Wait, what?

I would say that Melvin’s hair shows up on about 95% of my clothing.  I just don’t own a ton of tan items. I used to lint-roll but now I just don’t care.  I was getting a pedicure this weekend and the woman next to me looked at my shorts and proclaimed ‘you must have a dog’.  Before I could confirm this (or gush about how adorable he is), she told me she used to have a dog, but she gave it away because it’s hair was always all over her clothing.  She used her hands to do a universal sign language to reiterate ‘all over’.  The look on her face was expectant of some sort of empathy from me (I guess since I was covered, ALL OVER, in dog hair).

My response:  “I’m sure the dog is better off without you”.

I shed? No, impossible.

  1. OH MY GOSH did you really say that?!?!? Good for you!! LOL that’s awesome…I keep a lint roller in my desk at work, there’s no point lint rolling before I leave the house because I’ll just get covered again once I sit down in my car. The dogs ride in the back seat, and yet, the drivers seat is always covered in dog hair?!?

    • The silence that came over the place after she said she gave the dog up required filling. The poor girl doing her pedi had a look of horror as she was waving her hands and saying she gave the dog up and then the tech smiled when I respondend so it was worth it. The woman was oblivious, she just kep talking.

  2. We have a sign in our house that says “Love me, Love my dog” but Daniel always changes it to “Love me, love the dog hair all over your ass when you leave our house.” I am not sure I would have had the guts to say what you said (I am have trouble with confrontation) but I would have loved to be a fly on the wall to see the look on her face after you said it!

  3. See for me..dog hair on a person’s clothes or on the family room couch signifies to me that this a person I will most likely bond with. Would have loved to have been there Tracey! Good for you!

  4. 🙂 That put a smile on my face this morning! I read somewhere that whatever color dog you have, your wardrobe is most likely the opposite! I gave up the lint roller long ago too 🙂
