We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
How big? Kind of funny proportions (longer fur would even out the contrast between barrel chest and spindly legs), but nice and intelligent stance. Does it shed? My golden is prettier, altho he is untrainable (even the trainers said so) so we never bred him, for fear of adding more disobedient golden retriever genes to the pool. Also, the shedding is out of control (fill up a Dyson with just the living room area rug fur)
