Sometimes there are things you can do, but perhaps you shouldn't!
I know people make clothes from their pet's fur... but after checking out a few of these, I can't say the garments do a lot for the image of the owners!
I have heard if you are going to do it, only use 25% dog fur as any more can be too hot. Of course, this might not be true if you live in Alaska or similar.
Angus - if you feel the need to make something out of Wilf's hair - you will model it for us won't you :) Probably impossible to imagine in your current French 45C temperatures, but perhaps when the snow returns the font could run you up a fetching little cardy!
