The OH wants a pug dog, and has convinced herself (and nearly me) that it's a good idea. It's smallish, friendly, sociable and so on.
Thing is, we both work during the day, and her friend has rightly pointed out that it could get bored or lonely, chew everything and be a right mess.
Any thoughts or words of wisdom?
Edit: should have said - I'd generally go for a cat, myself, as it'd be more independent and less likely to chew stuff up; but the OH much prefers dogs, and is generally fairly allergic to cats.
