Yeah I've been told that Nextdog should be really be my last dog. 3 is just SO MANY.

Which is fine, because I am planning on only having 2-3 dogs for my entire life but sheesh.... it's my choice.

My family all likes my breed choices for Nextdog so that's good. My family however, does not all like Mia. It's kind of sad, she's such a good dog. They just can't get over how loud she is, I guess. It's all I hear about.

That and my step-family all make jabs at little dogs constantly. They're lab people and don't get the papillons or my fondness for papillons.

It's funny--I have a skittery, weird, bonkers dog, but no one in my family has ever said anything negative about her to my face.

My boyfriend's cousin said she 'must be stupid, huh?' because she barked at her. That wasn't about her breed, though. owel.

If you want a Crestie, get one! You're never going to please everyone!

As much of a screwhead as Frodo is, I've never had my family speak bad of him. Even Ryan's family doesn't say mean things about him (at least that I've ever heard, lol), and they've never had dogs let alone one like Frodo!

Even with the rats my mom was like "Why do you want rats?" and then was like "Okay, well I want pictures!"

Clingy. If you don't want clingy you need another breed. You can't train that out.
Clingy wasn't the right word...I expect to be followed everywhere and essentially attached to the hip when I'm home. I guess I meant anxious. I want a dog that can be okay without me or with others when need be.

Yeah I've been told Mia's stupid because she's loud too. Apparently the deciding factor in dog intelligence is how much they bark. Yup.

That's such a weird comment, I'm surprised to hear it's widespread.

I actually hear that quite a bit. It makes absolutely no sense.

Maybe people think that 'being intelligent' for a dog means being 'good' and good doesn't include noise?

That's exactly what my family thinks. Smart dogs are calm, naturally well behaved, not demanding, and don't make a sound.
