Totally not helpful at all, but I just have to say that I get the shedding thing too. Dance and Journey shed like crazy, but their shedding is tolerable for me because it wipes off easily and floats to corners for easy pick up. The Doberman shedding OTOH, drives me nuts. Those little hairs get absolutely everywhere and into everything and don't like to come out easily. I like that they shed slightly less than the hairy two, but it's definitely more noticeable to me. If I could I'd have non-shedding dogs... but I'll take shedding over constant grooming any day, and the breeds I like don't come in non-shedding varieties anyway lol. But yeah, the hair everywhere does get old. Eta: one day I should take a picture of the roof of my mom's car. Ripley and Winston's hairs from their heads are imbedded into the fabric never to come out no matter what.
