... to hoover the pug?

The pug sheds (= moults). A lot, all the time. So to save time I hoover her rather than the carpet. Not with the big scary hoover-that-lives-under-the-stairs but a small hand-held model. She seems to enjoy it but am I being a bad person to be motivated by thoughts of my own convenience rather than her pleasure?

You'd soon know if she didn't. And I think groomers use something similar don't they?

Have you heard of the furminator? I just got one for my shedding dog. It pulls the undercoat off. You do have to be gentle though but it works.

I remember hoovering out long haired cat. It was fine. Just don't hoover the ears/tail etc (states obvious)

My Nana used to hoover her Yorkie

One day she hoovered up his willy without noticing

I'd like to do the cats but they'd take my face off.

That willy comment reminds me of a Sean Lock joke .......

My dog doesn't have a willy. He has a lipstick grin

My Frenchie gets hoovered.

With regards to lipstick: Once, we caught him with his chap in an empty 2L coke bottle. Obviously he had been having a bit of slap and tickle with it. Blerk, It took AGES to sort him out. I rang the vet in a terrible panic, and they laughed. bastards.

My dog has a leather football in the bag garden that he - well, I was going to say "mounts" but he's a cairn terrier so he kind of wobbles on top of it, with his paws barely touching the ground - and then rubs his lipstick on. It's just plain rude.
