I have about 47 lbs. of hair on my floor right now! I can sweep/vacuum daily, yet there's still hair. I should send it in!

They should work with groomers, since they're likely to have massive amounts of hair!

Artie doesn't shed a tremendous amount. Maybe I could just send Artie -- the whole dog, I mean -- and he can BARK the oil away? He could do that, y'know.

Hmm, good to know. The next package you get may or may not contain a ziploc full of dog hair...only so you know what it's like!

So does the fur have to be mat free? My schnauzer gets mats pretty easily and I can send those!

I can send Edison along with Artie!

Yea Dawn...I could send you dog hair, too.

We just call it fiber around here.
We tore out all the carpeting, thinking it would be easier to clean up the dog hair... all we do now is watch tumbleweed dog hair balls when the Rotts go into their shed.
More housework....LOL...
