Dog hair is important

WITH ALL THE chaos and controversy going on in the world, it's time for us to talk about something really important - namely, dog hair.

If you have dogs, you have dog hair in your house. Angus has short hair, but Genie and Tucker don't. They get stuff stuck in their hair all the time, and we usually suck up two or three vacuum containers of hair a week. The car gets filthy in a hurry, even with a bed sheet covering the back seat.

Genie needs nothing.
So this morning Sheryl took the dogs to be groomed. "They aren't getting shaved," she said. "It's just a cut and a style."

You mean these two dogs are getting their hair styled?

"Of course," she said. "It's not like they are going to a spa or anything. It's just a hair cut."

True. We know a dog that actually goes to a doggy spa every week. It's the same dog that had knee surgery in Columbia, Missouri, by a dog knee surgeon. A DOG KNEE SURGEON. I am not making it up. The same dog gets bottled water and chicken dinners made daily. So getting her hair styled isn't a big deal. It's just part of the routine.

Tucker and Genie, however, are not so pampered. We'll brush them and hose them down after they roll in death on their walk, but that's about it.

I'm curious to see them this afternoon. Chances are they'll look and feel better. Tucker and Genie have a lot of stringy hair by their butts and back legs, and a good trim will probably make them more aerodynamic and less prone to getting the nasty dingleberries stuck back there.

If you look good, you feel good, and I bet our dogs will feel great. Especially without the dingleberries.
