I have a long history of loving dogs. I have stayed with 3 dogs until their death. I am a long time committer. My old man Leo was a Border Collie that I would take skiing and golfing. He was ball crazy and wanted to play with the golf balls. He also was a soccer dog. He had a flat soccer ball that he would bring you to boot and he would nose it back to you. He also would play volleyball with you and hit it with his arms or snap at his so that it would go back to you. I always wanted to go into competition with him. Bummer.
My home has a great leather couch and nice little cubby with a dog bed underneath a big dresser. This is where they usually sleep. It also has a glass sliding door which is great for the squirrels to tease the dogs.
I tend to take dogs around with me during the day if I am not working. They are great companions!!
A restriction is that I have a much loved cat who tolerates dog until he gets to know them, then loves them.
