THE SHEDDING HAS STARTED????????
Nope. Still riding on puppy coat over here...... (I think...?)
Baloo - 5 year old black lab
Peanut - 7 year old minpin
Monster - 3-ish year old frenchie/jack, rescue
Oh my, not again, Gollum has just finished shedding :P
But the weather is different here i think (and hope ;D)
Actually no, mine haven't started yet.... the horses have been shedding their summer coat for a few weeks now..... I noticed that, and that makes me sad that winter is coming. I'm not ready yet !
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
Started? Mine never stopped I vacuum up enough hair each week to stuff a king size matress
It will be interesting to watch what Balloo and Hershey Kisses do in this next month. I think I have come to the conclusion that HK does not have the true Lab coat. At least an undercoat is not obvious to me. I have noticed that she is shedding quite a bit of her outer (only) coat. I don't know if this is a seasonal shed, a progression in the coat from puppy to adult, the result of her food change. I will be watching.
We get a lot of comments about how smooth, soft, and shiney her coat has been. (And it is!) If we see a change in the appearance of her coat, we may begin the search for a different feed or supplements.
Hershey Kisses, In charge of getting Ed out to the dog park so that he gets some exercise.
Same thing here with Dakota..white bathroom floor, where they sleep at night..is littered with his fur..just the outer hairs..I don't think field labs have the thick coats bench labs do, but I have noticed there is more hair there every morning. His coat is just like HK's, soft, smooth and shiny. My dog trainer asked what I fed, and I told her Innova LB puppy, plus fish oil, 1 egg a week..she said that's why his coat was so nice.

Dakota's isnt so bad, but Willow.....
I think some days Dakota is wearing more of Willow's hair than he is his own.
Nope, mine are growing coat for winter.

Riley never stopped shedding either. I could vacuum every day and would still have yellow hair everywhere.....even in the fridge .
