I burn my clothes and buy new ones, thats the only way.
Hehe, just kidding. I have no idea either. My Golden doesn't lose much hair yet, but my Pug leaves his whole silhuete of hair on the ground where he sleeps...
I have no idea of how to remove their hair from my clothes :/
If someone knows how to remove their hair from my car's seat I would be VERY interest in that too.
That's funny! I haven't gotten my puppy yet but I have a cat that gives me practice. He's got a double coat the same color as a golden. I've actually bought furniture and comforters etc that are similar in color. I used to have him and a black cat, I could never win!
I hate the new HE water saving washing machines, pet hair became much worse when I gave up the old tub style and got a new HE.
I buy the five packs of 3M lint rollers at Costco. Can never have too many lint rollers when you own a Golden. It seems worse in the fall & winter when the air is dry and there's lots of static electricity. For the back seat of the car I broke down and got a quilted seat cover that covers the whole back seat and insisted on leather rather than fabric seats when replacing the car.
I have learned to value the colour beige, either by itself or in combination with gold/brown. About as fashionable as a penny farthing bicycle, but the only way I look half-way presentable. Cars, like carpets, are a whole different ball game!
Lint rollers for sure....dont leave home without one... we had a lease vehicle that Neeko would ride in, cost me $168.00 to have it cleaned before we went back to the dealer..... when they were done there wasnt a hair to be had....and it was bad when it went it..... Now we bought Neeko his own car, so the other car looks like new!!!! Probably not many dogs out there with their own car!!!! lol....
I, too, have lots of lint rollers. Sometimes I throw the items into the dryer with a wet washcloth (wrung out) and a couple of dryer sheets and tumble them for 10 minutes on medium heat. Takes off a lot of hair and freshens up the items between washing, too. This even works pretty well for the fleece throw blankets that we like to snuggle with on the couch.
I'm also a fan of beige or variegated colors to conceal that ever-present hair.
I am also a 3M lint roller ran. We buy them in bulk. I am not a fan of beige and I wear a fair amount of black. All my friends know I have 3 dogs so they expect me to be covered in dog hair and since, as I mentioned, I wear a lot of black most strangers know I have dogs since I am usually covered in golden fibers of joy. Lol.
Let me know when you can get the hair out of water and food. Hahaha, if it helps I find that dragging a wet swiper (the ones for window cleaning) across the sofa or carpet helps a lot so it might work with clothes.
I just gave up after a few months of intense lint rolling my clothes lol and i have a white golden and wear a lot of black but everyone knows i have a dog, as well as my kid so i don't worry as much unless were going out to a nice place then i will make sure we don't have any on us other then that, who cares lol
I only have one carpet and i have a good vacuum the rest of my floors are wood so i use dry swiffers every other day or so and get up the hair tumble weeds as for the couches i do the best i can with the covers that are on there.
Thought it might be fun to see how old some of our Goldens are!
I'll start, Mandy is about 11.5
I know there are some older ones here! Please let us know how old your's are. There will be 'cheers' for the oldest!!!
Noticed that we had a page from 2005 on the same subject, but wanting to rejuvenate the topic.
We are in the market for a pup, and the breeder we are putting a deposit down with charges $1200.
What about everyone else?
Since joining the forum a month ago I have been quite active... I am currently off work in convalescence for an illness so I have quite a bit of time on my hands. Today Buddy came over and gave me a rare "kiss" .. well let's say a load of slobbery licks all over my face ... which is so rare for...
