Or a cat. I'm not quite sure. I'm swaying more towards a dog because i look after my parents dog sometimes and im so used to him that i feel like im more of a dog person.
I have a 5yr old DD. Live in a small 2 bed house with a good size garden. Just a bit set back from the main road. I dont work a lot of hours (2-4 voluntary 2 days a week) but when i do move into more hours of work obviously it'll be in term time hours so ill need a dog that is ok on its own for a while. Depending on where ill be working i could pop in on my lunch break just to break the loneliness. At first i looked at all the ones i love. But realised they'd probably be far too big for my house and judging by my parents dog (hes a newfoundland) i know all too well that my house is too small for a newf. I dont want a really small dog. I dont want a massive dog. I just want around average size. If thats possible. Any advice?
