Not that weird. I have whole albums that function as soundtracks to particular books. Blind Guardian's A Night at the Opera is forever linked to Guy Gavriel Kay's Tigana. Smiley

Quote from: Conversation from yesterday
Me: You're late for work.
Employee: You don't understand sir, God called me to save a baby turtle!
Me: What?
Employee: I was just driving down the road and all of a sudden this turtle came out of nowhere, it was defenseless so I put it in my car.
Me: What did you do then?
Employee: Well I was planning on letting it go over by a ditch, but when I opened my door, it was gone!  I think it escaped.
Me: From your car?
Employee: Yep.
Me: Roll Eyes Whatever man Roll Eyes.

Quote from: Conversation from today
Employee: [Strolls into parking lot in new car].
Me: I see you got a new car.
Employee: Yep, it's my mom's.
Me: Why?
Employee: Remember that baby turtle I told you about yesterday?
Me: Yeah.
Employee: Turns out it didn't escape.

What's the best medium to large sized dog for a lazy, inexperienced apartment-living owner like me? I was thinking a greyhound, but other recommendations would be nice too.

Basset hound. They're medium sized, just short legs. Greyhounds might be much too energetic for apartment living. Bassets puppies have (in my experience) 20 minutes of hard play in 'em a day, the rest is chilling out or sleeping.

Actually greyhounds are some of the laziest dogs around. They are literal couch potatoes. They do nothing but are very calm, loving dogs. Depending on the size, they might be a bit big for a cramped apartment, but they won't be hyperactive. It is necessary that they recieve regular walks, however.

I really can't recommend any dog to live in an apartment. Every dog should have its own yard.

Oh wow, I had no idea. The only greyhounds I've ever been around were at a lake near where I grew up. I guess since their owners were playing with them and they were exercising I thought they were high energy all of the time. Thanks for the correction.

I'm pretty sure there are a metric ton of greyhounds that need to be adopted. Every vet office I have ever been in has had fliers for retired racing dogs.

Absolutely. Lurchers, whippets and the like are all the same too. If a greyhound is too big, a lurcher might be more suitable - they vary in size quite a lot depending on what the other half of the cross is but many are smaller than greyhounds. Ours is about half way between a greyhound and whippet in size and otherwise looks pretty much like a pure breed greyhound (but as they're crosses of course the looks vary also). They need regular but comparatively short walks (they want bursts of speed not great long rambles) and most of the rest of the time they sleep. They're great with kids, placid and very quiet (if ours barks more than once in a week she's being noisy).

What's the best medium to large sized dog for a lazy, inexperienced apartment-living owner like me? I was thinking a greyhound, but other recommendations would be nice too.

Basset hound. They're medium sized, just short legs. Greyhounds might be much too energetic for apartment living. Bassets puppies have (in my experience) 20 minutes of hard play in 'em a day, the rest is chilling out or sleeping.
Actually greyhounds are some of the laziest dogs around. They are literal couch potatoes. They do nothing but are very calm, loving dogs. Depending on the size, they might be a bit big for a cramped apartment, but they won't be hyperactive. It is necessary that they recieve regular walks, however.

Oh wow, I had no idea. The only greyhounds I've ever been around were at a lake near where I grew up. I guess since their owners were playing with them and they were exercising I thought they were high energy all of the time. Thanks for the correction.

I'm pretty sure there are a metric ton of greyhounds that need to be adopted. Every vet office I have ever been in has had fliers for retired racing dogs. 
Yea, when I take mine for walks I let him go in fields (generally not a good idea for a greyhound if the area isn't contained, but he is an exception) and he lets out all his energy running like crazy. That's probably what you saw, and in that case yes, they would most certainly look EXTREMELY hyperactive.  Cheesy

And yes, there are plenty of greyhounds that need adopting. I know of several prison programs where prisoners train the dogs to acclimate them to domestic life and train them, that is where I got mine. They are wonderful pets.

I would recommend a cat.

I'm highly allergic to felines, unfortunately.

Bulldogs tend to be pretty lazy and low-maintenance.

English? But don't they always need to visit the veterinarian because they have so many health problems?

You could get a hairless. What about a Donskoy?

If your area gets particularly hot and/or humid, I would not recommend a bulldog. They don't do well with the heat, it really aggravates their breathing problems. I'd love a bulldog, but our 110+ degree summers make me refrain.
