of grammer. I love Mom, but she don't know everything.

Shhh! Don't tell, but I learned a special word that tells about Mom being queen of grammer. It's called a delusion. Ha! Willy Dunne Wooters told me that word. I told Favorite Young Man. Favorite Young Man laughed.
Don't you dare tell Mom we laughed at her delusion.
I might not get a piece of cheese with my kibble.

Like I says, I been shed ding lots because it's so hot. I had so much fur falling out I was scared I'd be bald. All that fur was itchy, too. Mom said, Don't you worry, Best Buddy. I'll brush your hair. All the loose fur will come out, and you'll still have lots of hair left in your pretty coat.

So I cuddled up next to Mom, and she brushed.



And she brushed.


The brush scratched my itch. I got sleepy.


While I slept, the extra fur piled up on the rug.


When I woke up, I couldn't believe how much hair there was. Mom said she could make another dog out of it. I don't think she'd really do that, do you?




Mom said if I didn't mind, she'd brush some more. Okay by me.



Here's what happened:



I felt so much better.



I smiled big time. 

Now Mom says it's time for a bath. Uh-oh.

Okay I love you bye-bye.

P.S. Hey Every Buddy, Mom lifted something too heavy today. Her back hurts, so I have to take care of her. We'll read your comments as soon as we can. Don't worry. Mom will be fine. 

I had to go to the vet today for my check-up. I got a shot. Mom is the one who's hurt. She shoulda got a shot.



Pee Pee S: Ha I said pee. snicker snort 
Mom is fine now. I rubbed her back with my paws.

    1. Hi thehamish. I'm sorry Watson is sick. Mom saw a picture of a dog on the computer. She needs a home, and she looks just like me. I've never had a sister before. I get kinda tired of being the only dog.

  6. My dog loves to be brushed. I show him the brush and he heads for the door cuz he knows we always brush on the lawn next to the steps. We go out and he sits like a good dog until he sinks under the immense pleasure of the brushing.

    1. I know how your doggy feels. Brushing is so nice. It's a massage for doggies.

  7. That is a lot, A LOT of hair. Is there a Locks of Love for hairless dogs where you could donate all that excess fur?

    1. I don't think so, but my sister who lives far away said she'd like to make a sweater out of my fur. Maybe we should mail it to her.

  8. Hi, good buddy Franklin!

    Can we be Franklin with each other? Seems like these last few days have been the hottest of the whole summer. Mrs. Shady noticed I was hot and brushed me and gave me a bath and fed me cheese for being good. Today you feel much better and so do I. Hang on, good buddy. Only six more months until fall arrives in Florida!

    And remember...

    You're no buddy 'til some buddy loves you
    You're no buddy 'til some buddy cares
    You may be king, you may possess the world and it's kibble
    But kibble won't bring you happiness when you're growing old
    (and got no teeth and can't do nuthin' but nibble)
    The world still is the same, you'll never change it
    As sure as the stars shine above
    You're no buddy 'til some buddy loves you
    So find your self some buddy to love

    Yes, find your self some buddy to love!

    1. Gosh, Mr. Shady, that's the most bootiful comment ever. Mom is my buddy to love. It sounds like Mrs. Shady is your body to love. Mom says not to write that about Mrs. Shady, but I don't see anything wrong with it.

    1. Mom takes cloth bags to the grocery store. She says she could fill up all her bags with my fur. Collies just have to shed.

  12. Good to hear you felt so much better. The queen of grammer... Is that a fact haha

    1. I don't know if it's a fact. It's what Mom thinks, and she's kinda nuts.

      Delete
    2. Well, she's sweet too. I wouldn't trust any person who isn't a bit nuts. ;) I may be biased.

      Delete
    3. She's not all that sweet, but she gives me my dinner.

  13. Cute tale! It is not easy being a dog in the summertime, That is why we give our Shelby a "pixie" cut. At least now the rogue fur is only 1/2 inch long and does not clog the vacuum.

    1. I'm no pixie. I'm a Bordernese, if you please.

  17. Hi Franklin! You're too cute... shedding and all.... even if it would make me sneeze. :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. That is alot of hair!!!! I know when I have dogs here that are long-haired dogs I can brush and brush and brush and still have gobs of fur coming out. I know what your mom means Franklin, when she said she could make another dog out of it! But you're all the dog she needs so don't worry. Glad you are helping her with her back. Hope she's feeling better real soon!
