No, this is not my dog.

This is not my dog, but I want one so bad!

I got to play with my friends' puppy pug on a recent camping trip to Shenandoah National Park. Unfortunately, I think it would be cruel to get an animal right now because my husband and I would have to leave it alone in the apartment during the day. A cat would be awesome, but my husband is allergic. Moreover, if we got a pet, we would have to find a way to bring it to Israel with us--which might involve a lengthy quarantine process. This is a real bummer because I love animals: cats, dogs, birds... you name it!

My dream dog is a Vizsla, a Hungarian hunting dog that is both beautiful and hypoallergenic. I will have to wait a few years before I can get one. Do you have a dog? What is your favorite breed? Mutts also rock, in my opinion. My parents have two!


  1. Hey Emily, the Vizsla looks cool. I want a Greater Swiss Mountain Dog and an Old English Sheepdog someday.

    GSMDs are called 'the poor Swiss farmer's horse' and are bred to carry/tow enormous weights (there's a youtube video of one pulling 2800 lbs). The dream is to live in Boston and let my Swissy carry my groceries home for me. :-)

    I hope you and Dave are doing well. Peace.

  2. One of my best friends has a Vizsla named Diego. He's a fantastic, beautiful dog.

    We have a mutt.
