Is it wrong that I want a dog? Of course not, most of you would resound. However, what you don’t know is that I’m a diehard cat owner. I love my cat. LOVE, which seems weird to most, but my cat rocks. However, when my life settles a bit (like I have a yard and I’m home most nights so I can bond with the animal and obviously let it out to pee), I’d like to add another family member into the mix.
- Shiba Inu. My dad fostered one of these dogs for a small period of time and I fell in love with him. His name was Hachi (which means eight in Japanese) and came from a puppy mill. Needless to say, he had some problems adapting from years of abuse and mistreatment. This breed is from Japan and a medium-sized dog. I love the coloring and its wolf-like features. This is my No. 1 choice!
- Swedish Vallhund. I just came across this breed last year walking the streets of Lincoln Park with a friend. Its little short legs crack me up. Again I like the coloring and its mini-resemblance to a husky.
- Papillon. I’ve been a fan of this little dog since a Zyrtec commercial came out, although I can’t locate it now. This is a really small dog and I’m not sure it would be a fit for me and my lifestyle, but I still think they’re adorable from afar.
