I think this might be Shelby's calling!

A friend of mine just sent me this link with the comment that this might be Shelby's calling.

I think he's right.

I have to look more into it, but if Shelby's incessant shedding can actually help clean up the environment, that would make me a very happy person.

Not so pretty, but hey! It sucks up oil! On inhabitat.com...

Dogs may be our best friends, but did you know they can also aid us in cleaning up the devastating Gulf of Mexico oil spill? Matter of Trust, a San Franscisco non-profit devoted to “mimick[ing] how Mother Nature integrates enduring cycles and provides access to necessities in abundance” is asking petowners and groomers to gather up their tufts of Fido’s fur that would normally be picked off of clothing and throw away to send them in to be made into oil-busting mats.

This might be one of the greatest ideas ever. Unfortunately I don't think I can send mu pug's hair overseas. So Shelby, be extra-shedding for me okay? Love you!

This cracked me up! What a brilliant idea! I've resorted to shaving Dory down, so unfortunately she won't be saving the world today. Unless they can come up with a fuel system powered by eye goop...

I read your blog this a.m. just before I planned to research donating hair for the Gulf Oil Spill...I followed your link to Matters of Trust and signed up to donate, then I wrote about it on my Blog and I mentioned your site. Let me know if you donate Shelby's hair. Even though my dogs have short hair, there's always a pile of it in the drain after I give them a bath, so that's where I'm I'm going to start ...thanks
