Our daughter graduated in four years while playing soccer. Pretty good! Then she came home and somehow talked us into buying her the puppy she’d always wantedâ€”not our finest moment. She had plans to move out in a week, but that did not happen; so what had been our quiet empty-nest house suddenly got much noisier with a yappy little dog in it! Looking on the bright side, our daughter gave some thought to the breed and chose one with a very friendly temperament that doesn’t shed.
