There are times where I really consider getting a dog. They’re great companions and just so happy all the time (well, usually) and my kids have been really asking for one.
Then, in the next moment I can hear the neighbor dogs barking and it drives me crazy. Dogs are so much louder than cats who only seem to make noise when you’re taking too long to pet them or get them food.
I don’t really care for noise. I have enough with three kids running around me (they’re currently fighting with light sabers in front of me) and we have a newborn on the way at the end of the year. Adding a dog would compound that noise and we’re already at max, but that may not be the case!
VetStreet shared a post that features the quietest dog breeds — yes quiet dogs! I think if we do ever really really consider adding a dog to our noisy family, we will be picking one of these breeds.
