Why I Love Little Dogs

Little Dogs Rock!

May 29, 2019

I love little dogs. The smaller the better. I'm not sure where my love of these tiny creatures comes from, but if I can put it in a purse, I'll take it! Having a small dog is great for so many reasons. You can take them places you can't take a big dog. You can pretty much live anywhere you want with a small dog. Not to mention, you can have a few of them. It usually costs less to care for a small dog breed because they require less food than a larger dog. It’s not unusual for dogs of many small breeds to live between 12-15 years, or longer. Small dogs are often easier to travel with, than with larger dogs since small dogs can often fly in-cabin with you if you travel by plane. Flying with a dog in-cabin is also less expensive than traveling with a larger dog as baggage.

Small dogs are also accepted at many more hotels and motels than larger dogs. Many hotels and motels won’t accept dogs that weigh more than 20-30 pounds. Some establishments, such as retail stores and even restaurants, will also allow small dogs to visit when they will turn away large dogs. You can pretty much take your little furry friend anywhere. My Savannah weighs 4 pounds but don't let that single digit fool you. She thinks she is a Great Dane. She's fiesty and protective. If you've ever thought of getting a litle dog, I say go for it.
