I answered "cheesecake"...because I want cheesecake.

My dogs are pretty much happy to do whatever I'm doing. If we're sleeping in until noon, and then spending the rest of the day watching TV on the couch...they will happily snooze the day away. If we're going hiking or going to the park or whatever, they'll run around to their heart's content.

Suzie is way less energetic then me. Granted, she is probably ten, and that is most likely the youngest she is, and she does have long black hair in Fl, so that could be a factor. In the winter, she at times is more active then me actually, so she's seasonal I guess
The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don't always soften the bad things, but vice-versa, the bad things don't necessarily spoil the good things and make them unimportant.

Frodo is also seasonal, though not very energetic in general. Getting him to do anything in the heat is just a fail.

In general Frodo is definitely a low energy guy. He will go out with me on nice strolls/hikes, but her certainly doesn't NEED it. He is content to sleep the day away, and on days that I start work with the rest of the world (8 or 9am) I have to lure him out of bed with treats to go to the bathroom

I am aiming for medium to medium-high energy for my next dog.

I answered way more. Dreizehn settles down VERY well but he could go all day long if I let him! I, on the other hand, am a rather lazy person lol. He keeps me healthy because I have to be able to keep up with him!

I picked cheesecake because it depends on the dog. Avdotya, loves running in the woods more than anything, but she is more than happy to sleep the day away as well. Chekhov is go go go all day long. If he gets adequate mental stimulation along with a bunch of exercise than he has an off switch.

I voted equal. Me and Chloe are both lazy for the most part but like to run around and have fun if someone else is game. Lol!!

Violet is more active than me, but It works cause I like to sit outside and throw stuff for her to chase, and she likes....chasing....stuff. XD

Like, a trillion times more active.

I'd be content to lay on the couch all day. Not my dog.

Whenever I walk with the older boys (Murph & Mick), they're constantly running ahead, running back to see why I'm so darned slow, running off to explore stuff in the woods, coming back to see if I've moved at all, taking off again to find squirrels, rabbits, deer... At home, however, they're content to snooze on the porch.

Meg is pretty equal to me. Up for big bursts a few times a week ("Hey, let's go climb a mountain!"), but more than content to do a day or two lounging in between.

There is no human on the planet as active as Gusto, and I'm including 7 year old boys on soda and pixie sticks in that mix.

hmm good question. I've never really thought about it before. Teagan is pretty active, but she is a dog that is ok with just relaxing all day, but that does'nt mean we dont play fetch or tug through out the day.

So in saying that she is pretty active, but has a really good off switch, but she still does need stimulation throught out the day.
