Haha! So true! I vacuum the steps when the big clouds of hair get in my way going up or down. That works out to about twice a week. :(
A sable-and-white Corgi, a red-headed tri-colored Corgi, and a pure white cat mean I have white hair, blonde hair, red hair, dark brown hair, and black hair. And Maddie's undercoat is grey, so I also have grey hair.
We consider "dressing up" to mean that we leave the house NOT covered in fur.
I'm with everyone on the Furminator. Bear was blowing his coat when we got him (rescue) and it made a HUGE difference. You do have to do it consistently though. I let it go for a couple of weeks and I'm still finding fur balls.
If you decide to get a Furminator check out Amazon. I had heart failure when I checked on them at our local pet stores but got a great price on Amazon.
