    Yep, the rules of English are about the weirdest out there. Does Petey ruffle his hair when chasing a hare?

    Not sure about fur, but “hair” seems to be one of those topics that bring out the worst in Wikipedia authors. About a million lines, and extravagantly sourced.

    Of course there’s a difference between hair and fur. One has three letters, the other has four.

    Hair grows on my head. Fur grows on my back.

    I love the inconsistency of english. Make up your own rules and then have a little “hair of the dog”.

    You can use human hair care stuff on horses, but not dogs

    What’s the difference between salsa and gazpacho, other than that you serve one with chips and the other with a spoon?

    I don’t remember Petey. Is the dog a new character?

    “Horses have three types of fur on their bodies: mane, tail and fur. The mane is just like human hair and the tail is, also, but thicker”

    Violin bows are strung with horsehair, not horse fur.

    You brush a dog’s “fur” and a horse’s “coat”.

    Didn’t Danae call Lucy “Fuzz Butt” in the past? So couldn’t it be fuzz?

    It’s dog hair on the couch but fur when still attached to the dog.

    I believe that “fur” is a type of hair that grows to a certain length and then stops. So, our body “hair” is really body “fur”.

    English: The world’s most fouled-up language, since it’s basically a mongrel, created from lots of other sources. Greek, Latin, French, Spanish, and darn near everything else, all stirred together!

    Ex: the WIND blows, but you WIND up a clock. You can watch a rapidly descending bird when the DOVE DOVE downward. Also, why do COMB and POEM rhyme, but COMB and TOMB don’t?

    Well, I have had a little ‘hair of the dog’ and swept up dog hair, but when I brush it I call him a furry friend. Horses are pretty much all about hair. I think the mane and tail sort of take them out of the fur category Odd that.

    Some dogs have hair and some have fur. Dogs with double coats have fur and dogs with a single coat have hair. Huskies, Shepherds, Mountain Dogs etc have fur. Poodles, Maltese’s, Yorkshire Terriers etc have hair. Been a groomer for 39 yrs, big differences in coat types.

    It has to do with thickness of individual strands – thick filaments = hair, thin filaments = fur

    I thought hair was solid and fur was hollow.

    Dogs have hair. Fluffy things have fur.

    An American and an Englishman were riding in an automobile when a bug went splat on the ….

    … “windshield”, said the American.

    “You meant windscreen, didn’t you?”

    “No, it’s a windshield. We should know. We Americans invented the automobile.”

    “Quite right, old chap, but who invented the language?”

    I thought Danae gave up on expecting anything to make Sense long ago.

    The Santa Fe NEW MEXICAN is one of the chickenshit newspapers who dropped Wiley – they carried the Sunday strip – and was 1 of only 3 reasons we ever get the paper. Decision was made by Editor Phill Casaus. 2 to go!
