MORE on hair

Why isn't my dog bald by now?
Honestly, I have never seen so much shedding in my life! After talking to MANY other dog owners...it seems to be the same all around. Emmy is just losing hair like crazy. I can't keep up with it! I sweep/vacuum it all up....only to feel like I need to do it again 3 hours later. Last night I was pulling clumps of hair off of her. She had these little "fuzzy" spots on her hind quarters, and all I had to do was pinch a patch in my fingers, and all of it would come off in my hand! It is gross. She doesn't even seem to notice when I do that, so it must not hurt her. And, Even though it seems that I'd leave a bald spot behind....NOPE! It is crazy.

I wish she could just lose whatever she needs to lose all at once. Instead, everyday there is new fur clumps to pick up, and black dog hair dust bunnies collecting all throughout my home! UGH!!

Next time we get a dog....my thought is....definately a non shedding one.

Yup, that's one of the downsides to having a lab. Ours is a hair pit...I can't stand it.

No more shedding dogs for me in the future, either!
