I've been talking about getting a dog for yonks. I'd love a spunky little fella, but not hyperactive or untrainable. The current front-runner is a Schnoodle; I like my canine companions to look slightly wizardly. The big question is can I make this work with my job? I live alone and would have to get a walker to let the dog out during the daytime. But, if not now, when? What's going to change to make it any easier?
