    Willow is going through a coat change. This is the second time she has shed very heavily. She is two years and three months old now. Anyway, it is amazing how much she can shed on a daily basis. Who needs sheep for wool, just spin up a Sheltie's coat shed into yarn and you could clothe the neighborhood. :)

    I see lots of vacuuming and grooming in my near future. As a lark, I looked for poems featuring Shelties and found this which made me chuckle.

    Have some room for me to groom
    As there is no forgetting —
    Everywhere you’ll see my hair
    As I’m the king of shedding!

    And I’m a playful animal
    Who is extremely smart!
    The greatness of my brain
    Is only exceeded by my heart!

    I will play with you all day
    I know where you belong!
    That’s by my side — so smile wide!
    Then pet your Shetland Sheepdog!

    Love the poem, Glenn! Very creative and so true! I try to groom my five all in one day and hubby always calls it "snow globe day" for the fur flying through the air. Yep, I have four vacuums too, Lisa! Just invested in the new Shark Rocket Pet Pro Cordless. Love it!
