assuming everything goes to plan ie moving and a few other things, im planning to get another puppy - however with all the troubles with fletch i dont think it will be another american cocker !

top of my list at the moment is a norfolk terrier but wondering if any of you had any other possible suggestions.......it must be smallish no smaller than the norfolk but no bigger than my cockers! it must have hair - dont mind if it needs grooming but nothing too high maintenance - and something that will fit in and keep up with the boys and a child !

Odin has a pretty sister  :whistle: lol. I agree with Izz  :yes: .
He is your friend, partner, defender, and your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.

Handle every stressful situation like a dog.
If you can't eat it or play with it,
Just pee on it and walk away

Izzie ive thought about it but to be honest, from what ive seen of the breed i really dont think a lowchen would be suitable.

And no no shelties they not my cuppa tea sorry......

id say a maltese is too small - having said that i quite fancy a long haired dach- though maybe standard, or a griffon !

Out of the ones you have listed I would go for a Griff rough coated the people in the breed seem friendy, Stewarded the breed at Crufts 2011 I have a friend that breeds them nice dogs.
I would not buy a Norfolk the breed is dominated by two big kennels can't say they were friendly either, have stewarded them as well.
