Lil' Suzy
SuzyWhile my father-in-law is recovering from bilateral knee replacement surgery, my wife and I are baby-sitting their dog, Suzy.  Suzy is a Pomeranian.  Although she looks like a puppy, she's full-grown.
 
She's groomed in such a way that she looks like a minature lion in that her body is clipped very short while her mane is left full.  When she's sleeping she can easily be confused for a stuffed animal.  There's absolutely no denying her cuteness.  Her intelligence, however, is in question.  She knows her name, but ignores you when you call her. My wife says her 'come here' is broken (literally verbalized as, "c'mere is broke").  Actually when you call her, she just spins in circles---like there's a short circuit somewhere.  She's house-broken, but when you let her outside, she Suzytakes forever to decide to do her business.  Thankfully, she doesn't seem to have any issues with our other dogs.  Actually, she ignores them.  Come to think of it, Suzy's behavior wouldn't be suspect at all if she was a cat.
 
That said, I do adore her.  When she gets in your lap, she stays there.  She sleeps in her little house (kennel) all night long with nary a peep. And did I mention she's cute!
