Do you have long-haired buns or short? The ONLY thing we could find that worked for my buns and their short hairs was the HairBuster (which you should get as soon as it comes back into stock! It was a lifesaver for us!) If they are long haired though I've heard others use tricks on here such as a damp washcloth which is supposed to grasp the hairs quite nicely (but didn't work with my buns at all). Also a finer tooth rabbit comb maybe? Just use VERY gently on their skin (also, we got one and it just wouldn't work on our buns either). But they may help you and your bun!

Hahahaha, that's what happened with our Tans! Did you look on places like Amazon for the HairBuster? They may have some if the BB store doesn't! I never looked on there though so that might be a lost cause! I'm waiting for the I-Clicker to come in stock on the BB store too! So I feel your hoping too!

Btw, have you posted any pics in the monthly photo thread of your girl? I don't remember seeing any! You should post some of her! She looks adorbs from your avatar!

Try wetting your hands and running them over bunny. This works great after brushing to pick up all those loose, floaty hairs.

Odd question, but is it mostly when you pick her up? Sam hates being picked up, and I swear instant shedding is a defense mechanism. I just don't pick her up hardly ever anymore

Olivia will sometimes throw a chunk of fur when she's mad at me because I'm trying to pick her up. Reminds me of a porcupine, but she throws fur!

I've found that it can be easier to use your fingers to comb through the fur.. and gently remove any tufts that are ready to come out as well. Then again, I haven't had a chance to try the hairbuster brush you mention!
