With the inevitability of a move coming up at the end of July, we have to find a place that allows pets. We only have the one cat, but I want to get a dog. Don't get me wrong, I love cats, but I'm really more of a dog person. I've narrowed my search down to either a Miniature Schnauzer, or a Yorkshire Terrier. I've had a Yorkie before, and Nettl's had a couple of Schnauzers, so we're aware of the needs of each breed. Their personalities aren't all that different, really, so it's a hard choice. The thing that makes me shy away from a Yorkie is the upkeep--more hair, more care--especially in the nether regions. Yorkies can get Crusty Butt pretty quickly, and that's a pain. My Fritz needed to go to the groomer every six weeks, and that can get expensive.
So here's a question for Monday. Should I get:
- A Miniature Schnauzer
- A Yorkie
