If we do get a...

Dog. It will most likely be a Havanese. 
Love, love, love this breed.
Highly intelligent, people pleasers with a laid back temperament.
They can't knock down small children, or jump up on counters, or get into garbage cans. their poo is miniature, VERY important.
 They don't shed! 
They live long lives and they are so CUTE!!!
Are you familiar with this breed?

You are correct about Havanese, as they are fantastic dogs. I helped an Alaskan friend procure one from a reputable breeder in the lower 48and they are thrilled to death with little Lucy.

I would vote for the small pooper. We had a 130 lb Shepherd and he left ginormous landmines in the yard..it was AWFUL.

So are you going tomorrow to pick out your pup?? ;)

PS I respectfully suggest if you are going to get a Havanese that you look into rescuing one... I Googled Havanese Rescue NJ and found several.... the rescues typically are not problem dogs, but only need a better home than the one they came from, or else their owners died and the family did not keep the pet........ just a thought.... xo

I must be clear that the dog is a "future" plan!
Ina, thanks for the research and I will DEFINITELY consider a rescue dog. Our cat was from a shelter and althought she was a littel...crazy, we were happy that we adopted.
