Dear people who read this Livejournal,

Somebody come save me.

Here I am, Master Danger, minding my own business, living my life. Barking at the dogs next door (who need me to come through that fence and teach them a lesson, but I am Not Allowed), barking at crows and other birds, alerting L to the passing of large trucks and schoolbusses, hogging the fan, requiring treats and attention at regular intervals. You know, the usual.

But it is ALSO that time of year when I start to lose my undercoat. As a double-coated animal, I have a white fur coat underneath my red fur, and when it's time to blow coat, huge chunks of white fur lift off my skin, just waiting for a good time to drop and turn into fur tumbleweeds. But until then, sure, I look a little ragged.

So my owner has tried to brush me, which, NO THANK YOU. I've expressed my displeasure by gentle snapping -- I'm not really trying to make contact -- and so L has resorted to... picking at me. Like, I think I'm going to get my 30 seconds of petting followed by a treat, but instead of petting, she pulls out fur chunks.


So I'm making myself available for other offers. I don't want to live with other dogs, cats, children, or really people, but I don't want to be alone either. So work that out amongst yourselves and then SAVE ME.

Master Danger

Master Danger,

We had a lovely shepherdy-girl who likewise would lose her undercoat in the summertime, and waves of fur would fill the backyard. She didn't like being brushed, either, but in the end, did enjoy it once all the underfur was gone! So try to tolerate it, you'll feel better when it's done!

Dear Wildrider,

It's true that having the loose hair gone isn't wholly awful. Still, it's the principle of the thing.
