That’s right ladies, my husband vacummed the dog. To his credit he said it worked better than brushing and brushing and brushing her was doing and he was at his wits end.
Last week, hubby was in the garage with our two Golden Retrievers. He brushed one, Goldie, who’s hair wasn’t that bad at all. He got to the other dog, Amber, and he brushed and brushed and got probably a baskeball size wad of hair off her and it was still coming. He got out the shop vac and started to vacuum up the hair. The dog was scared of the noise at first but then she settled down. I looked at the hose, looked at the dog and thought, “Why not?” so, he put the nozzle up to the dog and started vacuuming. He said the dog just stood there at first and then, he says, she kind of liked it (yeah, I’ll just bet she did).
He didn’t right off tell me about this new “grooming technique”. I was looking out the window and said to him, “Amber’s coat looks really good”, to which he replied, “I vacuumed her.” After I laughed for about five minutes he continued to explain.
