Thanks everyone for sharing your adorable creatures.
I just thought I'd let y'all know that I've decided that I want my first dog to be a boston terrier. First I have to wait for my old neurotic cat to pass on. I don't want to ruin her life any more than I already have by taking in another cat and having a baby.
I have gone back and forth between shi tzus, japanese chins, chihuahuas, pekinese, pugs. I love them all and want one of each but at least for now, boston terriers are at the top of the list.
