    I still think an ex-racing greyhound would be perfect for you.

    They seriously don't need as much exercise as most people believe and the ones I've met on doggie walks have been lovely, gentle creatures that are happy pootling along beside their owner.

    Funnily enough, a lovely Scottish lady was on the phone to our support dept at work and she used to train dogs. The guys mentioned I was looking and her best recommendation was an ex-racing greyhound.

    She said they have excellent temperaments and nothing like people imagine

    I agree with Dawn on the retired greyhound front. I know a few people through my rescue work who have them, and a couple of 20 minute walks a day usually does them! They tend to be couch potatoes, very laid back and very loving.

    Yep. Sounds exactly the same as Goliath is.
    His idea of a good time seems to be to antagonize the big dogs until they get tired of him and then go hide behind your leg.

    Moron dog.

    And yes, they're so ugly, they're cute.

    Tom (... not for me though...)

    yes! Alysia and her boyfriend have a gaggle of itty bitty dogs. Frankie mated with a tea cup maltese, Sugar. They have Leroy, Mickey and Minnie. Then they have this behemoth pit bull named Bruno. You would not beleive the things Bruno lets these little dogs do to him! He is so gentle and puts up with so much.

    Right now we only have one dog. Her name is Sahara and she is a boxer/pit bull mix. But she is hyper! She also thinks it is her house and that everyone who comes in is coming to see HER. She is also crazy about strawberries and anything strawberry scented. Plus, she won't leave the cats alone and wonders why they don't like her

    I heard that teacups have a very short lifespan? About three years. Don't know how true that is though.

    I'm really glad people have mentioned rescue dogs. I know very little about them and the process you go through to adopt, but I do think the right dog would be an ideal fit for you. If you do go for a greyhound, a friend of mine is very involved in the rehoming of greyhounds in the nw and does a lot of fund raising in her area. I can put you in touch so she could reccomend a reputable rescue?
