Dogs are the best companions. I have wanted to own a dog for at least a few years, but haven’t been able to do so because of my work and personal life schedules.
I leave the house at 8:00am, and will sometimes get home as early as 5:30. There are some weeks, however, where I don’t get home until 10:00 three or four nights a week. I don’t want to get a dog only to leave him / her alone all day and part of the night. I think at a bare minimum, I’d like to be away for 4-6 hours per day.
Some of my other goals will enable me to leave my current job and afford me the freedom to work from wherever I choose. Once I get there, the dog will be soon to follow.
The doge I prefer is a German Shepherd. Like the picture, a black and tan saddle is the type I like most.
They are intelligent (third most intelligent breed of dog, behind border collies and poodles), obedient, highly active, and loyal. They remind me of myself. Funny, I haven’t seen anything about German Shepherds being humble…
