Dog Hair is Not All Bad


Alex is beginning his annual blow out of all his extra hairs. The number of hairs he no longer needs is truly staggering. I gave him a good brushing the other day, just to get him serious about shedding. I cleaned up the piles of fluff as much as I could, but there's always some remaining clouds in the grass. I have to say that it warms my heart every spring, after a brushing, to see all the little birdies in the area land in our yard, pick up a beak full of fluff, and fly away to their nests, looking like they have these fabulous little Einstein mustaches.

I've always wondered if the birds look at Alex's shedding time like some kind of Eddie Bauer clearance sale. They wait all year for the blowout of soft fuzzy insulators and premium nest material...

But the Einstein mustache thing is a great visual.
