poodle cat questions answered!

  • What breed of dog should I get? I am a cat person who needs a dog for protection. Suggestions? My house was burglarized recently. Having a dog for protection & companion would be helpful. I am single, 40's w/ 2 indoor cats. I have a fenced yard & 1400 sq.' house. I would enjoy taking a dog on walks, hikes, frisbee, etc. She has to get along w/ cats and visiting guests, but still be protective of property & me. I like calm dogs and want a dog that barks when there is a threat, not all the time. I prefer the appearance of big, long haired dogs, but is my house & yard big enough? I live in a hot climate, but may move to a cooler place in the next year or so, so breeds like St. Bernard's may be miserable here in the heat, is that right? I don't know much about dogs, so need suggestions. I like collies, shelties, aussies, golden retrivers. I don't like dogs that need special grooming like poodles. My cats are very happy & healthy here, and I would make sure the same is true for the dog that joins our family. Any suggestions?
  • What do you think of the python hunting contest upcoming in Florida? Idiots buy burmese pythons then let them wild when they grow too big. The snakes are decimating the natural wildlife in the Everglades & surrounding environs. An 18 foot long python can also easily make mince meat of your poodle or cat and maybe even you baby. To praraphrase meryl Streep in that old movie "The python ate me baby" (Faux Australian accent)
  • I need to find someone who is a boat captain and owns a boat? We are relocating to Chile and need to transport our pets (8 toy poodles, one cat and two reptiles), two adults and one pallet of personal belongings. We can ship our personal belongings through a cargo ship if needed to be so. The most important thing is the safety of our pets and we do not care to ship them through air cargo. We would meet the captain in the port of departure. Is someone out there who can help us?
