Dogs, cats, and other pets have condescended to live with humans for thousands of years. So to thank our domestic friends for their faithful companionship, we're devoting another week to them. Now that's something to bark about!

SHED (hair)


  1. Don't let the dog into the house while he's shedding. I don't want dog hair all over the carpet.
  2. (at a pet store)
    My wife is allergic to animal hair. Do you have any cats that don't shed?
  3. Shedding isn't such a problem if you brush your pet's fur once or twice a day.
  4. My dog sheds so much hair in the spring that he often gets a few bald patches on his body.
