Princess Piggy Poo is white as virgin snow, white as cotton on the flower, white as fluffy cumulus clouds, except for one black hair. On the right side of Princess Piggy Poo’s hip is a single dark hair. I wonder if she would be as appalled at that little black hair, as I would be to see a white one on my head of dark hair.
Being on the vain side, Princess Piggy Poo may consider that sole black hair a blemish on her otherwise perfectly white fur. Actually, she probably doesn’t even know it’s there. It isn’t easy to find that hidden gem. From time to time I check to see if it’s still there. Thinking maybe the black hair appeared as a fluke and will fall out, never to return. However, every time I go searching, it eventually turns up.
On the other hand, Princess Piggy Poo may be proud of her single dark strand. While she looks identical to her guinea pig mother, her father was a dark-haired cavy. That lone black thread is part of Princess Piggy Poo’s paternal lineage.
Thank goodness I resisted my first urge to pull that unique hair. Being flawless is fine but then I wouldn’t have so much fun searching for the black needle in the white haystack.
