    Well Tooty, the beauty of the mix bread is she has the face of the Shepherd but the short hair of the Cattledog so I don't have that much hair. We still get some but I think I get more shedding off my long haired cat then I do the dog. But we have hard wood floors and tile throughout the house so that is much easier then the carpet I had at the old house as far as cleaning goes. I'd love to see a pic of your dog, she/he sounds very cute.

    Here is my Kallie

    tschnath: That is one good thing about being short haired and having little to no carpet. She has some really neat colors and is a sweet looking dog. Ok here is a pic of my little Tootsie. Thus my Stew name of Tooty2shoes. Have a great day. :stew1:

    Coming from a person who owned 5 pet shops, we had no dogs or cats, I can say I really love all pets. My customers used to marvel at me, when they brought their baby animals in and I smothered them with kisses. Not the customers but their pets. When I gave them their FREE wing clips or toe nail clippings or whatever they needed for that day, they got a great big scmoosh from me. Hamsters and hedge hogs, and birds, big and small.

    I have 2 dogs and love them dearly. They, especially are close to me, after I lost my daughter, but I am a bird person. I love the inside ones and the outside ones.

    At one time about 35 years ago, I could lay out in the sun in my lawn chair and have about 7 different kind of birds land on me and fluff out their feathers basking with me for hours. I raised and released so many many birds. They were so thankful and full of love it was wonderful until they grew up and bonded with a real mate. That was very cool to watch.

    You know tootsie2shoes, I really do think all the birdies are very fortunate. I got every one of them on craigslist ( for free), from people who had no time for them & a couple of them were being kept in hideous conditions. Now, they all live the life of Riley & i'm so happy to give them all the best of everything & loads of love & attention. You'd be amazed how they come out of their shell when shown love & attention.

    Hannah is a calico! Oh, you lucky person, you. Calicos are sweet, gentle, full of personality and are probably the best owners a person can have (yes, cats have staff, dogs have owners).
    Our calico Feliz is 12 next month, and has been a delight and source of amazement all her life.
    Oubee, your cats are lovely (and your garden isn't messy at all!).
