Can I take a nap, Mommy?
I try and wash the sheets on the dog bed in my office as often as I remember to. The dogs like to help me change the dog bed sheets. Sofie wanted to take a nap before I was finished putting the clean sheets back on. Oh well, she was toooo cute to say no to.
In a house with multiple pets (and humans), it is basically impossible to manage the hair. I have always told the kids to tell any friends that might be coming over to (1) take their allergy medicine, if they need it, and (2) don’t wear black. Now you know, I always wear black and I have a lint roller in every car and purse, and stationed at every exit.
Trying to control animal hair in my house is like trying to control tumble weeds in the desert – good luck with that! I even bought that fancy Animal vacuum when it came out and….. I am not impressed. What I have learned is that the short haired animals in my house seem to shed a great deal more then the long hairs (both cats and dogs). The Guinea Pigs used to shed a lot too, but mostly that was contained. Louise is a constant shedder. There is black lab hairs everywhere, all the time, even after you just swept or vacuumed. Cat hair – OMG!! – I can run the vacuum down the hall, and by the time I am back in the living room, it has to be done all over again.
I pulled a pencil out of my pencil cup this morning on my desk and the eraser had all this white Noel fur on it. (She lives on my desk most of the time, remember.)
I wash the dog’s kennel bedding once a week too. I guess I probably should do it more, but they are never really dirty when the go to sleep (who am I kidding, they are dogs and they walk in dirt all the time!) I guess if I saved all the hair when I brushed them and around the house, I could probably go into the hair pillow business, but then, I figure most of you have enough of your own pet hair to make pillows with.

Oh did I mention all the long curly human hair in the house too. Well, that is for another blog.
Just another DogDaz morning at my house.
