Mine are papillions. They are so darn cute and look like so much fun to be around. I would probably only last and hour or so though!

I also have a huge whippet crush and would love to borrow some whippets. Ideally some puppies, 2 or 3 or five! I would lie in the grass and die a happy death as they did adorable whippet puppy things all over me!

Your turn!
You're in Ont.. If you aren't opposed to the long hair variety we could let you borrow Dekka's Bounce and Dash In return I demand afghan snuggles though..

I borrow GSDs, Chihuahuas,Samoyeds,Rottweilers and mixed breeds quite a bit. It really gives you an in depth look at the breeds. Kinda nice having the ability to "borrow" other breeds!

No one is brave enough to want to borrow a basenji?

I think I would like to borrow a Malamute for a while...

It's not that I think all of those breeds don't suit me, but it sure would be nice to try them all out for a while and see if I actually would enjoy them. They all sound good in theory, but living with a breed is entirely different.
Mudis BARK. A lot. Just so you know. Interesting dogs but bark bark bark!

Oh! I forgot one! I'd love to experience a good, stable BC. The ones I've been around have been completely understimulated working-bred BCs in pet homes who think that daycare is enough to keep their BC satisfied They sound like really amazing dogs when properly cared for though, I'd love to get to know some better.

I know. But they're so much fun in other ways! There was one that used to demo in some obedience classes I took like 6 years ago and I loved her. But she definitely had a love for that very shrill voice of hers!

Ha! I think he and your girls would have a lot of fun. Although when Zing is older, he'd get ideas of KoolSheps :O

We have a girl for summer help at the grooming shop and she told me that she wanted to steal Savvy. I was impressed, most pet type people do not say that after spending time with him LOL

I have actually gotten to "borrow" quite a few breeds in a sense since being a dogsitter. I was very close to the Rottie that I watched for 2 years and helped to raise him. I actually think I could live with a Rottie, I really connected with him. He was easy in a sense, but a challenge in another. He really just had a good soul if that doesn't sound too cheesy. Only thing I could have never lived with was his resource guarding and somewhat human aggression but I know that's not a breed trait per say and was likely just him and the way he was raised. But yeah out of all the dogs I watched for long periods of time... he was the dog I really just "connected" with. However I most likely wouldn't seek one out because of the short-ish life span and health issues. But it's a breed that, if thrown into my lap, I could easily live with.

Then, on the flip side, I definitely know what kind of dogs I'm NOT willing to live with also. Beagle mixes and me don't mesh. I've been around a few puggles often, I also helped raise a Boston Terrier/Beagle, and now the same owner has a JRT/Beagle, my grandma's Foxhound... just... not the dogs for me.

So dogsitting has actually given me quite a taste of a few different breeds and to be honest most of them don't appeal to me (as in I wouldn't go seek them out to purchase). If anything, it's made me realize how picky I am with my dogs.
