With all the loose hair floating around, making drifts and tribbles and gawd-what-a-mess, I never noticed this happening before. Fun way to really wake up, too. I was innocently blowing my nose, trying to read my e-mail, when I got something in my eye. A hasty trip to a lighted mirror showed a lovely black corgi undercoat hair trying to pretend to be capillaries.

At least something that big's fairly easy to get out....

Too funny LouAnn! I shake a corgi a day out of my Bissel. Amazing!

Me.....I have a corgi, and a chorgi (chow/corgi) and they both look like they are getting ready to blow their winter hair. I guess this would be the only good reason for my husband to be laid off right now. He can get the sweeper out and keep up with the tribbles around our house....LOL. He already has complained (in a loving way) of the 2 or 3 other corgis he has to shake out of the Dyson sweeper's collecting bin almost every day.

oh my, too funny! I live in CT, but was dangling my toes in the North Atlantic off Normandy, France, when several tricolor hairs floated by...I've picked tricolor hair off the coat of a friend in Seattle, who has no animals...And every time I take a bath, no matter where I am in the WORLD, tricolor hairs float along the water's surface. But if you ask me, the biggest hazard of corgi ownership is total, complete, life-consuming obsession with all things Corgi, and having a heart so swelled with love for your furry beast(s) you don't know how it stays contained in your puny chest.

[covers mouth, aghast]

Was it ruined?

Part of my work is in a biosafety cabinet, an ultra-clean hopefully-sterile HEPA-filtered UV-irradiated environment for doing tissue culture work. Tissue culture people get very territorial about their supplies and equipment because it is so easy to contaminate and ruin things. The powder-free gloves are as much to protect my work from my dirty hands as they are to protect me from my work. I've left petri dishes open in there for a whole day without them getting contaminated. An operating room is a pigsty by comparison.

So... uh... exactly what is that I see in there on the cap of my bottle of very expensive tissue culture medium?
Oh dear. Yes. How embarrassing. That is, undeniably, a tricolored Welsh corgi hair...
I am not making this up.

Cold nose poke in the eye is another exhilerating way to wake up!
I have yet to know the joy of undercoat in the eye, but I know what you mean about tribbles. I had one growing in the corners of every stair. The Bissel dispatched the little pests promptly!
