The Joy of Owning a Dog

The power of the furminator. Need I say more?

Before we got a dog, Nick had me read a book all about huskies (Siberian Huskies for Dummies). The book stated that if you like a clean house, a husky is not for you because they shed a lot. The book mentioned shedding several times but could have never prepared me for the insane amount of hair that resides in my apartment! In Siberia huskies are supposed to "blow their coat" once a year. Washington DC is a far cry from Siberia. Leia blows her coat twice a year and I think she has begun to "blow" as you can tell by the pile of fur in the picture above that I brushed off with this amazing brush called "the furminator". Hopefully it will be a powerful weapon in keeping our apartment cleaner.

Man's best friend

On another note, we finally came up with a name for the jeep! "THE BLACK PEARL". Its perfect! Now we need to get a skull and crossbone sticker for the back! What a kick-butt vehichle!
