Shed. It Happens.

Just when you thought you have seen it all, no, you have not.

I get a text message earlier from Chris: “When you get home, google 'shed happens'”

What the what? Don't you love random text messages? So when I got home, I googled that shizz to see what was up.

Either he was referring to websites that sell sheds or this:

I am assuming because we have a Husky, that is what he meant. “Do you want me to buy that shirt?” Chris: “It's a lady that makes purses and clothes out of pet hair”


Okay so I found this article on it. Read that. Right. Now.

Are you kidding me? And the further you look into this, the more you find. Like, kitting with dog hair. Because, that's what you should be doing with that hair you brush off your dog. HOW UN-GREEN OF YOU TO BE THROWING AWAY DOG HAIR!

I decided to browse Etsy to see if I could find any pet hair goodies. Oh boy, you bet your life I did. Etsy is the best place to find the weirdest things you could never imagine other people buying. So in case you feel like purchasing handmade pet hair items, here are a few of the best:


Yarn. Made from YOUR dog's hair. Yeah, just send it in! I think I found my niche, knitted Husky and Aussie hair products.

Or! If you really love your dog, you can send this lady it's hair, and she'll make you a hat. All of a mere $1,000.....holy moly.

I don't know, hopefully I'm not the only one that finds this as kind of creepy.

I know a girl (online know, not in person know) that made a hat out of her dog's hair. As far as I know, she isn't the one that has any stuff on Etsy, however.

Sooo.. the article you posted was in VICE magazine about a year and a half ago. I remembered the photo of the lady with her giant saint bernards!!

Also DON'T get me that troll for Christmas. (Maybe you should surprise Chris for his Bday!?)

Um, EWW. So gross. this reminds me of regretsy.com. That site cracks me up every time, because it's filled with weirdos like this person. The scariest part is that people out there actually BUY their stuff!

Ok the whole concept behind this is super weird and creepy. I don't know, is it because I don't have a pet and don't understand?
