marge, you can always ask the mods to edit the title for you.

as far as animals for pets go, i'm an all around animal lover too. i was raised with dogs and cats, and have had birds, reptiles, and fish.

we currently have 2 cats (rescues), 4 huge goldfish, a turtle, and 2 parrots.

as soon as i have a bigger house, i'm going to a shelter to adopt a dog, preferrably a mutt of some kind of husky, malamute, collie, or german shepherd mix.

DW and I are definitely dog people. We have a purebred Irish Setter and a Basenji/Yellow Lab mix.

Having said that, when we first got together we had 5 cats between the two of us. Every last one of them was inherited through previous relationships. While we certainly loved our kitties, over the years they eventually made their way to that great litter box in the sky, and we just never adopted any more. The last one, Winston, was an orange tabby who lived to be almost 23.

Funny, that is the way the dogs act with my Hubby, but with me they run up excitedly and sit down right in front of me and calmly wait for a greet. I think with dogs, they do what they have been taught by that person. Sometimes we don't realize we are teaching them things.

If you don't have a fenced yard, your first two choices are not good choices, BT because of what the breeds are bred to do--huskies are hard dogs to manage in an urban environment, ditto re Mals. And, they are often not good with cats (read that--cat killers) or birds. GSDs can also be not-cat-friendly--high prey drive. There is often a reason a dog ends up in a shelter. I am partial to the big drooly dogs...but I bet your boy would really like a goofy Lab or LabX ... "Boy, throw the ball, throw the ball, again, throw the ball, throw the ball....what do you mean you're tired and hot? Throw the ball, Boy..."

CWS has a good point, especially regarding cat friendliness. And labs are such sweet dogs.

I would also recommend a beagle. Mine loves cats.
