You’d never know it because my hair doesn’t seem that long, but I shed a lot. This doesn’t seem to bother me, but my people are always complaining about it. It seems they’re always vacuuming the carpet and sweeping the floor and they tell me it’s all my hair that they’re picking up. That might be right because I pick up all the food they drop. They shouldn’t complain about picking up my hair. Just think of all the extra work they’d have if I didn’t pick up the food on the floor.
My shedding started early this year – way back in January. It first starts with little clumps of hair coming loose from my rear. My person starts picking them out so they won’t get all over the house. Imagine having someone pick at your butt. Actually I don’t mind it nearly as much as she minds it when I stick my nose in hers.
My younger person decided to do something different. It felt kind of weird. He vacuumed me! At least he used the little vacuum cleaner that isn’t so noisy. I would have been very upset if he had used that big, noisy one. I don’t know if that little vacuum cleaner did any good, but if I need to get rid of some hair I can always roll around on the carpet.

I have been shedding all summer. And I have lots to shed also. Jen says she gives up and invested in lint rollers- she leaves them in the car. woo woo woo!

Rumpy, I bet it feels good to have a lint roller running over you. Maybe I can talk my person into getting some of those for me.

Wonderbutt and Mrs. P.I.B. do not appreciate that you have just given their human this great idea.

Tell them to try it. They just might like it.

I can’t imagine my guys letting me near them with a vacuum. You’re a very patient dog, Bongo! Stopping by on the blog hop – happy to meet you!

Hi Pibble, nice to meet you. My person says I’m patient sometimes, but at other times I’m a holy terror. -Bongo

I don’t think I could stand being vacuumed. Brushing feels great, though!

Lola, it kind of tickled with the little vacuum. I’d never put up with that big one though.

I’ve been shedding as well Bongo and we are talking about tons of hair! The tall person is continually changing the bag in the vacuum cleaner! Even the neighbours have mentioned that they have found my hair in their yards! Wow! I wonder how far my hair would travel – it’s like the balloons that people release and are found in other countries 🙂
Let me know if you find any of my hair in your yard Bongo 🙂

Bassa, my person said she thinks she found a few clumps of your hair. My person got a bagless vacuum cleaner. She said she couldn’t afford all the bags because my hair would fill them up too fast.
