De-Fluffing the Deck
Do you like the white accumulation on our deck? No, it's not snow. It's not from a tree either. This is why malamutes should not be allowed in your house. We can get this amount of fluff from dearest Kona (actually a malamute-husky cross) every two days for the month of June. Like all huskies or malamutes, she has a double coat, with black and grey guard hairs and an undercoat of soft white fur. The poor dog is panting in the summer temperatures now, wishing for those days of snow and ice!
She doesn't particularly enjoy the brushing, but the end result will be appreciated by both dog and people.
