Tumbleweeds

Let me introduce you to Sandy.

Sandy is our sweet Pembroke Welsh Corgi.  She is the second Corgi I have owned so I knew what I was getting into.  Specifically, hair.  Lots and lots of hair.  So much hair that frequency of vacuuming does not cut down on the dog hair tumbleweeds that drift through my house.  Enter the defurminator.

The defurminator is a shedding tool.  We live in southeast NC so we don't have to worry about pulling out too much of her undercoat.  She is left with more than enough hair, but the defurminator cuts down on the hair that breaks loose in the house.  It is a process that we have to do every week.

Sandy fortunately tolerates the whole process very well.  She actually enjoys it for the first few minutes.
Then she tries to run away!

At the end of the day we are left with a happy dog!

Oh I know all about the hairy pants! We have a husky and she is about to do her semi-annual shed. It is a nightmare! I need to look into one of these handy tools!!
