They're all large.  But good call on the advanced climbing dog. 

Right now, I'm debating (for the Kobold) between a Dire Badger for the burrowing or the advanced Climbing Dog for the climbing.  I'd prefer a medium sized lizard that can climb or burrow, but I haven't seen one.

Shocker Lizard advanced +3HD makes it hit medium for +2 CR, making it CR4. Suitable for a 7th level paladin. It's a lizard, and comes with climb 20ft.

 Adding on the Earth Elemental Creature template bumps it up +1 CR (on a 5HD creature.. not sure how that'd wind up interacting with paladin mount HD advancement). Making it CR5, or suitable for a 8th level paladin.

Then it'd have both climb & burrow 20ft.

I'm sure there is something that could tweak those speeds up a notch though, kinda pokey as-is.

EDIT: Fixed CR mistake.

Doesn't the Magebred template increase speed?

Swift Breed improves one mode of movement by 10 feet.

Warbeast would improve all modes of movement by another 10', but sadly I don't think it could be applied to a paladin mount (magical beast).

Ooh, good call on the Shocker Lizard.  That makes a lot of sense, and the climb thing is bound to be useful.

Because of my build (Cloistered Cleric 7/PrC Paladin 3/Sacred Exorcist 10, taking Holy Mount at level 9, and using Persistent Divine Power to qualify) when I first get a mount I already have an effective 12 paladin levels... so having a higher level mount to start is fine.

Why be a shiny elf? They're not as rare as shiney pidgeys.

And this is in spite of Pidgeys having a larger population.

"Just what do you think the moon up in the sky is? Everyone sees that big, round shiny thing and thinks there must be something round up there, right? That's just silly. The truth is much more awesome than that. You can almost never see the real Moon, and its appearance is death to humans. You can only see the Moon when it's reflected in things. And the things it reflects in, like water or glass, can all be broken, right? Since the moon you see in the sky is just being reflected in the heavens, if you tear open the heavens it's easy to break it~"
