The mother of my first serious girlfriend had a sweet little dog with a regal bearing. He would always come up and make himself known when you arrived, tail wagging exuberantly. It surprised me how quiet of a dog he was at first, until it was explained to me that this breed of dog doesn't have the machinery to actually bark. It was a sweet companion, comfortable in your lap or by your side as you sat and watched TV, perfectly silent, and not terribly prone to shedding. When it comes to a quiet companion dog, you really can't ask for a better breed. Easy to care for, minimal grooming, and an overall pleasant personality.
