Works For Me Wednesday

I know that I share life changing news with you quite frequently here in the blog-o-sphere; Things that I know you can't live without like knowing how much I love my new washing machine or how to make your dryer actually dry clothes. Today is no exception.

Get ready for this.

You probably should be sitting down. It's that exciting!

Here goes:

You know how we have Macy, right?

See that pretty fur coat? Macy's problem is that she sheds. Bad. And we have to vacuum constantly. And usually we have no more finished vacuuming only to turn around and find more dog hair on the floor.

This is the face Jackson and I make when we realize that all our vacuuming was for nothing. Well, last night we introduced Macy to her new best friend. The Furminator!

We heard about it first from PetSmart where we take Macy 4 times a year to get groomed. They use it and we always thought it was something that only groomers could get. Then, I just happened to read in my Real Simple magazine that the furminator was rated the best pet hair removal product and was only $30 at amazon. You better believe that we got it, especially considering that grooming runs us $80 every three months! It came in the mail yesterday and we love it!

See what I got off of her in 10 minutes? Jackson's shoe is just for a size reference, but the glorious product is there in the background. I didn't get an after picture because I was just in shock staring at the pile of dog hair that I got off of Macy. And it wasn't just her top coat hair; it was her undercoat which is exactly what we want thinned. And her coat was so thick that there was actually dust in it. Disgusting, right?

I think I'm in love with the furminator. And no, I'm not being compensated to say this. I just love spreading the word about great products. And the furminator? It's magical.

Excuse me while I wipe a tear from my eye, because having a shed proof dog totally works for me!

I have a Basset mix. Rescued him from the shelter.

But no one told us about the SMELL. That whole "hound" thing is that they have their own particular odor. So while he sheds...alot, its nothing compared to the smell.

He is the reason we bought leather furniture!


So I love the idea of the furminator...do they have a doggy fumigator too???

Now to figure out what to do with all the dog hair. Maybe knit a sweater? (This is real. Google it and prepare to gag.)

We have a furminator for Katie, too. It is AWESOME. Isn't it amazing how much hair comes off of them?

That is awesome! I just recently saw these somewhere. I don't know if it was at the store or online, but what a great tool!
