There are wonderful puppies and dogs that come in a variety of breeds, shades, and sizes.
However, I was one who preferred large dogs over smaller ones.
The only small dogs I ever owned was a Poodle and a Chihuahua, and I did not keep the Chihuahua too long. I was not crazy about the tan puppy I named “Peaches”
If I was to get a small breed of dog it would be the Beagle and the Shetland Sheep dog (Shetland’s are in the Collie family).
A gorgeous-looking stray Beagle with blue eyes wandered to the front of my yard years ago when I still lived within the home I grew up at.
I was in my thirties and I would have taken her in, but I did not know where she came from and if she was free of disease. I did not want to take the risk.
My next-door neighbor ended up taking her in and I regretted not being the first to scoop her up as one day she came over to me and ignored my neighbor who was calling her to come back.
I had to pick the Beagle up and hand her over to my neighbor. That is the only way she departed from me.
There was something very special about that dog. We connected instantly.
