The unsolicited — and wildly enthusiastic — endorsements that I got for the FURminator de-shedding tool in the comments section of several of my grooming posts caught the attention of the folks at the company that manufacturers it. They offered me one of their new, deluxe models, with a sleek ergonomic handle design and FURejector button, to try.
Frankie would be completely bald if I used a FURminator on him so, instead, I’m going to give it away to someone who really needs it. Someone with a very hairy dog.
How hairy is very hairy? Well, that’s what I’d like to know. The winner of this tool needs to convince me that his or her dog is the most deserving of the FURminator by sending in a comment that completes the following sentence: My dog is so hairy that…
You can tell the truth, but you don’t have to. For example, “My dog is so hairy that you could blanket the bottom of the Grand Canyon with what she sheds” is a perfectly acceptable answer.
The contest starts today, March 3, and ends at midnight, March 7, Mountain Time. Winners will be announced March 9.
I’ll be out in Portland, OR, checking out local dog facilities — and ok, the city’s amazing restaurants, microbreweries, bookstores… — but I’ll be posting comments daily so as to avoid duplication.
Good luck, all my furry friends!
