I have owned 14 month old lola for almost 4 months now. We adopted her at 11+ months old. It was at the end of last July and she was shedding quite a bit then. I brushed her yesterday and could hardly get any fur off of her! I know it is winter and that she has a heavier coat. Is it normal in the winter for them NOT to shed at all? Are there certain times they will shed more than others?( most likely spring??) Since I have not owned Lola a full year- I do not know what to expect--- many of the posters talk about the big deal of shedding. Thanks for any insight on this!
