The best size dog is…
For me, the perfect sized dog is one whose head ends up right under my hand when she walks by my side.
Since I’m about 5′ 7″ (170 cm) tall, that means the perfect dog will end up in the 50 pound range.
But here’s the thing. I live in a small house.
I only have love seats because there’s no room for standard couches. And in our bedroom, we have to move Honey’s crate to put our clothes away because it blocks our dresser drawers.
Adopting a small dog?
However, while doing foster puppy duty for the SPCA, I discovered we have just enough room in our bedroom for a crate that houses a 10 to 15 pound (4-7 kilogram) dog.
Hmmmmm, is it time to adopt a friend for Honey? Time to do some research.
I wanted to find out what it would be like to have a small dog so I went right to the source. Who better to tell me what it’s like to live with a small dog than Dexter the talking Yorkie?
We-ell, maybe I’ll just keep things the way they are.
