When Curtis and I were growing up, we were both the child that begged (bugged) our parents for a dog. We both always wanted one, but never got one. My mom said that she didn't want to get stuck taking care of it, though I always swore to her that I would do everything, apparently a 6 year olds word doesn't count for much :) But once Curtis and I got married we realized we could finally do what WE always wanted to do. So, finally, we got out selves a dog; a little miniature dachshund we named Ziggy. Unfortunately our sweet Ziggy is no longer with us and we have decided that, when we can, we are going to get another dog. And this is where you guys come in!
Our Ziggy was the best dog. So smart, sweet, cuddly, laid-back, but energetic. He was perfect! So, since we felt we had the perfect dog, we are worried that no matter what, any dog will fall short (though I'm sure we are just being silly and protective of our dog). So, I am wanting to know what you all think. What is a breed that you really like or that you know is really good.
We have been doing some research and we have a list of a few, based on the kind of temperament we are looking for and dogs we have always wanted to have. Thus far, we have listed....
Great Dane (I have always wanted one)
Miniature Schnauzer - This is my first pick so far
Husky (Curtis's top pick)
Are we missing a great breed? What do you have? What new dog should we bring into our home?
