we have two pugs that shed horribly in the summer. a few years ago, my husband discovered (by accident) that one of the pugs loves to be vacuumed. she’s twelve years old, acts like a puppy, and chases our cat for sport – and he obliges her by allowing her to catch him occasionally. we love her. we know that she’s not long for this world, but as long as she’s vacuumed and happy, i think we’re doing a good job of making her life a good one.
