You have been warned.
If you are an animal owner this tool is a must. If you are like me and get anxiety about animal hair, this tool is a must.
If I was smart I would have gotten the shed less breeds. BUT I never claimed to be smart or just didn't prefer that breed whichever. Or I somehow didn't have a say about the dog it just ended up in our backyard one night while I was 9 months pregnant and out shopping at the mall. Then he just sort of grew on me. Except for his uncontrollable scavenging trait. That's almost got him a swift kick out the door. Like last night when he finished the birthday cake from Freeport Bakery. Or the many many times he gobbled down a yummy just made sandwich. Or a subway sandwich that I couldn't finish but was waiting until later. Or a dozen crispy black cookies that didn't get pulled out of the oven in time and went straight to the trash. Yes he eats out of the trash. That's why i call him a scavenger. He has no preference at all, garbage food, food left in the garage, food on the table, food on the counter, food in the kids hands (preferably Taylor), food on the floor (If he wasn't named when we got him I would have named him Kirby, after my vacuum), unmentionables out of the cat box ( blah blah uggh ughh I cant even let that enter my mind, good thing we got rid of the cat box once that happened. she is now trained to go outdoors, which I have yet to see anything, blah blugghhh uguuughg GROSS), AND hes a carpet licker. Weird friggin carpet licking soap bar eating dog. He chews on soap bars. The carpet licking Im pretty sure is my baby spit up spot cleaner. Im just saying. Who cant smell spit up from a mile away, or even after its been cleaned. darn dog.
I would like to mention. We DO NOT feed him people food. Not at all, not in his bowl not out of our hands, not on the floor not off of our table. The kids are not supposed to either. Maybe we should start and that will stop his starving scavenging dog behavior. I bet not he will just have totally bad habits. Then he would be a starving scavenging carpet licking begger. sigh. Theres no hope.
BUT I keep him because, he doesnt dig, he doesnt chew on anything but his bones. Not my shoes not any underwear (come on we ALL know about those dogs) nothing, he doesnt run away and hes pretty good mannered. Hes got a good foundation but still a work in progress. AND hes not even two years old and a chocolate lab. We all know how labs are. I think all in all we got lucky with this friggin dog. Dont tell my husband that. Riley is his Dog. Even though he follows me around like hes my shadow, sleeps on my side of the bed when I get up and wakes ME up when he has to pee. Ofcourse he does.
anyway. Back to the point of this post. If your a freak like I am about animal hair, I cant stand it. Cant stand it. YOU MUST get a FURminator. Splurge, pick one up. Its a must. Just look at the pictures below. Or dont because personally it makes my nose itch. and I dont even have allergies.
WOW!!! Let me mention this dog gets baths regularly. This picture DOES NOT do this hair pile justice. It was huge. HUGE huge. GROSS!! Like 2-3 feet wide and 1 foot high. No joke. This tool means business. Go get one.
