To want or not want a dog?

I want a doggy. But then I don't want one. And then I want one again.

Here are the cons:
-They get stinky
- I hate the smell of pet food
-You have to pick up their poop
-They might bark too much and annoy the neighbors
-It might be mean to me....
-Shed.... eww I hate hair
-What if it's sick.... that's expensive!
-What to do when I travel?

Here are the pros:
-A sweet little thing to cuddle with
-I'll have someone to enjoy casual walks in the park with
-I'll have something to talk to when I'm home alone so I don't feel crazy talking to myself
-They are just so darn cute

My practical side and my dreamy side are at odds right now. I don't know what this girl is to do. The husband doesn't want one... so there is no way I can convince him if I'm not fully committed to wanting one.

Hmmm..... maybe I just need to get a stuffed animal dog and sit it in my lap and pretend it's a real dog? No... that's not the same thing.

What do you think?
