When hair drifts occasionally drifts into our cups or onto our plates, we call it condiments or extra fiber
That's two brushing sessions. Jack doesn't like the Furminator. If I used that on him, my fur pile would be huge! I'm boxing it up to send to Matter of Trust to be used for oil booms. How soft and warm would a Sibe sweater be?

Most of the year, it's not so bad. But, in the spring and fall? My vacuum gets quite a workout. This year, it seems like the spring shed started later and is lasting much longer than usual. I guess that's probably because of the cool weather we're having.

At one time when I was with my ex we had five dogs. (We had a boxer, lab, rottie, dashaund and a mutt) We had two vaccums because if we used one constantly it would break!!

Yeah it's annoying that Mollys fur is everywhere but that's just part of living with her.
For the honor of living with the Moll I will gladly put up with the fur.
I hope this poor dog finds a good forever home who will appreciate the gift of fur.

me too......

and me too......

i saw this one today...poor little fellow hasnt done anything, but shes "nervous" about what he MIGHT do even though he LIKES KIDS?!!?

"I am looking to re-home my 1 & 1/2 yr old neutered male dog. He is a small inside dog. Very Happly go-lucky little guy. He can be timid, especially around men. HE LOVES KIDS. He will bond with someone in the family and that is were he will be. (in the room you are). I do believe he is kennel trained, though I dont use one. He likes to sleep on the couch by himself. No potty problems in the house. I think he will do better in a home without other dogs, though I have 2 and he is ok with them. Good with cats. I have a young grandson and I think its too much stress on him, even though he like kids. I am just nervous in the future there could be an incident..."

I wish mine would stop. Every time I touch him the fur flies. He looks really muscular right now and I can actually trace the outline of his big superficial veins through his coat right now. He's got to be close to being done.

actually the post was deleted by the author. they probably didn't like the e-mails they were getting. or they found someone to take the dog, but the former is more likely.
