I have decided that in order to live happily with two 80 pound labrador retrievers who shed massive amounts of short, black hair all over the house, that A) I need to shave them bald , B) Not allow them inside or C) I will probably put my Dyson Animal in the shop for less than a year for the amount of overuse.
I highly recommend the Dyson.. we received it as a wedding gift from a collective group of friends and I have to say, I have used it a lot more than our fine China. Sorry, Mom.
We do want to put the house on the market soon. We have decided that a 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath house is too small for 2 people and 2 dogs. Don't even talk about babies to me right now. I think we'd have to put the baby carrier on top of a dog kennel.
