Moving to the country-might just get a puppy...

:party: Hubby and I are moving back to the country. Yay! We willl have 40 acres at our disposal. I haven't had a dog since Seb died, and part of the reason is that we haven't had the time or the room for a dog. I wanted the dog to have the option of roaming around outside, and to have our full attention so.... I am a little unsure of the breed we would want. I was thinking like a golden retreiver or a lab..., any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Seb died because of a genetic defect (he was a german sherpard crossed with a pembroke welsh corgi), so I will be carefully gaurding my heart this time... Anyways, I am not impartial to adoption-actually I would prefer it cos I always think of those poor pups at the rescue shelters, etc., first. *Note: The dog would have to be kitty friendly. :confused: Help! It has been 7 long years since Seb passed away...

Your suggestions were great, and by chance we ended up getting a relatives dog that was a heinz 57 mix, lol. He is a very intelligent older dog named Ringo and he is our snorty pig boy, heh, that's his nickname around here. When he was a pup he would get in trouble for excessive whining so he came up with a snorty piggy grumble that he uses instead of whining ;). He is a wonderful, too smart for his own good type of boy, to our delight. He also likes to chase rc airplanes for some reason, lol.
