I'm a dog person, no question about it, but I don't dislike cats either. If I could choose, I'd so be a dog owner though, starting today! My last, and only one that's actually been my very own, dog passed away almost two years ago and not a week goes by that I don't miss her at some point. When I was growing up, we had other dogs at home and it feels so weird not having one. There's only one way to fill this empty spot in my heart and it's getting a puppy.
The most wonderful dog there ever was, a wire-haired Dachshund
Unfortunately that's really not a possibility right now, financially speaking especially. Pure bred dogs are expensive and there's insurance/vet costs to consider too. Also, our lil man would never leave the poor puppy alone! Nevertheless I dream of becoming a dog owner in the near future and envy all those people I see outside walking their wonderful dogs.
I miss cuddling with my furry baby :(
I've already told my husband that next year's Christmas, the lil man and I have only one Christmas wish: a puppy. And I'd like it to be a small pup, since we might have to cross the Atlantic at some point, and I don't want to place my dog in the cargo. So I've decided, based on the character of the breed, that we should get a Coton de Tulear :) Husband obviously disagrees, since he'd like a Rhodesian Ridgeback, which is certainly not a lapdog. We'll see what we end up doing.
Any dog owners/lovers reading this blog? What kind of dog do you have/would like to have?
