      Recycling The Shed

      Shedding fur that is. Been brushing the heck on Archie lately. His undercoat is even fluffier than a labs and longer. Portions of the yard looked like a fur rug this morning. By this evening it's almost all gone. Little sparrows that been coming in droves to gather and line their nests. Their chicks are going to have some warm, soft beds.

      LOL, my neighbor came over and got me the other day, she said I got something to show you. I went over and she opens up a bush a little. Inside is a robins nest with eggs on a bed of yellow fur. Which Have been outside brushing him out almost daily. We laughed too cause there was also a pink ribbon wove all around and through the nest as well. Hemi is contributing to the baby bird welfare as well.

      Yup - went over Chloe with an undercoat rake on the front porch yesterday and 20 minutes later saw a little bird flying off with a big clump of fur in it’s beak.

      Gee whiz, I put the shed hair out too and I've never seen a bird come to get it or found a nest or house with it inside. Lucky you to see that.

      I put the fur out in my flower garden-it keeps deer out for a few days. Something weird in my house--Dakota is not shedding at all but China's fur is coming out in droves-its crazy. ..
