“Once a week, Mrs P vacuums up all the dog hair in her house. When she has finished the sofa, she will do the carpets, inside the oven, the washing machine and between the pages of her book. As she coughed up a hair ball, Mrs P wondered how it had got there! ” ~ The Dog – A Ladybird Book
Mrs P is lucky, she should try living in my house!
A dog is man’s best friend or so they say. I now understand why they say MAN and not woman, because most of my day is spent cleaning up the dog hairs from the floor.
Previous to the canine purchase, the eldest daughter did her research and assured me that beagles are medium shedders, well, if he’s a medium one I would hate to share my home with a large one! (I’d actually asked for a designer dog, a non-shedder!).
I’ve had dogs all my life and keeping them off furniture wasn’t always easy to do. So I suppose I should be grateful that Woody the beagle has been easier to train than most. Woody knows he’s not allowed to share furniture, our beds, or go upstairs.
Woody is delighted to receive a chew stick, but he wants to bury it, after all, a dog never knows when the cats from next door might congregate in his living room and attempt to steal it.
“This is Lyttelton, he is confused. There are two non-dogs in his bedroom. Now his bedroom will smell of the non-dogs. Lyttelton will have to make his bedroom smell nice again by peeing all over it.”
Woody loves the sunhine and follows it from window to window. He also enjoys fetching and reading the morning mail before we do!
Beano dreams he has been invited to a party to celebrate the defeat of the human oppressor. “Those fools,” laughs the cat in charge. “How did they not guess we had been planning their overthrow for tens and thousands of years? Why did they think we agreed to live in their awful,hot homes?“
Beano doesn’t understand the politics, but he is delighted to be allowed up on the furniture.
Best dog hair removing tool… Ever!
