Change is good, right?

I believe that almost anything is possible, if one believes it can be done. However, as much as I would love it if thinking positively makes changes happen, but my chagrin I have discovered change of a bad habit, such as procrastination is not easy.

I have two very long coated medium-sized dogs and they shed alot, I mean ALOT, of hair. Unfortunately, I have ADHD (my excuse) and so  even though I know the dogs need weekly, if not daily brushing, I think about doing so…and then get distracted by a stray thought and do something else. Not a good, not good at all. Fortunately, I take the dogs to a groomer who takes care of my beasties and I happily pick them up afters, clean, mat-free and looking about 5lbs thinner.

However, I recently decided to save money and so am endeavoring to do this on my own.  Discovering my rather slap-dash chase, then brush routine is not working and so I am devising a system.  Okay, it is not really a fully functioning system, but it will go something like- Brush Teddy the Goldie for 5-10 minutes on Monday, and then Ben the Newfie on Tuesday for the same amount of time. Then Wednesday back to Teddy, Thursday, Ben and so on. I figure eventually both dogs will have gleaming snag-free coats and I will have enough dog hair to felt a blanket a queen-size bed. As to how to felt dog hair, that is another story.
