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!
