For your furry friends

Category Contests

I have a fur-free dog. Oh, not one of those hairless things, but a dog with hair rather than fur. She doesn’t shed. At all. This is fantastic, because my kids make enough of a mess that I really don’t need tumbleweeds of fur added to my life, too.

But if she did shed, I’d pick up a FURminator Deluxe faster than you could say, “shed.” You can learn all about the FURminator on their site (and watch those awesome videos of dogs being de-furred), and see how the Deluxe version has been redesigned and souped up and such.

One lucky Want Not reader is going to win their choice of FURminator, either the cat version or the small, medium, or large dog version. Your precious furball shall be less shedalicious and the angels will sing. (Note to the FTC: Okay, I made the angels part up.)

Want to win? Of course you do! First, go review the contest rules and regulations, then come on back here and leave a comment on this post telling me which FURminator you’d like to receive by 11:59 p.m. Eastern (that’s 8:59 p.m. Pacific) on Sunday, December 13th, 2009 to be entered. Winner to be determined by random number generation and fuzziness.

Ready? Go!
