|Henry: "Look at all that fluff."|
|Henry: "I wonder where it all came from?"|
|Henry: "Momma, Zachary's losing his fur."|
|Zachary: "What? No… wait…"|
|Zachary: "Quick, glue it back on!"|
Note: If you have a Golden Retriever with a luxuriously thick coat during the winter (like Henry) then you will have a floor (furniture, clothes, food…) covered in the soft stuff the following spring.
They shed again in the fall, but as their coats are much thinner over the summer there is less to "share".
Henry, being the generous boy that he is, contains to shed at a much-lower-but-still-noticeable (on the floor, the furniture, me…) level the remainder of the year as well.
Sooo if you don't like hair on your floor, your clothes, your furniture, your meals, and you - then a Golden Retriever is definitely NOT the dog for you.

Nothing says Changing Seasons quite like a shedding dog.
This is actually the second, and must smaller, brushing today.
I raked 2-3 times this much out of Henry at lunch, stupidly throwing the fluff away before realizing how perfect it would be for today's challenge.
Never fear, there was plenty more where that came from, and will be for weeks to come.
Thankfully, Henry adores the undercoat rake (green handled thingie) and does a happy dance every time I get it out, pushing against it in pure delight as I comb.
As for Zachary, since he doesn't grow a heavy undercoat his shedding stays at a manageable level.
