An outfit with out 'hair' is not a COMPLETE outfit. I care for many shapes, sizes, breeds, and levels of energy. Every furbaby tells their story of who they are by how the relate to their walker/sitter when their owner is there. I have seen confident, hyper, happy pee-ers (lol), etc. No furbaby is the same and thats what always keeps me on my toes and it is always fun and interesting.
