It has been years since we have had a dog around, but last Christmas our children’s wonderful aunt decided to bless us with a cute little Boxer puppy! Now years ago we had a Boxer Dog named Scootch, he was a wonderful dog and addition to our family, but unfortunately he had banged his head really hard on the coffee table and began to have seizures. This led to weeks of stress for him and unfortunately he did not make it through. It took us awhile to work through it, but it was definitely about time for a new furry family member!
All of the kids adore Tucker and he is so tolerant of my 9 month old baby girl tugging and pulling all over him. He just lays there and loves her sweet attention. It’s so very cute!
Seeing how it has been years since I have had to manage an animal, I had soon forgotten about shedding! We are now in the season of warm weather and what comes with the warmer weather for your pet? The endless amount of hair that is shed! It is literally driving this mom up the wall. My baby girl is crawling now and this leaves me with no other option but to clean, clean and clean! All through the day, countless amount of times running the vacuum over the floors and the dog (yes Tucker loves to be vacuumed) and you can only give so many baths before it dries out the dogs skin. So needless to say, YES I WAS GOING CRAZY!
My sister-in-law introduced me to the FURminator! I made fun of it at first because of the name, but who wouldn’t? I went to Amazon and read all of the reviews. My sister-in-law uses this on her cats and she swears by it and now I am here to swear by it and to share my saviFUR with you!
The FURminator available at Amazon:
- Innovative grooming tool for long- and short-haired dogs and cats
- 1-2/3-inch stainless-steel edge quickly and easily removes loose undercoat

I also decided to go on and buy the FURminator deShedding waterless spray! I figured that it couldn’t hurt at this point and I needed something to help me with all of this darn fur!

I absolutely love both of these items. You would not believe how much hair that I have collected from just the first use! Me and my FURminator friends here are going to get along very well around my house. And just so you know, I am in love with the scent of the FURminator deShedding Waterless Spray, it smells like he just stepped out of the bath, clean and ready to be pet!
I did not receive anything for this post, I am a fan of this product and I wanted to share this wonderful pet grooming tool with you!
