Default Halo lost a whisker...

Hey i just registered. how's it going? anywho, i just discovered a whisker lying on the ground belonging to my chihuahua, Halo. Is it bad when a dog loses a whisker or will it grow back okay or what? cuz I thought I'd heard stuff a long time ago about dogs and how their whiskers don't grow back and they need them or something....but I dunno. I just want to be sure my Halo will be alright...

sorry if this is a dumb question or something. I'm just very paranoid right now because we lost our other puppy, Kiwi, a few months ago. And knowing she's gone hurts now just as much as it hurt when we first found out she was gone. I guess I just get really attached to my dogs. And I am ALWAYS worried about them....anyways...thnx in advance for any help

Halo will be fine
Many show dog's have their whiskers clipped off and many long coated dogs have lost their whiskers for a cleaner look on the face. They all survive just fine.

don't worry, it happens all the time.

it will grow back and even if it didn't it wouldn't be a life changing problem.

most show dogs routinely have their whiskers removed for a "smoother" look and it doesn't hurt them either.
