Woof! Woof!

I've decided that next year I would like to have a dog. Being that Liz and Katie will be at school and have homework, etc, in the afternoons and at night, I would like to have something that will want to snuggle me after a long day at work. Thus, a little baby dog is just what I need!

These are the desirable qualities in a potential puppy:
  • Baby-sized (or small to medium-sized)
  • Doesn't shed much
  • Gets along meow-cats
  • Light enough to be put in the bathtub
  • Will get along with Thor (Ronnie's boxer puppy) and children
  • Isn't on aggressive breeds lists
Here are some of the breeds I am considering:

American Eskimo Dog - Ranges from 9" to 19" tall. Great with other dogs and kids. Sheds more than I would like, but is a cutie dog anyway. 

West Highland Terrier - This is the Caesar dogfood dog! He is about 10 to 11" tall and weighs 14 to 22 lbs. Sheds a bit. May not get along with cats.

Samoyed - Another beautiful dog! About 21 to 23" and weighs the most yet at 45-65 lbs. This dog sheds a lot. Likes pulling things because it used to be a sled dog :)


  1. I like the last 2 selections :). Less fur = less hair on EVERYTHING haha. Don't wear black around a white dog...I want to get one too. Prob a medium sized dog. The sucky part about a dog is that they aren't like a baby. Sure you can teach them but they can't grow up and go to a mcdonalds or other places while kids can.

  2. i was thinking i might buy you a dog as a gift. that way i get to choose what kind of dog you get, genius isn't it. -Ronnie

  3. Yay! As a gift for what?? :) You can choose the dog, but I'll choose the place to pick him/her out! muah ha ha! Also, I just had a dream that I got a puppy that was only 5lbs and then he never grew and stayed baby-sized forever! lol
