    I think they're friggin' adorable and considered them before I got my first mini Aussie. The shedding thing was what deterred me. My dogs are with me all the time in my house, office, and pickup.

    The shedding thing has kind of slowed my want for one too, I have mainly carpet and I can't imagine vacuuming every day.

    I want a ACD so bad though, how much do they shed? :p

    A surprisingly high amount. They are double coated and blow the undercoat almost constantly.

    You can kind of combat it by having a groomer regularly do a deshedding treatment, which involves a deshedding coat shampoo and a good blowout.

    My mini Aussies shed too, but I regularly brush them and take them to a self grooming place, where I use the powerful blowers to get the undercoat off. I also trim their feathers and booties quite a bit with thinning shears. I never notice their hair on my or in my house, but I see it all over my dark gray carpet in my pickup; I have leather seats so it isn't on the seats.

    Ha, I forgot about the double coat, i just love the breed, I've had 3, but all outdoor dogs. I'd like to find a really good dog to come inside at night since i'm either alone or there with my daughter. I think I'll just get a chihuahua. :p

    Dog hair is an accessory, no?

    I had an ACD. They do blow their coat like twice a year. The times between that is not so bad. Regular brushing and an occasional bath will keep it under control, HOWEVER, I didn't have carpet so that might act like a fur magnet I don't know.
