    I know a welsh spaniel who is gorgeous, loves agility but is generally very laid back.

    But I wouldn't like to be checking her coat for ticks.

    I keep thinking jack russell or fox terrier or tenterfield terrier would be the go for little dog that is up for agility, but it is at least as energetic as a cattle dog.

    Personally of all the farm dogs, I think the cattle dogs are the most laid back. Ie they're happy to do their own thing if there are no jobs from the boss to do. They're not like a BC that is constantly in your face looking for something to do.

    Sharyl I thought you were getting a Gordon?
    I still would dearly love a Gordon, but we did the sensible thing and narrowed it down to small dogs, we just don't have the space for a larger breed

    We won't be living here forever though

    Well well well, Sheltie baby!! When?

    I'm trying to trap my parents with their words to allow me to have a hairless breed would just be perfect, I agree!

    I had to laugh when you said it, it just seemed so funny to think about, but to watch that video, like I said before, OH MY LORD!

    He is like a lightning bolt! and so precise! In the slow motion he looks like a stallion!

    I have never been a fan of the cresteds... but after watching that what a stunning breed of animal to watch in action!!!

    Going by what you've described you want, a Min Pin won't suit you. They are quite delicate -- look robust, but unfortunately with small dogs it only takes one misstep from a bigger dog and you can have broken bones, sprains, all sorts of problems. I have trouble keeping my two out of the way of Carl zoomies, and he's only 4x their size (and 10x the weight!).

    MPs are also very drivey. Getting ours to adjust to a kitten has been difficult. If you like the terriers/spaniels, why not consider a Cairn Terrier or Norfolk Terrier? Carl is a cross, but he has all the best traits of a Norfolk. His coat is easy to take care of, non-shedding but just a little poofy if I let it grow out. He has a very low prey-drive (but is incredibly laid back anyway, so not sure if that counts ), always tries his best to please, and is *very* intelligent. Cairns and Norfolks are on the lower end of the energy spectrum, although I can vouch for the fact they like to dig!


    like a rolling thunder chasing the wind...
