A Little Girl, Her Big Dog and the FURminator #PetHairSolutions


There once was a little girl named Gracie.

Gracie had a very big dog that looked like a bear.

Her dog’s name was Sherman.

Sherman was very fluffy and had a lot of hair.


Gracie watched her totally awesome mom brush Sherman all the time with her FURminator® deShedding tool and she longed to one day try this tool out on Sherman because her mom, who is awesome, always raved about how well it worked on Sherman’s coat and how much undercoat it removed on him without breaking or pulling the hair.

So one day when Gracie’s totally awesome mom was working tirelessly on laundry, Gracie decided that she wanted to give the FURminator® deShedding tool a try on Sherman so that she could help keep his beautiful brown coat in top condition for the summer.

Gracie brushed Sherman for hours and the both of them had a great conversation about how they were going to have so much fun in Sherman’s pool this summer.


Gracie explained to Sherman that if they were going to be sharing a pool this year they would have to do something about all the loose hair that was falling off of him because she would prefer to lounge in a pool that did not have dog hair floating everywhere in it. (some girls are so picky)

Sherman agreed that a swimming pool filled with hair would be no fun but he wondered about the slobber?

He didn’t think it would be possible to keep slobber out of the pool but then he figured slobber and water go together so Gracie probably wouldn’t notice if a little bit of slobber got in the pool as long as it was just slobber and didn’t contain any debris.


Gracie and Sherman were having so much fun with their summer pool discussion that they didn’t realize that Gracie had been eaten by a giant mound of dog hair until her awesome mother, who was still doing laundry, came looking for her.

“Gracie. Gracie! Where are you?” her mother shouted.

Gracie tried to answer back but every time she opened her mouth she ate a little dog hair, so she began waving her hands high above her head.

Sherman began to bark and paw at the mound of dog hair that was wiggling back and forth.


Finally, Gracie’s mother saw her little hands waving back and forth and she was able to pull Gracie from the giant mound of dog hair.

It appeared as though Gracie and the FURminator deShedding tool had gotten the job done and Sherman was deemed pool ready for this summer!
