Your toughness is made up of equal parts persistence and experience. You don't so much outrun your opponents as outlast and outsmart them, and the toughest opponent of all is the one inside your head." - Joe Henderson
We have a German Short-haired Pointer. Don't know if they are similar to the Retrievers but ours sheds like crazy! LOL! Way more than our lab. I figured she wouldn't and that's one of the reasons we got her. Wrong! Little, short white hairs everywhere!
She's great to run with though. The vet said she's okay to run the whole marathon distance with me. He said I'm gonna reach my limit *way* before she does. She's bred to run though the fields all day.
She's been a really good dog so far. Not really hyper, very smart and great with the kids.
Mrs. H is almost ready to give the green light on a dog. probably going to be a shelter dog but am looking for recommendations on breeds - gotta be good w/ kids, not shed a ton, and likes to run but won't go insane if it doesn't get to exercise every 20 minutes.
