Default Whiskers Growing BACK?

So we have noticed an interesting thing with Nova. When she first came here she had really short and slightly curly whiskers. We noticed today now they seem to be growing and becoming straight.

She spent at least the month of November living behind the tire store and had puppies in the middle of the month. She has been here since the 7th, so there has not been opportunity for anyone to cut them or anything.

Does anyone know if poor nutrition or something about the whelping process have anything to do with their growth? I know humans get strange hair stuff then they are pregnant. Any ideas here? I guess it really doesn't matter but I am a little curious.

I'd guess that it is the good food, and care she's getting now.

I guess it is. Strange thing is she had bloodwork, it seems odd she could be so out of whack as to have brittle whiskers but her bloodwork would be relitavely normal. Seems like that's the case though.

We trimmed Bonnie's whiskers yesterday---they were curling too much toward her eye. She gets 5 star food and is 9.7 months old. Never had that problem before!

If she had puppies, could her pups have chewed on her whiskers?
