We've been dog sitting a friend's dog this past week. He is a rescue dog whose name was Patron, but the owners wanted to change it - but for some reason has never gotten around to finalizing it. We liked Shippo, b/c he looks a lot like a fox - but he seems to answer mostly to fluffy. It is soooo different from having a lab. He just LAYS there! A total lap dog. I don't know what kind of dog he is, I think he is the round and fluffy kind. He kind of waddles instead of walks--.
