I`ve been a full time groomer for over a dozen years, and at this point....Id rather no dog, then a newfie, bernese, collie etc. I appreciate all breeds, but after so many years of eating hair all throughout the work week, I dont think I could handle it. I adore IW, fantastic breed. When I was researching Danes, the IW was a CLOSE contender. Id also love a Brussels Griffon but...cant have em all!
Hello Everyone!! I am glad to see so many fellow dog lovers out there!!! We have 3 ragdoll cats, & 1 sphynx, & are waiting to get our sphynx's mom as a retired breeder hopefully! But we are true dog lovers as well - we have TEN! Yes, ten! We have 3 elderly pugs, 3 French Bulldogs, a Beagle, a Great Dane, & 2 Chinese Cresteds! The cresties are the sweetest little guys!! Manny is pink with brown spots & white hair. Howie is what they call a "palamino", & looks just like a palamino pony - golden tan with white hair. They are such cool little guys! Manny is a true hairless, & Howie is a hairy hairless. One of the nicest things is that rather than fur, they have hair, so it doesn't shed - I comb their hair just like I do my own, & get some hairs in the comb. They get a bath in the sink about every 2 weeks & a quick shave with a mens electric shaver, & they are good to go! If I could have any other breeds, it would probably be a Brussells Griffon & a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, although Cavaliers are almost 100% guaranteed to develope heart problems due to the small gene pool! I need to take some nice pictures of my menagerie & learn to post them!!!
