Brushing a Labrador Retriever is a never-ending task. One does not ever finish; one just gives up. Our oldest dog, Abby, is a Yellow Labrador and has a curly, thick, thick coat. She sheds all the time. (They all do.) When I remove the hair from the brush and leave it out in the yard, it sometimes looks as if there are isolated snow balls strewn about. Here are two patches of her hair with dew drops.
