The pogs meet the furminator


Recently, my blogs have mentioned the dog groomer man from Woofing Marvellous.I was interested to see he uses the Furminator – a scary looking dog brush that really gets to the bottom of any furry problem on your pooch!

Well blow me down, last week Jilly presented the Furminator on air with David the guest, and I was so impressed I bought one and days later was doing this to the puppies and Holly and Patch. Daisy the minx was getting up to her normal mischief but she still got a good going over courtesy of mum.

Works well doesn't it? They were so soft and shiny afterwards and there was much less hair loss in the kitchen. Mum decided since Daisy was being so naughty that day -  chewing up plants, egg boxes from recycling and a coat hanger – that she's going to take her for her 'Lesley treatment' sooner rather than later! If you've been reading my blogs regularly you'll know why Daisy should be afraid, very afraid! And I'll report back soon on how she got on!
Well I'm off for my annual leave this weekend. I'm going on a fascinating screenwriting course by Robert McKee, called STORY – it's also a great book if you're interested, all about writing for TV and film. So enjoy the week and I'll see you on air Tuesday night next week (9th) – with a brand new Today's Special Value camera, don't miss it!
Best wishes

    Hi Debbie
    I have had the furminator for a couple of years, my cats love it, it always surprises me how much fur comes out, even when I brush them loads normally anyway. I don’t know how you feel, but I just find they look silky smooth and shiny after. Great investment and with all that comes out, at least that is then not in the house!
    Hope you had a great weekend and learnt loads on your course? See you soon on QVC, you always make me laugh when you are on.

    Hi Debbie,
    I clicked on your blog and when I saw Woofing Marvellous I couldn’t stop laughing…it’s such a great name! I might start using that as my word of the week as in ‘woofing heck what was that’ lol. Hope you enjoyed your screenwriting course and the weekend. I’ll be watching tonight to see the TSV camera as I’m hoping Santa might bring me a new one. Love your shows!

    Claire – yes course was fantastic! Glad the furminator’s been doing the business (!) for you and your cats! Mine aren’t too sure about it, but we love it anyway – tons of fur in the bin instead of on the floor!
    Caroline – funny – yes am sure Ben the owner of ‘woofing marvellous’ will be glad if the word makes it into the vernacular! hope you liked the camera! Choice of two recently eh!
    best wishes

    Hi Debs,
    I made my friends at work laugh when I was using woofing marvellous at them so hope it does get into the vernacular lol. The camera was fab and now I’m spoilt for choice cos I also like the Bridge Camera that was on the other week! Hope Santa makes a good choice for me cos whichever one I get I will love as they are both so good! Will be looking out for your next show (and am enjoying being your friend on Facebook too) Love from Caz J xx

    Hi Debs
    Just thought I’d blog to let you know it is Caspar’s (my 3 – legged baby) birthday on 29 november; he is 5! Doesn’t seem 5 minutes ago since his operation at 1. He’ll be spoiled rotten by both mum and me, and he knows it! When you buy one treats etc for a birthday, you have to buy the other as well, don’t you find?
    What’s the weather like where you live? Dogs haven’t been getting out as much as I would like them to; the snow is dreadful in Workington, hazardous for driving and, can you imagine, walking a boxer dog (one at a time!) I’d end up on my back! Still, we have an enormous garden, so they never go short of exercise. That’s when they dare to venture outside. Dogs are not daft, are they?
    Just about to embark upon reading the finkler question, by howard jacobsen. One does wonder sometimes what the judges look for when choosing a booker prize winner. Hopefully, I will be more clued up on this when I’ve finished the book. I bet it would be a dream come true for you to win an award for one of your novels?
    Well, take care, Debbie, and speak soon.

    Caz – I just ordered myself the Samsung camera – wish I’d got it as a TSV but it’s still one of the best value! Shows even us presenters aren’t always in the know!

    Louise – hope Caspar had a good birthday and enjoyed his treats – laughed at what you said about having to treat both of them – like when you have two kids! lol.
    Hope the novel is good. Yes an award would be the ultimate – but first goal is to actually get a publishing deal! That’s the dream at the mo!
