Who else noticed Lisa Vanderplumps' Maltese Lollipop?

Cute, right? Her little pom Giggy gets the spotlight, but her other two Lollipop and Pikachu are awesome.

ditto! poor jiggy, like someone else said i am a little miffed that she calls him a "teacup". i think the hair loss is a common genetic disorder in poms, i have a neighbor with a pom with the same condition (he is standard size).

my best friend has a pom that's going through that hair-loss now. it is a common genetic thing called alopecia x. it can be brought-on by shaving the dog short with clippers, the coat sometimes never grows back all the way. My friend shaved his pom for summer, and it only came back in chunks, so now he's shaved permanently. I'm actually afraid that my Darby might be taking too long to grow out his butt hair since his last trim (not a shave though)...

They're all cute though, especially Lollipop.

Yeah, it's real. No pom line is completely free of it, but some breeders find it more often than others in their dogs. It doesn't harm the dog, it's strictly cosmetic in most cases (in some cases their skin can become black and cracked though, which can be uncomfortable!). That's why many people who own purebred pomeranians don't do the summer shave-down.

Oh!!!
Thank you so much for answering my question.
Sigh of relief! :smheat:
I was worried that it included Maltese
and Paris has quite the hairstyle going on now. :w00t:
That is very interesting to know about Poms and shaving.
