Not for me. But a good friend of my fiance just lost his 18 year old Sheltie-mix to kidney failure. And we are trying to help him think about another dog. But we're having some trouble thinking of a breed . . . so I thought I'd put it out there: The prospective owner: Lives in Phoenix, so HOT! Owns a house with a yard Travels alot, so would need a portable dog (not TOO big); but he's traveling by car, not plane, so it doesn't have to be tiny . . .just small enough that he can find hotels that will accept it. Likes "cuddly" dogs Is very overweight . . . he'll walk the dog religiously, but it needs to be something he can keep up with Has a quirky sense of humor Has obnoxious relations that barge into the house without warning, often making lots of noise and yelling. (In fact, one reason we are trying to encourage him to get another dog now is that we are terrified that his mother will deposit something totally inapproprate from a puppy mill with him . . . even if he tells her not to. She DOES things like that) The previous dog was a Sheltie-mix . . . I suspected some Corgi and maybe Golden in there as well . . . friendly, happy little dog. So, ideas? Everything I can think of off hand falls down on one of the requirements . . . or, like a miniature poodle, is something I know we couldn't talk him into.
