    OOO What a handsome gentleman! Seizure alert dogs are a special breed in themselves. It's a job that 90% of all Service Dogs can not do.



    My girl, is a Medical Alert/Responce dog.

    Looking any munchies that may drop to the floor

    He is a beautiful dog. That's good that you finally caved and gave in. I hope all goes well.

    Furminators are wonderful!! My girls don't shed like your boy does. They do "blow" their coat once in the spring. My cats however shed constantly!! I use the Furminator on those long-haired fall balls once a week and it does wonders preventing the massive fur bunnies from blowing out from underthings when the door opens.

    I send all my groomed fur to a friend of mine that spins it and then weaves or knits it into wonderful things. Don't think it strange. People Wear wool, angora, and alpaca. Sheep, bunnie, goats, and, er, well, alpaca. Just think about snuggling down in an warm kitty cat fur scarf!

    He is beautiful. Exactly the kind of mix my man wants. Seizure alert dogs are amazing.

    I have a cat who is part Malamute. I vacuum every day.

    My he is gorgeous!!! When I had two dogs that shed like the dickens you would always find hair in the house..Both Amy and Sassy would seem to "throw" chunks of hair out. Yes, I would brush them, comb them and was tempted to take the vacuum to them too......but didn't. LOL
    Now I have one and there is still lots of hair to contend with..and that is fine...love her to bits.

    My mom use to always say, the sign of a good dog is how much they shed. Don't ask me where that came from, but she use to always say that, and growing up we had a shepard mix with a collie, excellent dog, and yes he did shed.

    Beautiful dog.

    Yukon King recently had his first medical emergency. OMG! It was as bad as having one of the kids injured. He had a plugged gland and overnight, he had chewed through his own skin! He has recovered very nicely, but I don't think I will ever get over finding him that way first thing in the morning. While King was recovering, I had to give him huge antibiotic capsules. My neighbor gave me a wonderful tip. Make a half sandwich of peanut butter, put the capsule in the sandwich, and give it to him. Easiest way to feed a dog a pill! The only problem is that my dog is now addicted to peanut butter!

    If you always do, what you have always done, The results never change. Change is the wings you give yourself.

    He gorgeous. I love German Shepards. I know what you are talking about with the hair. I don't even put my vacuum away because it gets used everyday and more than once on my days off. I have two shedders but love them both to death. I've just recently heard about the siezure alert dogs; there was an episode of the Good Wife that had one. I have a siezure disorder and they are trying to find out what causes mine; I've had 3 over 18 yrs and no real known cause. Good luck with your wonderful new pet.

    Beautiful dog.
    My two must be the best dogs on earth then. If I didn't vacuum two or three times a day my brown carpet would be white before the weekend hit; you'd see no brown at all.

    What a beautiful dog and friend. I live with a shedder also, little short haired rat terrier but she sure sheds. Love her to pieces and is 15 years old and going strong.
    Live and let live!

    He's absolutely gorgeous. I'd plan on brushing him daily to cut down on the hair shedding inside. Also plan on vacuuming 2 - 3 times a week, to pick up the rest. But its all worth it, isn't it, to have a buddy like him looking after you and sharing your life.

    Those of us who love them know that dog hair can be both a condiment and a fashion accessory.

    He's such a handsome fur baby. Glad you have him to watch over you.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.
