Yes, the Lab Brats are shedding like wild beasts and the routine of vacuuming every three days has now turned into an every day even in order to keep up with the furry tumbleweeds all over the house. I kid you not!
We brush the dogs every week with a shedding blade and alternate with the Furminator. This work beautifully as the backyard becomes a chocolate fluffy haven of tumbleweeds rolling up and the wind will usually carry it up and over the fence (to our neighbors yard on accident `laugh`). However, no matter how much we brush or vacuum, the little buggers show up like a long lost family member looking for money.
Every night our Labrador Retrievers go to sleep in their crates and we wake in the morning to find clumps of butt fur right in front of our bedroom door. It is like Hansel and Gretel were visiting and ran out of breadcrumbs.
How do we know it is fur from their butts? We can see it coming out in clumps right at their tails where they have huge tufts of fur. Every day we pull the lose clumps by hand and throw them in the garbage.
Do the dogs have allergies or some sort of weird disease? No way! They are “English” Show Labrador Retrievers and with their beautiful build and blockheads come very dense coats… I just wish they would leave their leftover furry belongings somewhere else!
