Home safely from my grandfather's funeral in Buffalo, I sit and type not next to a pile of happily reunited pets but beside the vacuum cleaner. I have not spent the days since returning home adventuring in the beautiful Cascadian autumn with my pets but catching up on cleaning the house. To put it lightly, it is awful. And by awful I mean how gross five shedding pets made the house while I was away and that I have to clean it. How can there be this much indoor pet hair after just thirteen days?
