    If you work 8 hours a day but you can take your dog with you to work or to daycare, write it on your application. A puppy's schedule doesn't mesh well with an 8 hour absence. Many people will return...

    I saw those and may order one to try since they are so reasonably priced. But they are synthetic -- in the other threads some did not like the synthetic over the real mohair -- but then as a kid I...
