*Three Year Old Stomp* I Want a Dog!

The upstairs neighbors not only annoy us with loud noises after hours but now have a howling dog (which we aren't allowed to have by the lease) to annoy us during the day. Only thing worse than not getting to have a dog till May is being constantly reminded of the fact by a sad dog.

I want a dog!

I don't know what kind yet (small lap dog that preferably has hair instead of fur). Any suggestions?

Here are some of my top picks based on cute encounters:

The Maltese

We owned a Maltese for years. Her name was Spooky because we got her on Halloween and she was white as a ghost. That dog barked at everyone but I loved her so much. She followed my mom around everywhere and slept at her feet. Spooky loved my mom best because mom fed her. Mom also was in the house the most out of all of us so Spooky never barked at her.

The Pomeranian
A friend on a softball team owned a Pomeranian. It was so little and cute and even if it was biting hard I barely felt anything!

The Shih Tzu

A friend from school had a Shih Tzu and I always thought as a puppy it looks like a mop-head running around on the floor.

The West Highland Terrier (Westie)
I don't know why I've always been drawn to Westies. My aunt had a Scottie and I like how Westies are basically white versions of Scotties.

The Yorkshire Terrier

Again, I don't have many experiences with them but I have heard good things and think they are adorable.

The Scottish Terrier

Like I said earlier, my aunt had a Scottie and I always think of Lady and the Tramp when I see one. They seem so wise!


  1. Of course I'm partial to Maltese, but I would not have a Shih Tzu...our friends who have them are totally owned by them! They are so barky and irritating! Terriers are little dogs who think they're big least they're not little cowards like a chihuahua. That's my two cents. If you get a Westie, though, I get first dibs on puppy-sitting...and might skip the country with it!

  2. I've been reading good things about the French Bulldog. They are small, smart, and don't need much exercise. I really want an English Bulldog, myself. However, I am married to a Golden Retriever lover, so we have to get a Golden first, then I can have my Bulldog! :)

    p.s. Scotties are great, but they are territorial, and need some exercise and grooming. Definitely not a lap dog, but very loyal.

  3. some of my friends here in town recently got a pair of Shih Tzus. they are hilarious!

    and thanks for your comment! it's been a long time.

  4. I dont know anything about the Maltese but they are cute!
    Pomeranians can be very territorial and I personally don't like that in a dog intended for living in a house where guest come over.
    Shih Tzus are notoriously hard to train and house break. I believe that a dog should listen to you and Shih Tzus are known not to listen.
    Yorkshire Terrier are my least favorite dogs. Everyone that i have meet has been annoying and very bad to their owners. My mother-in-law has two and they never give her attention and poop and pee everywhere, not to mention they have chewed up a whole door in their house. My cousin has 2 and they are super loud and bossy.
    my friend growing up had a Scottish Terrier and i really like him.
    I still think that my Pekinese is still the best dog ever ;)
