Penny the Cat…

Oh, Penny the Cat is heavily shedding! Also, she is being most affectionate. Results? Covered in cat hair and my allergies inflamed! But, I love her up anyway….

A Dog’s Love in Haiku

Emma side snoozing SwittersBEmma’s beyond 10 years now. She snoozes more, has arthritis in her front knees, has had several surgeries, and her shedding is continuous. But life without her is kept from the mind’s eye. Such love and loyalty, such awareness of our moods, movements and expressions. As attuned as can be, unless she is snoozing.

Dog Haiku   

I lie belly-up

In the sunshine, happier than

You will ever be.

Today I sniffed

Many dog behinds-I celebrate

By kissing your face.

How do I love thee?

The ways are as numberless as

My hairs on the rug.

My human is home!

I am so ecstatic I have

Made a puddle.

Sleeping here, my chin On your foot-no greater bliss.

Look in my eyes and Deny it. No human could love you as much as I do.

I am your best friend,

Now, always, and especially

When you are eating.

Yellow Labs & Shedding

If you have ever had certain breeds of dogs (even cats) you know what shedding is like. I do not wear a stitch of clothing that does not contain at least a few Emma hairs. The cars carry signs of her ride alongs. Guaranteed there will be shedded hair visible on the carpet, wooden floors and tiles a few hours after intense vacuuming. Lately, Emma has been shedding in clumps. She does this in the Fall, before putting on her Winter coat and again in the late Spring. For 10+ years we have put up with this and it is what it is…I wouldn’t trade it.

Emma CollageThis week, my wife decided she had to do something besides the ‘normal’ brushing. So she took Emma out back and sat down to brush out some of that hair. Pretty ghastly isn’t it. And, it leaves no doubt that brushings, vacuumings and lint brushes will never fully conquer the hairs of a Yellow Lab.

Was this the scene of a shearing or a brushing?
