aussiepupowner I know what you mean about velcro! LOL there's always been this debate over whether boston is full border collie or if she's half queensland or austrailian shepard and border collie. she's got the ticking like an austrailian shepard. sort of a blue grey face with all the spot. I absolutely love the spot. I"ve told my husband she's so purty I'd love to have a purse to match her. he thinks I"m gross. lol other than hte ticking she's the typical black and white.

why do people who live in apartments try to take on dogs that need tons of activity? I don't understand it. the day we got berkley there was a family there selecting this adult jack russel that had some very bad habits. this dog was basically going berserk and you could tell by their comments that this dog was going to end right back up at the shelter. they had no idea what they were getting into. However there are some small breeds that are hyper and need something to do else they remodel your hose..jack russels are a pefect example of that.

it is advisable to get a dog that suits your lifestyle, or else adapt a new one to suite your dog.

I have a 6 month old female Miniature Pinscher. Smart as a whip and stubborn as the day is long! <<<arrgghh!!>>> I love her to bits but she is, by far, *the* most difficult to train dog that I have ever owned!

We got greyhounds becuase they are soooo lazy, and boy did that suit our lifestyle Actually, for an apartment dweller, the greys are a perfect match since all they do is sleep all day, and take up only the space directly next to you on the couch. Gotta love that! Ha!!!

We've had a female pug for 11 years. She's a house dog and spolied rotten. She's a terrible guard dog...she loves and greets everyone. We've also been talking about getting a boxer which is a favorite breed of mine.

rojoju I've heard that about greyhounds. they are such pretty dogs and it seems as if they have lovely personalities. it pains me to hear about what they do with them when they no longer find them raceable. LOL I would love a lazy dog on some days! mine hound me all day and nudge me and stare at as if to say, let's play play play play and then when were done they want to play some more. you'd think I'd lose some darned weight having those dogs around.

don't know much about pugs. I talked to a breeder once that told me she wouldn't sell a pug to a family with children because pugs won't defend themselves. the analogy she used was that if a 2 year old beat a pug with a hairbrush the dog would just lie there and be hit until it died. I find that strange but is it true?

Two Cairn Terriers (Toto in Wizard of Oz) - both female
Three Shetland Sheepdogs (look like miniture collies) - 2 males and 1 female

The cairns are exactly tempermental, opininated, ***** do their terrier name proud. We love their independance, high-falutingness, demanding personalities.

The shelties are the calmest, most tolerant dogs ever- they have to be with 2 cairn terrier sisters.

All our dogs are house dogs...we joke that they(the dogs) just let us live inside with them because we can operate the can opener.

We base our male/female selection on whichever dog we connect with the most...connecting is more important than breed or sex imho.

Tami........... Shelties "calm" ????? I own 3 also --- a mother and her two sons.......... and they are anything BUT calm !! Being a herding breed, mine are active non-stop all day long ! Herding anything in sight --- don't EVEN mention the word 'Ball' or 'frisbee' in my house !!! You'll be playing till YOU drop

Hi Jubilee,
Compared to the Terriers the Shelties are calm.

One is an older male that we have had since he was 12 weeks old. If he gets up off the floor for any reason its a miracle. He only gets excited when the food bowl rattles or a car door slams (official people greeter). One female is very very shy. Hides when strangers come into the house. Our remaining male is the most normal...he is a ball fiend - would play 24/7 if you would but is very understanding when you have something else to do.

We love the Shelties. They do require lots of brushing in the summer time to get rid of the shedded winter coat. Seems like we brush it out until it begins to grow in again...never ever getting rid of all of it.

Tami............. My shelties are Mom: 11yrs.old, #1 son : 8 yrs. and #2 son 7 yrs. ------------ we all go for a 3 mile walk every day...... and when we get home they are still ready to play or herd ! LOL...... Oh my gosh, I know what ya mean about the brushing !!! I'm a dog groomer........ and fitting MY shelties in for their grooming has to come on a day off for me, like today. I thought I could do at least two of them; but I hadn't groomed them in several weeks......... I started with the mom........ took me 3 hours of brush work !!!

Tell me.......... do you save their undercoat when you brush it out ?? (As long as it is clean).......... I DO, as my MIL is a spinner/weaver person.......... and she spins the sheltie hair into yarn, then knits something with it !! I have two BEAUTIFUL winter scarfs she has made me from my dogs hair !!! And NO the scarfs DON'T smell........... as long as the hair was clean when ya brushed them............ I get sooooo many comments on how beautiful these scarfs are and people do not believe me when I tell them it is sheltie dog hair !!

Mine are the sable color........... how 'bout yours ??
