Yes Matt, that is the shop vac attachment I pulled off the side and duct taped our furminator pet brush to. I still had to pull the hair out of the little combs, but all in all it was a much cleaner approach. Ted was a champ, but a little skittish. After I was done, I took off the attachment and gave him a good vacuuming.
This, is what I found IN the vacuum:
I was elated!!! Look at all that hair with a lot less work! I'm sure that if we kept it we could stuff enough pillows for the world or get a spinning machine and knit a world quilt. I threw it away. Some things I just can't renew or reuse. It's the republican in me, as is the duct tape.
