Hey! I was just on my profile and just realized I'd never responded to this ages ago! I'm very happy with my boy! I am used to having pretty lazy dogs, although my Miniature Schnauzer is active when he wants to be, he's never been one for activities. I've not done too much with Chomper, but he is speedy in mind and actual speed! So, I'm hoping he'll take to sport well - though I don't doubt he will! I'll probably have Miniature Australian Shepherds forever now, even if the barking trait can drive me a bit bonkers! He doesn't alert bark....yet....just play barks and barks at the door when he wants to come in. By the way, is TeenHelp forum gone now or what?
