Small Space St. Bernard?

September 19, 2008

You heard right! According to Adrienne at Apartment Therapy, St. Bernies love living small. So do Mastiffs and, believe it or not, Great Danes.

While the Living Smallers are feline fanatics (okay, Persian feline fanatics), we both bear soft Spots (pun intended) for the Fidos and Rexes out there. So, when I clicked through to this post about little-lovin’ doggies, I got a bit of a hankering for my own small space pooch. Here are the breeds AT recommends, based on their tolerance for small spaces and their love of the great indoors:

  • Chihuahua
  • Dachshund
  • Pug
  • Bichon Frise
  • Pekingese
  • Bassett Hound
  • Whippet
  • Mastiff
  • Great Dane
  • St. Bernard

My pick? The Mastiff or the Bichon. I want either a big dog or a dog with big hair, I suppose.

What kind of animal(s) do you have? Are you a puppy person? A cat addict? Into iguanas? A fan of fish? Rabid for rats?

(Okay. I’ll stop now.)
