Yup. Well, sort of. He's such a good one, I would have taken him at pretty much any age.

Can you get a Roomba, Babe? While Roomba doesn't deep clean, she does a pretty good job with day to day vacuuming. Plus, she's very entertaining to watch!

We need to get you a riding vacuum... I keep thinking a leaf blower would work for dusting...

I really like dogs and think highly of many dog owners except- for the owners who think it's better to have their pets poop on my lawn instead of theirs. Any suggestions on how to avoid crumbed up lawnmower blades?

We always carry a poop bag. Our dog is always on a leash. Our neighbor has his orange poop bucket, and goes around picking up after his dog weekly.

My BIL used to have a poop picker upper service (he lives in a big city).

Would spraying the blades with WD 40 or Pam help? Even baby oil or Vaseline might do it.

Y'know, a hair dryer might work too, on a smaller scale....

Hah! Made you laugh!

I just turn a fan on for 24 hours and it seems to suck all the cat hair into the back of it... I just back brushed the cat tower and got a whole other cat out of it.

Took me 20 minutes to get the A/C in the window by myself, why the heck does it take Shrek 2 hours WITH my help?.

Perhaps because he ensured that it was properly (pitch and sealing) installed?
