Shedding

Lately I have been shedding a lot of my fur.

Big Sista loved to run her fingers through my fur.. Oooo I loved it too.

I heard them humans say:

“She’s losing so much hair!” Mom complained. “Home inside also got! So dirrty!”

“Let’s try not to give her home food. Maybe our home food is salty to her.”

“I never put salt in our home food.. but ok, will try it.”

Big Sista found that doggies shed their fur during spring time and temperature.

I heard she quoted from a website to Mom,

“Shedding seems to be connected to seasonal temperature, but it is actually governed by photoperiod or day length. Dogs that live outside usually shed heavily as days lengthen in spring, but those that live mostly indoors often seem to shed at least a bit all year. Loss of the winter undercoat helps the dog stay cooler in warm, humid weather, a necessity for an animal whose only sweat glands are in the pads of his paws. Female dogs often drop their coats after a heat cycle or after whelping and most dogs will also shed after undergoing anesthesia.”

At least I don’t shed as much as this poor Newfie doggie:
