I can't take care of anyone's pets, I'm happy to be able to walk the short distances I do with my walker, that's why. I'm happy I can keep my plants (fig tree) in living room healthy.

Awww. What care would the pooch need? Open the door to let him in and out, feed him, make sure he has water. Leave the poo for your daughter!

Oh Mikala please you have no clue how much care this dog needs -- I can't just open the door to leave her out, she would be gone. I don't have a yard, live in a small apt.

We have a border collie and a rough collie. They are momma's boys, but they like me. Right after we got them, they found four kittens. We kept two and gave my sister the other two

My others are both 15, one a 10-pound Pomeranian with one giant tooth, and the other a mini-Aussie, about 30 pounds, who is showing her age a lot but still delightful and keeps busy when awake (guards the door).
That seems to be the norm but with my girls, they lived to a good-old ripe age. My yellow Lab, Lady, who was 75 pounds lived to be 15 1/2 and her daughter, my Katy who was part Lab and part Catahoula, died May 10, 38 days short of turning 16. She was 50 pounds. Their vet was quite surprised at their longevity. I miss them both so much.

Brittanys are great dogs. If I ever get a dog that's not a GSD, a Brittany spaniel is on my short list. I have a friend who does Brittany rescue.

To the poster thinking about a malamute. Unless you are prepared to put up with a lot of dog hair, I wouldn't get one. They are sweet dogs but their shedding is epic.
