Thinking of getting a dog to join your family? Well choosing a dog to become part of your life is just like finding the perfect partner that connects and enhances your life. Big choices in life, but always worth it when love is concerned. So that’s why it’s important that you choose the right dog for you.
There are so many amazing pooches to choose from! Our furry friends come in all shapes, sizes and dog personalities too.
If you are like my peep, you probably already gush and awe at every little wagging pup that you pass. However finding “the one” is what truly counts. When my peep was thinking of adding a dog to her family, she had to consider her lifestyle. First she was living in New York on the fourth floor of a loft building in the middle of the West Village. She had already had two cats and worked full-time, but with a flexible schedule. She also knew New York was not the easiest place to have a dog, especially when it came to space and good green places to walk a dog.
She wanted a dog that loved to walked but didn’t need being rigorous exercised. She needed a smaller dog that could navigate the streets and of course she wanted a wagging and expressive tail. It all summed up to being me! The happy-go-lucky beagle. Oh yeah, she also wanted a dog that was easy to train, but that is another story.
Just like peeps, dogs come in
- All shapes and sizes
- Long hair, short hair
- curly, double coats and wavy hair
- With tails, without tails, curly or whippy
- Some need more training that others (like beagles!)
- Some are walkers, some are runners and there are some that will just enjoy your lap.
