So. This topic cycles in our house, does it in yours? Every once and a while we think about how great pets are. Craig grew up with animals around pretty much all the time I think. We love cats, but Craig is very allergic and there aren’t any (cute) non-shedding, hypoallergenic options. And since we live in town, outdoor cats aren’t an option. But we also like dogs, more specifically, small dogs. However, owning a dog is a big commitment! I’m looking to all of my readers (however many that is) who know us, to leave a comment on this post about your opinion of whether or not we are dog people, if we should get a dog, if now is a good / bad time to get a dog, good breeds for kids, good breeds for allergy sufferers, etc.
So here are my list of pros and cons of owning a dog:
Picking up Poop!
Taking it outside in the wintertime
Taking it on trips vs. finding a sitter vs. finding somewhere for it to stay
The expense of haircuts, medicines, food
Liv will learn to love/not be afraid of animals
The joy they bring and love they give
With Craig gone in the evening, and winter coming, a dog would keep me warm company and help keep my spirits up. I’m pretty terrible at being alone. I have beautiful, sweet Livia most of the time, but she naps and sleeps too!
So leave your comments!
And here’s a couple recent pictures of Liv, for good measure!
