Me too! I'd be far more interested in Aussies for lack of fluff! I like hair but more like that.

I don't know if it's typical, but O'Reilly's shedding really diminished as he matured. Once that puppy coat was gone he really didn't shed much, and if he got dirty, once he was dry it magically disappeared. All he ever really needed was a little brushing/combing.

Well really it all comes down to interpretation, The standard calls for a "Medium length" coat. That could mean anything from more than a Labrador to less than an Afghan Hound lol, tho I would consider Lark to have a Medium correct coat. I feel that Hawk's mane is a little too long (mind you it is trimmed in all my recent photos so you can't tell the real length) but his body and legs are all medium length.

If I had to choose one breed to have the rest of my life, I guess I would choose the Doberman. Dogo Argentinos and Greyhounds would be right behind them.

Not very coated Aussie:

I still think we should breed her to Pirate and create some badass cow dogs. Though I think the final decision was to breed her to a Mudi and create Audis.

This is a very hard one for me .

In a perfect world, I could just keep keely forever. But that wont happen. :/
Keely , although ive never really been a small dog person, is my perfect dog. Shes small, so you can take her places easily, people let me take her to their places because shes small and doesnt shed. But she is still a Very very sturdy dog. She rules the largest dogs at the dog park, shes full of energy when your ready to play but will stay home all day and cuddle up with you and sleep if thats what you wanted. Shes intelligent, learns things super fast. She is overall, A very well rounded, wonderful animal.

That said, ive met FAR too many yorkshire terriers , that although i find some are nice little dogs, they just are not like keely, at all , so I am very unsure if i will ever own another one..
Keely is a very hard dog to decribe to somebody that hasnt met her. Shes that dog that EVERYBODY loves. Even people that do not like dogs, like keely.

I love German shepherd too . BUT

I LOVE LABS (there I admitted it.)
I have NEVER been a fan of labs. To be honest I thought they were very generic dogs. EVERYBODY has a lab (essentially) . I found most to be boring, and the ones that i didnt find boring i thought were too "over the top , hyper , on some sort of drugs, in your face" dogs.

Then I met justin (my BF) and with justin came Casey (black lab) .
Long story short, 2.5 years later. Casey is "My dog" . She is completly for me. She has been a struggle, she was a young puppy that was taught no manners, didnt know what it was like to go for a walk or have any sort of stimulation or training. But man, that girl has turned out amazing.. She is a very in your face dog. She wants to be in my lap all of the time. She is the definition of a sook. She has a very high energy level but calms easily. From my love of casey i have spent more time around other labs and love them .

So what i am trying to say after a very longwinded msg, is well... I wouldnt be able to choose. I just really could not.
