I mean, I know that shedding an undesirable side effect of pet ownership, and I suppose that this COULD remedy the problem, but I can't imagine what I'd have to wear under an article knitted per this book's instructions to keep it from instantly knocking me dead the second I put it on. Oh, and imagine how long it would take to get enough fiber to make the yarn, especially if you had a small dog. By the time you got enough, your pet would be dead. Well, maybe that's the point...a memento of your beloved Rover.
