    I was a cat person for years as i am allergic to dogs. Then, I saw a mini pincher with short hair and thought I might get away with this. Turns out I was fine yet still allergic to dogs that aren't this small.

    My brother had a Poodle and these are supposed to be okay for people with allergies. He is okay but I am not. So anyone looking for another option could consider these little dogs.

    Word of warning, are high energy and a bit yappie, so daily walks recommended.

    Cj- They maybe Pigmy Goats. Just a thought. I love goats also and miss not having them around. But funds dictate no such animals at this time.

    Coppice--would love to see a pic of them. My brother has two rag doll cats. As two can keep each other company when they are at work, and to play with.

    Penny--yes quite a few breeds of the terrier family require a lot of exercise or playtime. Did you ever look at getting a Wheaten Terrier. They are suppose to be great dogs for people with allergies.

    I love dogs. I had a dog at my house. It was a Labrador that I bought it from an exhibition. It was a very lovely dog and I really liked it very much. But last month it got dead after consuming the food with poison that some others kept for killing the stray dogs. I am very much sad about it:(. Now I am in search of a new dog.

    I think I'm basically a dog person but this was my last old guy :) I always thought he was kinda lazy in the hunting department and would prefer to just wait for the birds to land in front of him.

    Roy--that is so sad about your dog being poisoned. I would think if you checked with your local humane officer or the DNR they would tell you that poisoning critters is illegal. That is really not a good way to deal with the situation as other animals can eat the poison bait, like your poor dog did. :mad: That would make me hopping MAD and I would probably turn the people into the authorities.
    Why don't they live trap the dogs and take them to the humane society? If there is no humane society in the area there is always the Town Constable who will come and pick up a stray animal.

    Island---that is a very cute cat. I love his white markings around his nose. I would have named him, Wishbone and that it what it looks like to me. YES, boy cats are not good mousers. Usually the female cats are the ones that hunt.

    Eva-I also do like cats. But not to have as a pet.

    Bigg--she looks so comfy on your sofa. Love her color. She sounds like a great pet and I love her name also. I had a Molly once and she was one of my favorite dogs.
