I have also seriously considered whippets, greyhounds, dobes and my biggest want right now is a Powderpuff Chinese Crested (I like the hairless too, but BF said "please no").

I don't know if it's that drop chest and itty bitty waist look, or the long, pointy snouts, or something else, but something about all of those above breeds has me captivated.

Ralph - Check out Chinese crested!! They're very cool little dogs, and if you're not into the naked ones, the powderpuffs look fabulous in a miami.
Look at this little CC puppy. They're born with MULLETS!

I have one, and he is a doll. He has such a wonderful personality. Kody was rescued from a puppy mill and was deaf until six month after he came to live with me. When he was neutered, they cleaned his ears, and removed tons of feacal matter and gave him meds to be put in his ears.... The pood baby must have been in horrible pain... I just love him to pieces!

I love the cresteds too! There's the hairless, and hairy hairless, and powderpuff - I think you can still shave the powderpuff to look like a hairless, no?

I love how the cresteds are groomed - the look like rockstars with the hair! And they look specatular when the hair is dyed.

My vote is Havanese!! But I am biased lol. I think they are great dogs. Happy-go-lucky, willing to please, they just want to be with you - very velcro dogs. They get along with poodles. They are small but very sturdy. I would love to adopt a rescue greyhound one day though. Have you seen the movie 50/50? There's a greyhound in that movie - he's so cute!

I am going to have to pick your brain on the Havanese. I have one that we found floating in my pool almost dead. I felt horrible rushed her to the vet and paid for the bill. She was chipped, we contacted the owner, and the lady said no that she didn't want her, and just the night before had opened the door and put her out. Well, she has lived with me since... but she doesn't like to be loved on, she hates to be brushed... she is very snappy.. Once in a blue mood will she come and jump in my lap and let me love on her.

Will post a new picture of Kody soon. He needs to have a bath and be brushed out. I don't keep his coat very long, as he is very curly. But has the sweetest face. I love the way he looks shaved, he has speckled skin

That is horrible!! I'm glad she ended up with you instead!! The typical personality trait for Havanese is that they are happy dogs that love people and children. Of course temperment can be affected by the dog's past history and breeding. Louis is happy-go-lucky with our immediate family and friends, but he doesn't like strangers right off, he has to get to know them and warm up to them. He hated children but he is getting better. As long as the child doesn't act rude. He doesn't care for other dogs other than Leroy. He loves cats. I have heard of some Havanese being great lap dogs, but Louis isn't much of a lap dog. He will want attention, but he doesn't like sitting in people's laps, not even my own. He will lay next to me instead. Whether a dog likes grooming just depends on training, and even with extensive training, some dogs just hate grooming. I just love the overall tempermanet of Havanese, they have a "soft" personality, follow you everywhere, and dote on you lovingly - at least that is how Louis is.

Can you post some pics of your Havanese?
