One event that signals the dog days of fishing is my dog leaves enough hair in the house to weave a rug. Recently I saw a blade brush with four rings in a feed store. Well, the difference is astounding. In just 5 minutes of brushing, I removed more hair than I did in the last 2 weeks with the single shedding blade. The dog loves it, there is noticeably less hair in the house, and my wife is moving on to other canine issues. The brush is a Decker, Curry Comb Spiral Spring Brush, #15S. It has teeth on both sides and has a plastic handle. Try your local feed store, or go to PetSmart. The brush sells for about $6.00. Or go to www.ruralking.com, type Curry Comb in the search.
