^these lol

There were several at my old club...at least 5 or so. Some were showdogs and yes, OMG THE HAIR. I'm still not 100% convinced there was a dog under there. Two were pet/companions that did some casual rally and agility training and were kept clipped. Super cute but AdrianneIsabel and stardogs nailed it lol

I looooove Old English Sheepdogs. I used to want one really badly until I thought realistically about it (the amount of hair, the size, and the activity level were all a bad match for me). But I still totally dork out whenever I see one.

My neighbors have one. Like people have described...he's SUPER silly. He's also very active and curious.

I knew a few who used to come in to the grooming place I worked at as a receptionist. They were very nice, very well-behaved dogs, however their owners were psychotic. I remember one who used to come for a shave down, and the lady's husband had one of those tubes in his throat, and the lady would INSIST that we thoroughly blow every single loose strand of hair off the dog after he was shaved because she didn't want any hair getting in her husband's tube, and she was a SUPER bitch about it. I wanted to say, "for the love of God, WHY didn't you get a standard Xoloitzcuintli instead of an OES????" lol. You know, OES look very houndy when nekkid.

There was also one FOHA had for a couple of weeks. He was sweet and dopey, and boy did he DROOL all over himself! A lot of that might have been stressing in his kennel, though.

There's four that live really close to me. One is my dad's next door neighbor and they had it since I moved here I guess 8 years ago. The other three I would see a lot at the dog park when I would take Ada.

They're all dopey for sure and lumbering. The dog park 3 are HUGE! Completely massive and hairy. Our neighbor always has his dog clipped very short and he is definitely a thick, stocky, just plain largely built dog. They really don't seem very 'herding breed' to me. The dogpark ones are very physical in their play in a way most herders don't seem to be.

From my limited reading they are more drovers than herders. So that doesn't surprise me about the build.

When I hear drover, I automatically think Rottweiler, so that was what I was basing my statement off of
