Theories vs Realities

The mythe of having a non-shedding dog is that the house will stay cleaner. While it makes a nice, comforting theory, in reality there are still messes. Actually, the messes are dirtier. Hair balls are fluffy and airy, easy to scoop up and toss. Dirt requires sweeping.

Our dogs may not shed, but they delight in digging and scratching about the yard. The dirt, grass, and leaves catch on their coats and are brought inside and freely distributed. LOTS of distribution. Lots of sweeping. Lots of….sigh….dirt.

Don’t they look the picture of innocence?
