I like Collies and had a rescue smooth for a while. Too much hair for me to deal with. In the future I'll stick to my wire haired little guys with no shedding. I've wanted an Airedale for ever, but am too old now to have one.
Hehe the smooths actually shed much more than the roughs. My dogs go through major sheds once a year, or sometimes after a litter, but that's really it. I LOVE Airedales, those and bouviers were my favorite breeds to groom when I was doing it full time. You're never too old for a good dog :)
As for an update on Freyja, she appears to be jerking me around.
While everything else looks about the same, with her tail all floppy and her back end blowing in the breeze - but her udder has shrank up a bit today. I went and got the milk tests today and was going to start her tonight, but I might just hold off a bit as there is only so many days supply, after all *lol* The vet is coming out Thursday morning to do the ultrasound, so hopefully then I'll have at least a for sure on gestational age, although the breeder swears she is correct on last years foaling date.
I have no issue playing the waiting game, but I don't like peek-a-boo symptoms!
