There's A Hair In My....

There's a hair in my coffee. And a hair resting in the cereal bowl I have pulled from the cupboard. And actually, there was a hair on my plate of dinner last night.....

Although, hair might not be the right word for it.

Fur is more accurate.

It's that time of year, folks, when a dog sheds some fur. And we have three dogs. Three dogs shedding.

It's inevitable that fur gets into cupboards and floats around the kitchen, but the fur in my coffee was related to a dog standing on the arm of the couch, leaning over my cup of coffee that sat innocently on the side table.

If you have to cover your mug with your hand to protect it from shedding fur, things might be not quite right in your house.

We've either got to get better trained dogs, or better trained owners.

When I complained, my daughter pointed out the dog was standing there because she wanted to be with me.

Ah. Puppy Love. I'm a sucker for it. I still kept my hand as a lid (not that it mattered since the fur was probably there before I poured coffee in), but I scratched the dogs ears before I moved her to the other side of me.

Away from the morning coffee, if you please! That's not something anyone or any fur should mess with.

  1. I had one in something I was eating or drinking (I can't remember which one) but it was when I was not at home. I carried the dog hair with me and then had it fall into my food at a restaurant. Blech.
