That pile next to her is her undercoat. Huskies "blow their coats" in summer to regulate their temperatures. Their coat is their "heating and air unit", if you will. You can't shave them, it would kill them. So, brush we must.
For the record, this is the third pile we pulled off of her. We are halfway there.
So now you know what it will be like each summer, if you ever decide to get one of these. : )
I also thought it a good conversation blog, no?
