My Son the Swiffer

Anyone with dogs that shed knows this time of year is rough. I have two golden retrievers that are losing their summer coat. We need to vacuum about three times a day and even with the much loved FURminator ( it is clear we are on the losing side of this battle against dog fur.

Normally I wouldn’t mind so much but now with Max crawling he has become our own version of the Swiffer. Set him on the floor and we soon see how much the vacuum missed. On the surface everything looks fine but we soon realize that the dogs need another good brushing when we pick Max up and see a fist full of hair. I sometimes think Max is actually better at picking up the dog hair than our vacuum.

Luckily, winter will be here before we know it and I can then look forward to the dogs losing their winter coat.
