The Ragdoll is known for having "dog" like traits, they can fetch, they love to follow their humans from room to room, and "help" with everything, from showers to putting something together, and if they can't help, they will let you know of their disappointment. They say the Ragdoll breed is not talkative, but in my experience many of them like to talk, maybe not as much as others, but they are not "quiet" when they want something. If you have a door closed, and they are on the other side, they have an uncanny ability to knock and knock and knock until you let them be with you. They seem to get along with most other animals and people. I like people who have little toy dogs, as a Ragdoll typically gets quite a bit bigger than many of the toy breeds of dogs.
I am glad things are going better now.
