Linus, is a 4 year old Shetland Sheepdog, who is equal parts cuddle-bug and dare-devil. At least once a day we are treated to "flying Linus" where he races around the apartment (while Daphne barks at him). Linus also enjoys sleeping on the back of the sofa (I suspect he is part feline). Both of them are lickers and jumpers and big hits with the kids in the neighborhood - unless the kid happens to be on a scooter, which drives Linus nuts! (He's such a gentle little soul until a scooter passes - then he turns into a macho tough-guy...)
