Grooming Time

I didn’t think that chihuahuas shed. My first two didn’t, but for some reason the most recent addition Mike is a big shedder. He is not a long-hair but his fur is longer, and thicker around his neck than my previous two. So once a week my husband takes him downstairs to his workroom and puts him on his workbench, usually getting a good half to full cup of fur.

Needless to say, Mike absolutely does not look forward to this weekly ritual but is so sweet about it….standing there patiently.



After 30 mins. of (probably gritting his teeth) and staring at me, begging the question….


“Am I done yet?”



My husband hugs him and responds…..

“All done Mike, are we still friends?”

Still friends?


“Yeah, sure dad, just let me go back upstairs, puhleeze?”



Note to Mike…..same time and place next week kid!


  1. Mike is adorable, and a great pooch for letting your husband groom him! Macho sheds too, and he's been shedding a lot lately. I would assume he would shed in the spring/summer, but I guess his time is winter! Maybe it's a chihuahua thing?
