Mine woke me up this morning by running across me and puking on the carpet. Yay.
Heh, our dog did pretty much the same thing to my husband this morning. Yay.

My husband was a postman for several years, and as a rule he was far more wary of small dogs than big dogs. He was lucky in that he was never bitten while on duty, but his colleagues who were not so lucky were more often bitten by little yappy dogs than the larger breeds.

On the topic of poor breeding standards, one of the most shocking stories I've come across is that of Rosie the chihuahua. The poor little thing barely looks like a dog at all, but she's a highly inbred purebred. Thankfully her new owners are giving her the best care possible.
