There's A Whole Lot of Shedding Going On

We've been having some interesting weather here in Nashvegas. In addition to the endless rain, the temperature has been fluctuating wildly. One day it's a balmy eighty-three degrees, the next it's a crisp fifty-two. I don't know how much more of this my poor inflamed sinuses can handle.

Our dog, Brick, seems to be living in a constant state of confusion. When the temperature drops, it's as if his body says, "Ooh, it feels so chilly outside. I better hurry and start packing on a nice thick undercoat so that I can survive the long, cold winter."

Unfortunately, the next day will be so hot that Brick begins to dump all of the new fur in an effort to keep cool. He is trapped in a never ending cycle of shedding and regrowing hair. As the chief vacuum operator here at the Ha house, I may lose my mind.

I have seriously considered giving old Brick a nice bath in a vat of Nair or other hair removing tonic. Only one thing has prevented such an event... If I remove the dog's hair, it will significantly cut down on that warm and fuzzy feeling I get when I look at his furry face.

Plus, there's the part where I would have to slather sunscreen on his naked body every time he wanted to go outside. I'm starting to creeping myself out.

One benefit of this crazy weather is that this is shaping up to be a spectacular fall. The leaves are finally beginning to change color. In another week or two, the hills will be clothed in a rainbow of colors. It is going to be gorgeous.

I love Fall.

Many moons ago, one of my 6th grade students described autumn as Mother Nature’s Fall Party where “everyone” comes dressed in bright, colorful, costumes to celebrate the change of seasons and welcome-in winter.
