We've Cloned The Dog: Our New Puppy

Part of our little family includes our old dog Maggie. She's only been with us for the last 3.5 years but is closer to 13 or 14 years old, we aren't really sure since we picked her up at the local SPCA pound. Maggie is a very good dog and also fluffy with black and white fur; we think she might be a mini Australian Shepard but can't be totally positive since we don't know her history.

It came time for Maggie's big brush-a-thon that's necessary to deal with all the shedding that comes this time of year. My husband was very dedicated and over a few hours (yes, hours!) managed to brush off enough fur to create this:

'Mama, it's another puppy! We've got 2 dogs!

THAT is hilarious!  OMG!  Hope you've got the Dyson Animal vacuum to suck up that hairy clone!  ;).

I'm pretty sure you have a Border Collie there! Our family dog is a border collie. She's 17!! Such gorgeous dogs but they definitely shed like crazy this time of year!

Funny Lisa! Our last dog was a true border collie and she lived till 17 years old. When we first got Maggie we thought she was a border too because of her colourings...but she has a really big wide haunches, no tail, very short face. Whatever she is, she is quite tiny and we love that part. Everyone thinks she is a puppy still :)

My husband did a great job at cleaning up every single strand of dog hair. Thank goodness!

Oh my! That's a lot of fur! It looks like a second dog. How funny!

I know! I still can't get over how much fur he was able to actually get off of 1 dog!
