I don't know about you, but a tiny, yappy dog is not for me. So when we went on a search, we wanted something bigger than a cat. (Else, why not just get a cat?)

Portia is a black collie mix with medium long hair. She's great with cats and small animals, not one to pull the leash out of your hand barking at squirrels, and is generally laid back. Except with the mailman. I've seen that poor guy jump like he was zapped with a cattle prod when our quiet front door turns into a frenzy of barking and growling as he tries to stick our mail in the box. The funny thing is, she's a perfect lady when out on walks meeting people! But that mailman....!
