I went out today and went to town on Flash with my shedding blade. I took about 300 tons of fur off. :floor Just kidding - it wasn't that much. Maybe 1 ton at the most. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif Anyway, it had to been so itchy for him to carry around that much dead hair. But, it's gone now and he SURVIVED his bath, poor baby. :floor I don't know that he's ever seen a shedding blade before in his life and he didn't really enjoy the bath that much. But, it's all good. I gave him a flea dip, got the two or three remaining fleas off of him with the flea shampoo and the flea comb. I'm hoping Advantage works like it's supposed to. He seems MUCh happier now. Anyway, I'm posting a few random shots I took after his bath. He has to wait to go back in his crate because I am washing his bed that MIGHT have had fleas on it, too. I'm just being very proactive because I do NOT want him to have to live with those again.
