Hairy little bastard

{ I wonder how many questionable google searches will lead people to this post's title. }

Photobucket

What you see above is why:

1. I can't have any beloved white furniture.

2. We need a Flowbee.

3. A Hiro tumbleweed (i.e., a fluffy, downy accumulation of shed Hiro hair that will sometimes drift by if you're at our house) stopped conversation at our last dinner party.

4. We tip the groomer generously. And also give her a huge bonus during the holidays.

5. I have to vacuum every other day.

6. If you're dining with us, you should probably check your food before you eat it. Uh, no reason, just sayin'. Why don't you eat your food and we'll tell you?

7. He was turned down for the role of Mr. Bigglesworth.

8. We still love the bejeezus out of him.

You could seriously knit a sweater out of this shiznit.

{ Pssst, if you take a look behind Hiro, you'll see what our house has been up to in the last few weeks.
I hope to share more soon. }

  1. Awww! He looks like he knows you are talking bad about him! I feel your pain - my (thankfully) outside cat sheds like crazy. I brushed him 15 times until the brush was completely full (we don't have one of those like you have in the picture) and I gave up because the hair just kept on coming. My little scottie is a shedder too, but he isn't as big as Hiro, thankfully.

  2. He's so freakin' cute and you are too funny!!! I get those little hairballs to from Machy. They like to hide and then come floating out when guests are over!!! But, who cares? They are so worth it!!!

  3. I could have written that post word for word. Expect you don't have the white furniture and I do! Ah it's a mess. I'm constantly cleaning, but with a face as cute as that how can you resist him! Too cute. More Hiro pics please!

  4. Oh my gosh! I'd let that fur ball all over my non-white furniture, simply for that face! Isn't it amazing how much we love our pets?

  5. Oh, that face! Hiro is the sweetest looking pup around!

    And, I spy some serious painting going on! Girl, I have to see it soon! So excited for the reveal I could scream. : )

    Miss you!

  7. What a sweetheart! That hair pile looks like Lucy's when I'm done grooming her.

    Yes, you probably won't want to know what search terms will bring people to this post. LOL After posting about my cat, Fatty, I'd see searches of "Fatty jumping up and down" and such that led to my blog. Um, er, uh.

  8. He is super cute. We have the same problem here- with blond hair. And I brush him each week. Thank goodness we love our boys!

  10. Casco has a regular date with the furminator. Do you have one of those? It's saved my life (but we still vacuum frequently and feed our guests white fur with their salmon). Hiro is so cute. Casco says "woof".

  11. I love Hiro, he's just so adorable it kills me.

    I second Emily on the Furminator. It's pretty rocking. I also shaved Lola this year which gave us endless amusement and kept the shedding at bay.

  12. That is sweetest face I have ever seen!

  13. we're rolling in the dog hair over here. we've had good luck w/ the furminator, too.

  14. Oh, he's such a sweetie :) I have 3 cats, so I can kinda relate.

  15. I send everyone I know who knows how to click a mouse to your site. I truly think you are the bee's knees chica. Is that a new paint color I spy in the bg? I love the gray. It reminds me of tree bark.

  16. I WANT TO SNUGGLE HIRO. I WANT TO SNUGGLE HIM SO BAD.

    That is all.

  17. Oh, and he totally has the sad look down. Kitty has the sad look down, too. See?

    Some might say it's 'cuz she's dressed as a pumpkin BUT OMG IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH IT I SWEAR.

    Also, Kitty and Hiro kind of have the same markings. Fa-reaky.

  18. oh my holy stars, i want him! the big dog shedding issue is frustrating, but so worth it because they're so darn CUTE! I just want to hug him and squeeze him. Is that weird?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Poor Hiro, he has enough fur for a few pups! Gotta love it!

  20. I just cussed a little when I realized what I was looking at! hahah

  21. OMG, in my focus on Hiro's hair, I totally missed the new paint color. No kidding you've been busy...LOVE it, please post more pictures.

  22. Awww, Hiro looks so cute and cuddly! I'm sure the hair gets annoying though.

    ReplyDelete
  23. He is too cute! Ahh, the joys of pet ownership. Floating hair doesn't bother us fellow pet lovers in the least bit!

