|Mulder, a soft older rotty was what I was thinking, too. We're also thinking about danes and he likes greater swiss but I don't know much about them and I'm not sure he does either.
Alyssum- He wants a big chunky cuddly dog that he can roll around on and sleep with and wrestle. As fun as our little dog is, he wants a big.
The other aesthetic stuff, like drooliness and fluffiness, isn't that important.
More about him..
He works 5-7 days/week, usually around 10hrs per day but frequently longer. He thinks trained dogs are 'robots' and doesn't want to 'squash a dog's personality'. He thinks dogs can do no wrong and if they're snotty that's just who they are and it's ok because they're dogs and that's what dogs do. I drag him to the dog park but otherwise his idea of exercise is propping the door open so the dogs can run in the yard. He hates to even tell a dog 'no' and wants to be able to be 100% nice to a dog and have the dog be nice back.
I'll be around for the rules and structure side of things, but the less I have to do, the better.
Should also be noted, before any conclusions are jumped to, we own a house and two cars together, are essentially though not legally married, and I am around all day. His lack of time is only worth mentioning because a super active dog would be overwhelming for him.
