    I live in a city just outside Toronto called Whitby. Almost 2 years ago I saw an ad on craigslist announcing the birth of a few sphynx cats. I have had cats for years but usually rescues. I decided to call the lady to see about her cats. Age/needs/price etc. It ended up that the lady breeding the cats was a parent at the school where years before I was Vice Principal. We chatted on and off about them for a week or 2. I finally went to see them and fell in love with one of the boys. At that time his name was Cujo ( he was a handful) We decided to get one and talked about how he would adjust int he home with a 90 lb Boxer. She gave great advice and they became fast friends, albeit after a couple of tense weeks where the dog wanted to play and the cat saw his life flashing before his eyes. Now however, they are inseparable to the point where when the dog goes outside Ned waits by the door for him to return. I can't see not having a sphynx at any point in the future. :Laugh:

    Welcome, bbedford! You will love having a sphynx in your life! Also, it's cool that you live near Toronto, which is where the sphynx breed originated!

    Welcome, bbedford and Ned! I love stories about cats and dogs being buddies. Sphynx always seem to be especially good with dogs. Would love to see some photos of your 'kids'!
