I need someone to tell me what to do because I am seriously struggling making this decision on my own. Cisco and I REALLLLLY want to adopt a dog. There are lots of reasons but the main reason why we want a dog now instead of later is that i want a little therapy dog to curl up to me when i am not feeling so great. Cisco has 2 big labs who i have blogged about before and they have the cutest personality. Dogs just know when you are in pain and know when you are having a hard day. They are so cute and bring such fun happiness into the home. I would want a very small dog since we live in an apartment and i really am looking for a cuddly lap dog that i can pick up. We are pretty sold on the idea. Concerns? some people say you shouldn't have small dogs with young children and while we don't have any kids yet, we will in the next few years. Dogs are also quite pricey little guys. So tell me what to do. or vote on what i should do. if you have small dogs and kids, even better! what do you think? thanks. Oh and here are some of the dogs we were looking into adopting. they are all so cute!
