The Native American Shepherds
Thank you for sending the fur samples. I am happy to report that neither boy had a reaction! (Yaay!) I have to share with you how I was able to do the "fur test" without the boys finding out about getting a puppy.
When the samples came in the mail, I unwrapped them ceremoniously and told them that a close family friend generously offered to knit very expensive cashmere Christmas sweaters for our whole family. We would have to rub the "cashmere fur" all over us first, to see if any of us got itchy hives or stuffy noses. (Oh, they fell for it so easy!!) I even googled cashmere to show them pictures of goats! Too funny!
When they weren't looking I ran upstairs and rubbed the fur into their pillows and sprinkled it around their sheets. Tee-hee! (But seriously, I would've felt so bad if they had woke up with hives!) Luckily though, they were fine. I am going to do another "bed test" tomorrow night, but I think we're all set. Hurrah!!! Jennifer
"...Anyone that is allergic to dogs but always wanted one
should contact you. Dewey has really thick fur. I call him my wooly
dog. Kona is silky. Neither dog sheds except for their puppy fur and
I expect their winter coats in the spring. I brush out their burs when we
get back from hiking. I probably brush out more of my own hair then I ever
do from both dogs combined. I do not have any problems with my allergies
