As soon as I find a good use for dog hair and dust bunnies. I'm telling you folks, I'm sitting on a goldmine over here. I'm pretty sure there must be a way to melt fat, smooth wrinkles, cure impotence, or at least run a car's engine with dog hair being the key ingredient. I'm just waiting for the stroke of brilliance to come to me in the middle of the night. Perhaps on one of those nights I'm awake at 4 am to let one of the bossy little shedders out to pee. In that 4am haze, I'll have a shining moment of clarity and discover why my life is filled with so much dog hair and dust. There must be a reason, right?
Before Bayleigh was born, it wasn't only dog hair I had to fight, but also cat hair. Any cat owner knows the average cat sheds his own weight in hair every two days. The kitties now live outside and do all their shedding all over my back porch.
I do battle daily with the dog hair, mostly because of Bayleigh. Don't get me wrong. I don't like the idea of it, but for the most part, if I go a day without vacuuming, it only affects my socks. Since Bayleigh spends so much time on the floor crawling around and exploring, it gets all over her. So I vacuum. And sweep. And vacuum some more. All this vacuuming and sweeping so my little angel won't be covered in dog hair.
So, what does she do every chance she gets?
She climbs right in the middle of a dog bed. There are several around the house and she's been in them all.
**JenJen, your comment about using the sticky lint roller on the couch reminded me of something I've wanted to share. I can't count how many sticky rollers I've been through. Recently I saw a commercial for the Pledge Fabric Sweeper. Anything promising to be fast, easy and effective in removing pet hair gets my attention. I picked one up at the grocery store and have been pleasantly surprised with the results. It really works. I keep it next to the bed for a quick sweep of the covers when I make the bed. Takes no time and gets all the hair, no need to fight with tape. I give it two furry paws up. Or should that be sixteen furry paws? Four dogs... sixteen paws. Man! That's a lot of paws.
