Do any dogs not have bundles of energy?
The pugs we baby-sat weren't too bad actually. They were older dogs though. They spent a lot of time asleep in the sun or in anything soft (beanbags, couches, infant snuggle beds left lying on the floor....) that they could get onto.Their bursts of energy were pretty short lived. I could live with that :)
Older dog don't have bundles of energy. There is an old couple around here who we regularly see walking their large dog. If he took a run for it, they'd be dragged off their feet. However usually it is them tugging him along. I read somewhere that retired greyhounds make good non-energetic pets!
I've always liked both dogs and cats. I love being able to rough the dogs up and play with them, but I also love stroking my cat while she sits on my lap and listening to her purr. Having said that, my dogs have a much more positive attitude to life. When I come home, they are always so pleased to see me, and make me feel very loved. The cat, on the other hand, prefers to greet me by whinging about her day. ;)
Oh and I second what Wendy said about retired greyhounds. My cousin fosters one and is looking to adopt him permanently. She takes him to the park for a run, but mostly he is content just lying around.
