I have three kids aged 13, 9, and 18 mo. We're thinking about getting a dog. We haven't had a dog in years. I know it's a big commitment and responsibility and that scares me a bit. I feel like I'm up to my ears with responsibility right now but then again, as a child I always had a dog and have such great memories. I want that for my kids. It's been 7 years since I've had a dog.
My husband is pretty stuck on a golden retriever or a lab. Any thoughts? Anything to help me to narrow my choices? What do I need to be prepared?
Thanks in advance!
