But recently a strange thing has been happening. I’m starting to grow hair in places that hair normally doesn’t grow. I feel like an old man that has to trim his ear and nose hair! Check out these pictures of my paw:
|Look at that bare chest and neck!|
|Don't I look tough in my sleeveless coat, despite my bare shoulder and arm?|
When I first started going bald, we tried a bunch of things to include melatonin, but nothing seemed to work. And now, completely out of the blue, I am actually starting to grow some hair back and am not quite as naked looking as in the picture above. This is me yesterday:
|I'm just not feelin' the camera today...but I still get the treat, right?|
The other thing that mom and dad have noticed is that my face has gotten much darker. Yeah, I'm a bit gray around the chin (who wouldn't be at 8 1/2 years) and have two white whiskers, but take a look at this side by side comparison to see how well defined my mug used to be and now it's like some of those black hairs are migrating to the rest of my face.
My back is also darker. It's as if I lost much of my tan colored hair and the black ones from my mug migrated to the rest of me. I have always had darker undertones, but it seems strange to go dark in my older age rather than lighter (gray). Guess I should be thankful in case I want to snag a younger man. Just kidding, mom!
