Developed in Yorkshire, England, Yorkie had original purpose to thin out the rats which occupied the coal mines of England on that time.

tips to clean dog hair easily

We often find dogs hair everywhere in the furniture or floor as they playing around house. And we’ll have to clean the hair up, and feel tired of that. Here some tips to handle dog’s hair:
• Brushing and combing your dog’s hair daily will help keep hair from showing up on clothing and furniture, especially during shedding season.
• Put an easy-to-wash dog blanket on chairs, couches or pet beds.
• Clean filters in dryers, air conditioners and furnaces regularly.
• On carpets and rugs, use a vacuum cleaner with both a beater bar and a brush.
• For hardwood floors, spray an anti-dust spray on the mop, let it settle and mop.

• Use damp paper towels or a damp cloth to wipe down counters or corners.
• Use a damp cloth, paper towel or rubber glove on upholstery, bedding and drapes. Rub in one direction only.
• Clothing: Tape rollers are best. Or, use wide packing or masking tape rolled sticky side out around your hand. Keep a tape roller in the car.
• Velour brushes also work well on clothing and upholstery. Rub in one direction to remove hair, rub in the other direction to remove hair from the brush.
• Washable items: Shake them out and use one of the above methods to remove most of the hair. "Dry clean" some items, such as cushions, in a dryer set on "air" along with a damp towel and fabric softener sheet.

Carbohydrate for Your Dogs

When we think about diets, we’ll think about carbohydrate, protein, and fat. Human do need them three, but are dogs need them too like human do?

Most dog diets contain a certain percentage of carbohydrates, although they are not considered essential nutrients for dogs. Sugars and starches, which formulate the class of digestible carbohydrates, are metabolized during digestion into glucose. Then glucose provides energy, dispenses amino acids and helps synthesize fats.

Healthy dogs can easily digest cooked starches, while raw starches are more difficult on their systems. After being digested in intestine, carbohydrate will spit into the sugar type which composing them. One of these sugars, lactose (found in milk), is very often not tolerated by adult dogs and will cause diarrhea due to lack of enzyme which digest them. This often called as lactose intolerant. Table sugar (sucrose) or sweets made of sugar are well tolerated by most dogs if fed in small quantities (less than 5% of the total diet).

Carbohydrates which are not used at the time will be stored in the body as glycogen, or animal starch and fat. This excess stored food is often the cause of obesity.

Other form of carbohydrate, fiber, is not essential in a dog's diet and could not be digested. But soluble fibers such as fruit or oat bran play a role in helping maintain proper hydration, in regulating nutrient absorption, and in preserving a healthy intestinal tract. Insoluble fibers, such as wheat bran or cellulose are commonly added to "lite" commercial dog foods to add bulk without adding calories. The same effect may be obtained by adding fresh, raw vegetables such as carrots, broccoli or cauliflower to your dog's diet.
