Default Find Me NextDog: Saurus Edition v 2.0

I was trying to think of my ideal pack, and realized that I have very conflicting wants in one dog - I don't want two to suit my needs, I want one that does it all.

Wants:
Bigger than 60lbs
Non-shedding or longhair - absolutely no lab or GSD coats, although I waver on whether I'd tolerate a Vizsla/Dobe-type coat.
Medium to High energy as an adult
Dog park dog
Jogging companion
Swimmer

Off-leash dog would be lovely without being a necessity.
A snuggly dog would be nice, but I don't have a huge preference on a velcro or aloof temperament anymore. I like velcro with the ability to give me some personal space.
I would kill a barky dog. Otherwise, Aussie or Rough Collie = YES.
A dog that can be taught to retrieve would be great.
Grooming is not a concern, I enjoy it. If I can't do it myself I'll pay for it.

Let's brainstorm again, all I'm coming up with is a Poodle or Poodle mix.

Other than the swimmer part (not completely sure if they are swimmers or not) what about a Borzoi?

Then I can live vicariously through you until I someday get my own.

What about a Curly Coated Retriever? A male would be big enough. I'm not sure about barking with them.

They're a little smaller than your ideal size but a Barbet would fit most of your requirements. Larger males can get up to 60lbs.

I just came in here to say Barbt, so I can have barbet pictures.
They are smaller though, 40-60lbs.

Sounds to me like a male standard poodle meets all your wants
