I am totally a dog person!  I would love to have an Akita or Siberian Husky.  However, my wonderful fiance is allergic so alas, no Akita in my future.  I wouldn’t mind a Shih Tzu or Maltese since they’re hypoallergenic but the FI says no to that too so, maybe we’ll just get some fish???

I have one kitty, and it looks like he’s going to get his sister’s kitty too, yay! (she has a big dog that’s stressing out the poor little cat), so obviously, I like cats! But we really want a dog later on, once we’re not moving around and living in downtown apartments. Hopefully we can find a good little lapdog-sized mutt at the shelter. I don’t really believe in getting purebreds, since they cost too much and a lot of times have serious problems because of being so overbred. But a sweet little mutt with the right personality type would be great!

I want a dog (from the Humane Society) that is 40 or so pounds. he wants an 80 lb dog…so I think we’re going to settle for a 60 lb one.

I’m crossing my fingers that he’ll fall in love with a dog on the smaller side….

After not having a dog in the house for nearly a year, I’m really jonesing for some puppy love!  I’m trying to find a small Spaniel this spring – probably a Cavalier King Charles or possibly a Springer, if the right litter shows up.  Cross your fingers!  I already have a horse (whee!) but I can’t really cuddle with him on the couch….

We rescued a shih tzu after we got engaged and I would love to get another dog for him to play with once we have some more room. Our dog is handicapped and we both have a real soft spot for special needs animals… I can see us with a whole clan of three legged dogs and blind cats…

My Fi and I were planning on getting a dog a couple weeks ago, but just with out work schedules it wasn’t the right time.  Eventually we would like to get a Daschaund and a Brittany Spaniel.  The Brittany is for my FI and the Daschaund would be for me! I grew up with weenie dogs and I want a smaller lap dog so badly!!!!

I’m with you Mrs. Bee!  I want some land to have a whole menagerie!  We have 2 dogs now- a grumpy 11 year old maltese and an over eager 60 lb. Plott hound.  My FI has banned me from entering any and all shelters lest I started adopting more and become a crazy dog lady.  I’m definitely hoping to have chickens and goats a few years down the road.  A bit difficult in our current suburban Chicago home, though!

I’m a big dog person.  I love labrador retrievers and grew up witht them.  It will probably be awhile before we have a house big enough for one though.  We are talking about getting a miniature schnauzer.  That was the first kind of dog my parents had.

FI wants a dog so badly!  We live in apartments though, and neither of us can just can’t justify spending the additional amount to have a pet.  We also don’t feel we are home enough or that they would have enough space right now.  Maybe after we get married I’ll get him a dog….but then comes another issue.  I may not be the biggest pet person, but if I had a pet, I think I would just feel so badly leaving them outside that I would want them to come inside.  The problem with that is that I absolutely cannot stand pet hair being on the floor, the furniture, me….In the end, we’ll probably end up with a dog and will compromise on where it stays (outside in a nice weather appropriate home, in the garage, or in a specified location inside)…guess we’ll have to wait a few more months and see!

We currently have two little dogs a silky terrier and a mini doxie. We are desperately looking for a puppy boxer, we both want to add a big dog to the mix. We love animals and are always rescuing something (cats, dogs, birds, whatever,lol)

We both want a Sharpie (spelling?) so badly! And I definately want a cat as well. (He’s not a big fan of cats but I figure he’ll grow to love it – or ignore it) Unfortunately we have to wait until we settle in one country or another before "starting our family"

i currently have a kitty, but he lives at home with mom and dad. once we get married, i’d love to get a westie or a yorkie pom. i’d also like to get another kitty in the future! ALSO, in the distant future, i’d love to have some goats and cows!
