I have a 4yr old golden retriever, golden lab mix. She is a rescue dog and have had her for about 2 years. I have always been able to brush her and vacuum 2x daily( it literally could use it more). I am now 6 1/2 months pregnant. With a baby on the way and a full time job I just cannot keep up with her hair. It comes out in handfuls. I never realized that this kind of dog shed so much. Or any dog for that matter. And this is with daily brushing. I know that once baby arrives it will only get worse and harder to maintain. I want to make her more of an outside dog but the fact that she has always been part of the family inside is making that very hard on me emotionally. We also live in Az so it gets rather warm herein the summers. But it is cold now outside. My husband isn't particularly attached and would just get rid of her. Should I shave her to keep her inside and part of my family. Keep her hair and leave her outside or find her a new home. Please help! !!
