Awwww she sure is cute!

Most dogs shed 2 times a year, winter and summer.
But it is not unusual to shed a little all year.
People shed all year too, you just don't notice it because you brush your hair and most of the hair ends up in your brush.
If she doesn't look like she is getting thin spots or bald spots I wouldn't worry about it.

My Chihuahua goes through periods of intense shedding, and I mean it's really bad. My vet and dog groomer said it's normal and there's not much you can do about it other than brushing. Some dogs just shed more than others. I heard that adding a bit of linseed oil to the food can help but I haven't tried it yet so I don't know.

Man when Kemo shed...I was freaking out, he was blowing his coat bad, he has finally 2.5 mos later gone back to normal (which was very little shedding) goodness I dont want it to happen in the fall again....but it seems like that will be the case. :(

PS Kemo did go bald in some spots, chest, back of legs....ear tips (sorta)
