they still sell that sort of thing to use on dogs that shed a great deal. it'd be worth it in my house...

although i dont know how TheEngineer would like me using it on him, great hairy beast that he is!! (the poodle doesnt shed. TheEngineer *does*!)

"And other foreign matter..."

Hadn't they thought of just washing their dirty hair??? Just...ewww.
yeah, i understood the dandruff aspect
but really, what other foreign matter should be in your hair enough that you need to vacuum it out regularly?
Really, it's just a blow-dryer in reverse. I don't see why it didn't catch on.

They shoulda called it "The Scapsucker".
