It's not the BEST picture, but here's Dahlia standing up on her hind legs for a treat. Right now she'll ONLY do it under two conditions: (1) HIGH VALUE TREAT OMG and (2) We just came home after being out for a couple hours.

stand

I'm not sure anymore if she does! LOL The first summer we had her she shed like a son of a bitch. She ended up looking like this (look at that skinny tail!!).

Last year? She didn't shed hardly at all. It was a cooler summer, but she was also eating better food, so I'm not sure why she didn't shed much. She definitely sheds, but she didn't blow the whole coat last year.

It'll be interesting to see what happens this year!

We've furminated Dahlia some and some has come off. She looks almost ridiculous without all that fur. Just look at her poor tail. She ended up with a silly lion tuft on the end of it a couple summers ago. And she looks SO SKINNY without all that fur. She's a much smaller dog than she looks like!

Our spring here has been wacky for weather...85 one day, snowing two days later. I guess it'll be a sign of a warmer summer if she starts shedding much!

i very rarely brush puppys tail, he does NOT appreciate that and will turn around and start frantically biting his tail when i do try to comb it.

i'm considering getting a furminator but i've heard they actually cut the hair off rather than just brush out the shed fur.

I think the person who told you they cut off the hair is wrong. At least, it doesn't seem that it cuts the hair from what I can see. We have one and it's really just a fine toothed comb, a sort of shedding blade that really works wonders. You just run it through the hair and it removes anything that's loose and starting to fall out. I'm not sure how a comb could cut hair off but I could be wrong!

According to their site, it says "The patented Furminator deshedding products were developed to grab and remove undercoat and loose hair quickly and easily, without cutting or damaging the coat." So I'm assuming it doesn't cut it!

our spring here is being bizarre as well. we just had a frost the other night, but it was in the 80's a few weeks ago, and is supposed to get to the 80s in another week. nature cant figure out what she wants to do.
