Having dogs in New York City can be wonderful if.... *They aren't too large *You don't leave them alone all day *You live near Central Park or Riverside Park *You let them run in a doggy park *Your dogs clean the food from the floor that your children or grandchildren drop *Your dogs only play with their own toys *You clean up after them - It's the law Having dogs in New York City can be very, very bad if... *Your dogs get banned from doggy day care for fighting over doggy toys *Your dogs bark and cry when you leave them alone *You must hire dog walkers when you visit someone with a cat named Doodles *Your dogs beat you into the elevator and sit on people's feet *Your dogs are overly protective of their young masters *Your dogs can only run in the doggy park if no other dogs are there Pictured is my granddaughter walking one of her two somewhat very well behaved doggies.

No matter what state you live in. You should clean up after your dog.

If only i could get my now 15-year old son to understand the whole "cleaning up after them" part of dog ownership.... he's notoriously bad about it.... he's the one who often walks our LARGE dog because he's the only one (of the kids) who are really strong enough....

All the same applies if you live in Milan, but my niece did not listed and she bought a golden retriever.

@DianneN Yes Winnie is a large hairy dog that cries when she is not at home. She is lucky that her mother lives in the same apartment complex, only two floors down.

@LadyDuck Yikes! It is good that her mother lives two floors down. I'm sure she is a big help.

@DianneN doggie day care.If your dog bark,whine,cry and out they go and not come back. people leash their dogs and leave them alone most of the days. Not as harsh as theirs.But we do have laws.even barking all night.etc.

Yup cleaning up after your dog is essential. Nothing worse than stepping in it. What a cutie pie, love your pic.

Yes having a Dog can be great but its usually me that ends up walking him. I have seen the problems in the City too we had a few of those there. He is always on a leash and kept away from Cars and Houses. He is pretty good really but don´t tell him I said so.

Sultan our dog a bit impulsive
@DianneN Yes I am not sure whether its too big to put on here though. He won´t get a big head only when I tell him he´s a good boy.

I like it! Great summary of the ups and downs in owning and caring for a dog. Great pic, by the way, both kid and dog. Don't forget the emotional comfort of having a dog!

The doggies are easy peasy. Feed them both, walk them both. They play with each other. What could be better than that? I think they're less trouble than one Doodles!

Most of those apply to having dogs pretty much anywhere. Right now we are a cat dominated household...and that creates it's own problems (as Doodles has clearly taught you!).

We've always had more cats than dogs at the same time when the kids were growing up. The kids were raised with a pooper scooper! Since my husband's surgery, I've had to take over cleaning Doodle's box twice a day. Not a pleasant task! Lol!

It seems complicated for those in large areas. It is nice that your granddaughter can have dogs. Most children really do seem to benefit from having a pet or two!
