Monday Mischief: A Hair Raising Bed Story

27 Nov

Dogs with long, fine hair tend to shed less than other breeds. Some breeds shed very little hair. Strictly “non-shedding breeds” do not exist. However, most breeds with single coats are considered “non-shedding” because their shedding is not very noticeable.” – The Science of Fur

The person who wrote that article never met Louise.

Every day when I make my bed, I throw a flannel sheet over it immediately or I will be sleeping in fur.

I carefully tuck the sheet over my pillows and make sure every inch is covered before I go to make breakfast.

But, Louise wants my pillows. No matter how tight under the covers I put them, she digs them out and makes a nest.

It’s no fair! I used to give her a special pillow but she wants all of them. But worse….

The hair, the hair is everywhere!!

 Louise is single coated and short hair. Sheis supposed to be the least of my shedders.

With the addition of Charles’ long black hair, I just can’t win.

Thankfully, Sofie doesn’t shed much (even though she has the longest finest hair). Or maybe I just don’t see it because she is blond.

Any ideas how to keep a bed fur free? I know, ban the dogs from sleeping on it!  Hahahahaha – good luck with that at DogDaz Zoo.

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Just another DogDaz morning at the zoo ❤

    My cat was not allowed on my pillows, too – she did not care the least. The only way to keep her away from the pillows would be to close the pillows away in a cupboard. Or a chest.

    I, too, put a cover over my bed when I make it up in the morning so Tippy’s fur doesn’t get onto my handmade quilts. She doesn’t dig out my pillows, thankfully. She sheds – a LOT! As soon as I clean, there is fur everywhere. Still, I try and it has made me clean more often. Guess that’s a good thing.

    Who would dare spoil that peaceful picture of serenity? No! Mom doesn’t allow me on the bed after she makes it in the morning. But as soon as the bedspread is off, look out! That’s when it’s time for Mom and me to cuddle up for the night. Each morning, after her shower, she chases me out, shakes off my furs from the sheets, fixes the bed, and shuts the bedroom door.

    Love and licks,

    What’s a little fur amongst friends? They look so content and peaceful all snuggled up on the bed in their nests of comfort and love. Who could deprive them of that luxury? Lucky dogs!

      Life with multiple shedders is a challenge, but I absolutely agree. I would rather invest in lint rollers than deny them of a soft place to sleep. Such is the life of a rescuer.

    I vacuum a lot! I get fur and feathers. The same time My Black German Shepard is shedding is the same time my bird is molting. My little Pit mix loses her fur in fall -winter due to allergies , at the same time the bird is letting lose those little downy feathers all over. I don’t notice the Boxer mix much until I look at my passenger seat in my car. My German Shepard ,Chocolate Lab mix hair just cover my hands and sleeves when I pet her so I vacuum and I Sleek EZ the dogs and you just would not believe the pile of fur. Could cover 2 more dogs lol.
