Shedding

Fur comes out in tuffs
To the ground below.
Soft fur to the touch
Separates into single hairs.
The hot humid sun in the sky;
The month of Summer in the air;
The season of shedding is near.
Fur comes out easy;
Through a brush or hand.
A full layer of coat falls out
To make room for new one to form.
Inch by inch fur is plucked
From the sides of the dog;
Who stands and waits
For the grooming to be over with once more.
