My hubbie told his uncle we were going to get a dog in the future, his uncle said we shouldn't get one because the hair could be a problem for our daughters lungs, if she kisses the animal or something. I told my hubbie I wouldn't let our daughter kiss the dog, nor would I either. Would shedding hair be a problem? I hoover everthday anyway, and I could brush the dog everyday too, it won't matter. Turkish people don't understand much about pets, so I am sure he is over dramatising.
