Yes, a dog was also a deciding factor for me in changing to a Forester.
Picked "cara" up a few weeks ago...
Shes a Chesapeake Bay Retriever, not very common in the UK.
I used to own a black lab. Was an excellent hunting dog and even better family pet. Taught my daughter to walk. My daughter would crawl over to her, hang on and the lab would slowly get up and help her step across the room. Quite amazing to watch and most who saw it could see it was deliberate and not a fluke.
The recent "fluff" I own is very different in type of dog but again has an incredible intelligence. Surprises most people.
They truly are a gift.

What great pics.
I lost my beautiful Pepper to cancer in
Dec. Ripped my heart out.
Love'em and hug'em,
they are all so wonderful and
give us so much.
So sorry to hear you lost your dog, pepperblues... :( That's something I'm afraid to even think about. My dog is like my four-legged fur-child, and he's not getting any younger either (he will be 10 this year in August).
