Being brushed is a lovely feeling. There’s something very soothing about having someone firmly brush your hair, about the way the bristles scratch against your scalp as the brush gets tugged through your hair. Bristles on a hairbrush can be pretty pokey though, as Barkley the wire-haired Dachshund finds out!
Sitting on the couch in the family living room with Dad, Barkley is confronted with a nefarious foe–a hairbrush! He tries to pick it up by the handle, but every attempt is thwarted by being poked in the face with the rounded tips of the hairbrush’s bristles. Even Dad notices and teases him about it, calling it the “spikey bits”!
Barkley gives up after a while, deciding that giving it the cold shoulder would surely make it less appetizing. But Dad finds this amusing and repositions the hairbrush within Barkley’s point of view. Encouraged, he goes back to growling and sniffing it. Maybe Dad should try brushing his mustache more often so he gets used to it!
