When I'm not spoiling my Pei Pals at home, I am usually in the company of some other dog breed. As a dog trainer it's an occupational hazard. And as owner of a petsitting business I also get the opportunity to work with just about everything under the sun. Today I had to exercise a tortoise. But that's not what this entry is about.

This entry is about what a neat and unique breed Shar Pei are.

For example, I have 5 Pei running my household right now. And unless they have a really good reason they don't bark. Not when I leave. Not when I get home. I have heard Bernie bark exactly once since he arrived in March. The first several months I had Mulan....dead silence. They are just quiet dogs. Other breeds (which shall remain nameless) tend to bark a LOT. Falling leaves, phantom mice, no seeums, changes in barometric pressure.....they bark. And bark.

Oh but I could go on and on and on about how cool Shar Pei are.

But I wouldn't want all the other breeds to feel inferior to our wrinkle pups now would I? *wink*
