What type of hair would they like? I chose “furry/soft” because it’s closest to the cats that he knows and pets and sometimes uses for pillows. Otherwise, I really don’t know. He hasn’t shown an aversion to any particular type of dog fur, and I can’t exactly ask him!
What breeds of dogs do you like and why? I like big dogs best. They always seem calmer and better to be around when they are well-trained, and they seem stronger and healthier to me. I like dogs you can pet, that can warm your feet, that you can hug without breaking, that can run with you. Breeds that come to mind are German shepherds, labradors, retrievers, Great Pyrenees, and mastiffs.
What breeds of dogs don’t you like and why? I don’t like small, yarky dogs. They seem delicate and nervous, like they are afraid of the whole world. I don’t like chihuahuas, toy poodles, or pomeranians.
Do you have dogs in your home? Not currently, although we have in the past and occasionally we watch my mother’s dog when she goes on vacation.
Are there other pets in the home? What kind and where do they live (inside, outside, in a cage, if in a cage are they ever loose in the home)? We currently have two cats and a Jersey wooly bunny. The cats are primarily indoors but sometimes go outside. The bunny lives in a cage; she comes out for playing and brushing occasionally, but only with constant supervision.
Is there anything else you would like us to know? Kender is blind, so the “feel” of the dog tactiley is important. Kender walks outside a lot, especially in the summer, so a dog that can keep up would be great.
Next up is the video. My plan right now is to create a sort of screenplay, then fill it in with the video I have and take any new video that is missing. I’ll set up the screenplay as its own page off Kender’s and just blog about the changes and updates. Pending approval from anybody who happens to be in the video, I’ll post it all on Kender’s page when it’s done.
