    LOL!
    One medium, one small, two big personalities.

    It's all relative ... The dogs we had tended to be in the 75+ lb range. So I think of medium as maybe in the 50-70 lb range and small as in the 15-30 lb range. Anything below that is XS or XXS. We had a 90 lb yellow lab and 120 lb German Shepherd (neither of them overweight -- just big) -- big enough to knock over a full size BBb tuba if they weren't paying attention. So instruments never got left unprotected on any floor they could get to.

    I have two K&M stands, one at home and one in my car for practices. It is a very sturdy and well made stand and has no problem holding my heavy Miraphone 5050.

    Also ... keep in mind that protection against dents, bent valve stems, and other mechanical damage is one thing. A floor stand may adequately protect against that. But a floor stand won't protect against finish damage or non-catastrophic gouging and scratching.

    I know I'm late to the party but I came up with a solution for my 321 along the lines that Gary mentioned earlier.
