    Nope, it's just a large carpet to be walked.

    I don't think my house is big enough to store the fur from one of those. The ceilings would keep getting lower as the carpets got thicker.
    Curiosity never hurt anyone. It was stupidity that killed the cat.

    We would vacuum our German Shepard. These dogs have a double coat too. And it seemed to feel really good to him. Better than two brown paper bags full of fluffy hair.

    That's why you had to dunk them in the bay - get all that loose hair off.

    Which is why I bought a Shearmaster, a clipper used for sheep. I know some spinners who have used Newfie hair for spinning. I tried talking my wife into spinning so we could recycle the fur. The discussion did not end well for me.
