This dog


plus this comb


equals this mess.

See those white pegs in the background? It's a full-sized chair. Can we now please live hair-free for one hour?

Read your comment on ... Deb's site (? I think?)
You ONLY made your bridesmaid's dresses? Sheesh!
But then again - I see you are the Rocking Pony boutique and it makes sense.
Will have to check out more when I'm not supposed to be painting!

Maybe you could knit a sweater or something from it? Honestly, I would love to have a dog, but my dear husband has allergies. So, we just have two fish. Not very playful pets I might add...

Hi, Karla! Glad you've popped over.

Kimmy - we have some low-shedders in the house because my husband and daughter have allergies. Thankfully they're not bad, allergy-wise. And that dog is NOT low shedding, but she's in until the kennel gets built. Apparently she has issues and can't be with the other dogs. Darn bunch of girls.

Yikes! You could almost make another whole dog from that pile.

hey, when you will you know if your girl dog is in the family way?

Oh, and how is Josh today?

Karen said...

Madame - we take the cheap wait-it-out method, so if she's expecting we should be able to tell in about 7 weeks or so. Until then, we're crossing our fingers.

Josh is doing very well, thanks for thinking of him. In fact, he's bored to death and itching (haha) to get out of the house. He only has a few spots that are new so I'm thinking that maybe he'll be able to return to school by Wed or Thurs. Although he and Luke were wrestling last evening, and Micah ended up in bed with him last night. Here's hoping their vaccines kick in and we don't have a recurrence in 2 weeks.

I can only see the top picture :o(

Melissa said...

Yikes, that looks like a small cat laying there. That would drive me crazy!! Do the dogs at least like to be brushed?

Flea said...

I can only see the dog and hair pictures, not the comb picture. Is it a defurminator, by chance? I so want one of those for my two triple coated Aussies.

Karen said...

Flea - it's an undercoat rake from Wal-Mart. It was much cheaper than the furminator and works wonders. That was going to be my next option, but I start cheap.

Um... I hate how much my dogs shed. Two labs = way too much hair inside. Last year we decided to limit the amount of time they could spend inside. Poor doggies!

Kellan said...

We have a Pomaranian and that is the puff of hair that is always under my kitchen table. You are not alone. Have a good day. Kellan

I couldn't see the bottom two photos with my other computer, but now that I have, I think I might have a nightmare about a Corgi blob chasing me. THAT is a heck of a lot of hair. Thank goodness only one of our dogs shed because that would send me over the edge!

Leanne said...

Hmmm. I can't get the bottom two pictures either. What's up with my laptop? I'm going to go and change computers and see if that helps.

Glad to read, through the comments, that Josh is on the mend. He's in my thoughts still.

Flea said...

Thanks for the heads up on the WalMart brush. I've been eyeing the furminator but not wanting to spend the money. It's not by any chance a blue rubber brush? I have one of those and hate it. Yours looks way cool.

Karen said...

Flea, the handle is blue plastic but the teeth are metal. I hate rubber on these dogs. It attracts hair alright and won't let go! Pretty soon you're covered because the brush won't stop collecting.

Colleen said...

I can't see the bottom two pics, either...kinda glad it's not me. Guess I'll do some work and check on it from home. ;)
My two dogs only shed when their nervous (hello clogged bath drain!)...yet another reason why we decided on Boston Terriers. But the three cats? Ugh...should've taken the shedding tool to them when the weather was still nice outside.
