Now I know how a man peep feels when he looks at himself in the mirror and notices that his hair is disappearing. I’d heard that it wasn’t a good feeling and now I know. I’m losing the fur on my back.
It’s getting thinner up there. Evidently the groomer told Them the last time I was groomed that she used a different setting because of this.
I feel so embarrassed and naked. Right now, the comb-over is working. Do they have fur toupees for backs?
get the peeps to buy a bit of black fur fabric.. Sorted 🙂 xx00xx

Of course, you carry that in your shop.
This has happened to Little Bit a couple of times. Cutting the hair too close to the skin will cause this. You don’t need Rogaine. I’m just saying.
Have a woof woof day. My best to your human. 🙂
Nope, that’s not it. I’m 11 and it’s not the grooming. I went ungroomed for 3 months and it was there but that did make the comb-over easier.
Probably because of the Addison’ s Disease. In humans it is kind of a rare side effect, but it dogs it can be more pronounced. The same is true with Cushings and my Lee knows all about both in dogs! Just consider your self The Velveteen Rabbit your furs are being worn off because we love you so much.
Sweet William The Scot
But they’re supposed to grow back. I didn’t know it was a side effect of Addison’s. I knew that Cushing’s dogs lost fur in patches. Since Addison’s is the opposite of Cushing’s, I should be growing EXTRA fur.
Does not work that way ~~~~~
Some of the most common signs a pet owner may observe in a dog with Canine Addison’s Disease include:
* Lack of energy
* Weight loss
Less frequent signs include:
* Bloody vomit or stool
* Excessive thirst or urination
* Loss of appetite
* Hair loss
* Shaking and tremors
It’s better to have hair loss than “Loss of appetite”. Me-not eat???
You’re aging gracefully, I wouldn’t worry about a little less hair. Besides, you can’t really tell unless you look close so you’re all set.
Thanks, but I think it is progressive. Maybe I should contact the Chinese Crested rescue to see if anyone wants me.
Dye your back…you know the skin.
XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy
Whee have all begun losing our light Summer fur for our thicker, warmer, winter coat but some of us (Basil) don’t like being brushed and losing that fur in the first place!
Whee don’t think it looks too bad so you. You work that look
Nacho, Buddy & Basil
I’ve never shed that much before. Since it’s normal for you guys, Basil needs to face reality. It’s not normal for me.
Oh dear. I’m almost finished with my latest round of stripping and I kind of look like that in some places. I’ve got two coats.
Makes no difference to moi my ArriOOOOOzona pal. You look bee-you-ti-ful to me.
No ArrOOOGAINE for you.
It’s one of the disadvantages of getting older. I’m still trying to find an advantage.
Oh, Kyla – really and truly, you don’t need ArRroOogaine. I think you look just fine. Don’t worry about a little bit of hair! Much love, The Scottie Mom.
Well, if everyone else doesn’t mind-then I don’t mind. Thanks.
Oh Kyla dearest we are sorry about your furs…being the lady (ahem) that you are we can only imagine how distressing this must be for you. Try look at the pawsitives though…uhm…your back will be cooler.
Hope you and Kaci have a good weekend.
Wally & Sammy
That’s a good way to look at it. Winter’s coming but winter here isn’t that bad.
Are you sure the fur stealer isn’t stealing extra furs?
I wouldn’t put it past her. The bandit.
I know how you feel, Kyla. I was sad too as I was bald-snouted. As my grampy lost his fur on the head he always placed a long strand of hair above the “crime scene”. But I hope your fur will grow back. For me you are always the wise&BEAUTIFUL Scottie-Lady.
Thanks Easy, but it’s been a little while and no fur growth in some places. Bald is beautiful.
Wells, I always thought you reminded me of Telly Savalas……..
BOL!!! Oh, I couldn’t resist!!!! hehehehe
Okays, seriously, I thinks you look FABulous gurl! Butts, if you are REALLY bothered, I will happily donate some of my black furs for a doggie toupee!!
Not Yul Brenner?
You still look fabulous to me and please no toupee.
Aroo to you,
I hope you’re right. I’m going to go with Sweet Wm the Scot and attribute this to my Addison’s disease so that when all of you are older, you are still wooly bullies (maybe with a touch of grey).
How about some extensions?? you could get some blonde ones 🙂
Or I could go whole hog and be a “bottle blonde”.
Oh pook Kyla dog… That’s just not right. I feel you need A LOT of extra treats for this bit of disturbance.
Alyssa, Mr. Fox & Scruffy
Extra treats are always appreciated and make up for some of it.
Baldness is a sign of wisdom and the state of being distinguished! Embrace your folicularly challenged condition!
Not only that, I guess I have no choice.
