    This morning I found one of my dog's whiskers in her crate, looks like it had fallen out. She has finer white whiskers up front and then two black whiskers on each side further back. It was one of the black ones. Should I be concerned or is this normal? Does it hurt her? She seemed fine and wasn't acting strange.

    It's normal, they loose wiskers just like they they shed hair. A new one will grow back. :)

    LOL! I thought I was paranoid about my dogs!!!

    No pun, just funny. I wish I had a dollar for every whisker I found on the floor of my home or my dogs crate!

    That's cute!