  24. Freaking hilarious and re: checking for hair . . . how bad is it that as I was eating my lunch today I noticed a piece of hair, went to pick it out and eat said bite, only to realize that I didn't prepare my food and it was from Chipotle. It wasn't cat hair. :(

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh, Hiro! LOL! Love every bit of him, including his floating bits of hair!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh so cute, Hiro is so good to pose for the camera :)

    I love the crown you put up in the kitchen. Your kitchen has really come a long way from the original state you got it in. Good for you and Mr.FC.

    take care,
    Lisa

  27. Ah...isnt it great? And I'm lazy about brushing Charlie. PLUS he hates it and I hate to make him miserable, I leave it for the groomer ;)

    They are worth it, but it is embarassing to have 'non-hairy-bastard' company sometimes! You could come to my house anytime!

    ReplyDelete
  28. He is too cute. I will third the notion of a ferminator. After you comb all that out with a wire brush you get even more addition small animal hairballs.

    ReplyDelete
  29. ahh, the doggy tumble weed. I have plenty of those rolling around my house, no matter how many times a day I swiffer/vacuum! amazing stuff, isn't it?

    ReplyDelete
  30. I thought I was the only one with the dog hair tumbleweeds in the house!

    ReplyDelete
  31. What a cutie! We have three dogs whose coats include various combinations of black, white, and gold, which essentially guarantees that no matter what color I wear, my outfit will include visible dog hair. :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. LOL...I've got this TIMES 3...I know EXACTLY what you mean...

    ReplyDelete
  33. hehe! Looks like an awfully good friend, well worth the sacrifices.

    I can't wait to see your wall come down at last!

  34. This is my first trip to your blog...I linked from Centsational Girl...Hiro is soooo cute! Love that face! I say if a Hiro tumbleweed stopped conversation at your last dinner party, then maybe you are inviting the wrong folks (wink)! We had hairy dogs when I was growing up so I totally remember about the hair...so since I've been an adult-all my dogs have purposely been short hair. Much nicer...and since I live in the Pacific NW, smooth coat dogs don't seem to get that stinky wet dog smell when they go out to do their business on rainy days.

  35. girl I FEEL YOUR PAIN. I vaccumed and mopped the ENTIRE house last night, and an hour after I was up this morning there were already Maddie tumbleweeds floating in the morning sunlight. SIGH.

  36. awww... what a sweet face! we have two dogs that shed so i'm constantly cleaning up after them too. but, we wouldn't have it any other way!

    All the best,

    Alex

  38. Oh my word. Hiro = adorable. We have a dog that looks a little like yours, and YES, we brush/Furminate so much hair off her that we could make a new dog.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Soo funny! I just used the Furminator comb on our Lab and kitty this weekend. So gross....I think I pulled a small shitzu (sp?) off of our dog. I'm somehow still getting tumbleweeds of fur in our kitchen however. Oh the joys of animals! I love them!

  40. My dog is the reason I am afraid to buy a white bedspread... I feel your pain!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Ha! He looks THRILLED. So cute, little HiroMonster!

  42. Too funny!!! I totally know what u mean about hair in the food. For some reason I'm so in denial about it cause its so embarassing. Sometimes when I cook for guests I'll find a piece of fur in my pasta and I just quietly throw it on the ground and think to myself "What are the odds I'm not the only one with fur pasta?"
    And then when one of my guests finds fur in their food, I promptly reply: "Thats weird!"

  43. He has the sweetest lil face! What kind of dog is he? I totally missed the hair bit and the peer-in-the-window bit b/c I couldn't drag my gaze from Hiro's cuteness. Adorable! You are so lucky!

    ReplyDelete
  44. What a cutie!!
    We have a Lab/German Shephard mix and a chihuahua that both shed like crazy. The big one is black, and the small one is reddish color (and whose shed hair is light). So we're screwed either way - dark, light - you're going to see the hair!
    I have white furniture, but I wash it often. And have a throw over it during the day.

    Oh, and the furball tumbleweeds?? Had me giggling - I've thought the same thing about our fur "tumbleweeds".

Let's get weird up in here.
