White Dog was almost glad when Jesse came by to clean today. Normally White Dog takes offense at the idea of vacuuming to remove her beautiful white strands from the carpet, but she has been blowing so much coat these past few weeks (odd, for November) that even she was beginning to feel as though she was drowning in an ocean of white floof. The turning point in White Dog's attitude, I think, came last night as she and Steve played house ball. The ball rolled way back under the couch. When she retrieved it, the slightly drooley ball was covered in so much white hair that she spit out the ball and refused to play with it any longer! As Jesse finished vacuuming each room, she took out the dust collection container and let White Dog sniff, then the two of them walked outside and emptied the hair into the garbage. Steve stopped home during the process and commented how clean the girls were making the house...this surprise visit was a good thing because by the time he got home after class the carpet was already beginning to glisten under a new dusting of Eskie white!
