Adorable Rene, I've  had a few, they're feisty wee things but adorable. Two we had used to fight over who got to wrap themselves round my dad's neck when he was in his armchair, the other would lie in his lap. That was in the days before remote control TVs so if my dad wanted another channel, he would shout my mum through from the kitchen to turn it over, so the dogs weren't disturbed. He loved those dogs.  :o  Photos please..

Congratulations on the new pup!
Just a word about the pads though, I have a friend that used pads for her dog as a pup. She's somewhat housebroke now at about 3 years old, but still thinks it's ok to pee on a rug that even closely resembles a pee pad.

I learn something new every day. I hadn't heard that before, but it makes sense.
I'm sure you guys will enjoy a lot of good times with him.

BTW, if there's no pics, then he really doesn't exist! ;D

So many wrong answers in a single thread

Of course, the Border Collie is the best breed, sillies!

What's good about these pads is that the bottom is lined with some type of plastic so it doesn't soak through.

You said several times throughout the thread you wanted a small dog. One rung up from teacup?....That's a small dog!

Reminds me of my neighbors. Years ago this Chihuahua was running around the neighborhood lost. A week went by and it was still wandering around. My long time neighbor was getting concerned as much as I. I just could never trap that little bugger. He was quick! We finally cornered him and my neighbor took him in. The notices went up all over the neighborhood. As well as calls to the local animal shelters and vets. No ID chip. No replies.
After close to a month of failure in finding the true owner, it was off to their long time vet with a new permanent family member. All was well. A lucky find.

That Chihuahua turned out to be the most spoiled dog on the planet! Their best buddy. Both dog and rescuers were a very happy family for the rest of dog's days.

Congrats, Rene! I truly hope your puppy grows up to be just as special!

Last night was the first night living with us and away from his siblings. Went to sleep at 11:00, woke up at 3:00 and had to pee and poop. Went right back to sleep and woke back up at 8:00. Doesn't get much better than that.   :) :D

Oh my he's cute! Has he got a name yet?

Just thought newspaper as a different feel from the pad, you could put pad under the paper if concerned about him thinking ok to pee on carpet.  Just a thought. He'll probably be fine.

Oh and one more thing, watch him if you see any great Danes,  my first chihuahua went for the jugular of a great dane with no provocation and he was a real quiet chap normally  :o

His name is Buddy. I changed my signature yesterday. I guess you didn't see it. That's OK.

My most favorite dog breed has been my Newfoundlands. They are the best with people, children, and other animals.  Everyone and everything is their best friend. They are called gentle giants and are true to their name. No barking unless in play with these guys.
To bad they are 180 and 145 pounds. Not lap dogs even though that is where they want to be. Maybe I can use another RV as a tow for them when we go out. :D

How about a Pet Rock?  They're quiet, clean, don't eat much yadda, yadda.
I suppose since this is an RV forum the smaller dogs will win out . 
But my choice is Greyhounds. We travel with two.
What's the best dog??  You'll know when He or She looks at you.  Something will go SNAP and that's yer dog.

Rene T:

My suggestion is simple: Let the dog pick you.

Go to one or more "no-kill" pet shelters. When there, get permission to go into the cage with dog(s) you feel an odd bonding with.

If you're fortunate and find a litter, again, go into the cage and sit down. Without any motion on your part, see which dog(s) come to you. We've been extremely fortunate in the past when faced with a lost of a dear one. We've done this and have ALWAYS found the PERFECT one for us.

Let the dog pick you. ;) :)

Reminded me of this...

A guy is driving around the back woods and he sees a sign in front of a broken down, shanty-style house: "Talking Dog For Sale." He rings the bell and the owner appears and tells him the dog is in the backyard.
The guy goes into the backyard and sees a nice looking Labrador retriever sitting there.
"You talk?" he asks.
"Yep," the Lab replies.
After the guy recovers from the shock of hearing a dog talk, he says "So, what's your story?"
The Lab looks up and says, "Well, I discovered that I could talk when I was pretty young. I wanted to help the government, so I told the CIA. In no time at all they had me jetting from country to country, sitting in rooms with spies and world leaders, because no one figured a dog would be eavesdropping.
"I was one of their most valuable spies for eight years running. But the jetting around really tired me out, and I knew I wasn't getting any younger so I decided to settle down. I signed up for a job at the airport to do some undercover security, wandering near suspicious characters and listening in. I uncovered some incredible dealings and was awarded a batch of medals.
"I got married, had a mess of puppies, and now I'm just retired."
The guy is amazed. He goes back in and asks the owner what he wants for the dog.
"Ten dollars," the guy says.
"Ten dollars? This dog is amazing! Why on earth are you selling him so cheap??"
"Because the dog's a damn liar. He never did any of that."     ;D
