Web's pretty bad too. While in pictures he looks like he has a short harsh coat, he actually had a very plush double coat. It's almost like a rabbit...very cuddly. But when he sheds the incredible denseness becomes apparent as he creates a mountain of hair three times bigger than he is. The rest of the time it's not bad, though.

Mira doesn't have an undercoat which helps immensely. She turns the house black about 3 months after each heat cycle as she goes stark naked (like she is now), during which black hair can literally be pulled by the fistful, but otherwise she actually doesn't shed much. It's all or nothing.



And yet as others have said it's that short prickly hair that irritates me, and I'm glad none of mine have it. My SIL has a boxer mix which that hair type and I'm always itchy if I pet her because the hairs embed themselves into everything, including the clothes I am wearing.

I'll take annoying tumbleweeds any day.
Me too I just think its a normal part of having dogs LOL.
