    Now, are all dogs the best pets? Yes. In my opinion, a human's personality can be matched to one of the hundreds of breeds of dogs that are out there.

    Best Hypoallergenic Large Dogs

    Perhaps one of the most upsetting things about having allergies is the lifestyle choices that they limit. If you're allergic to gluten, you can't eat pizza. If you are allergic to dogs, you can't have your own furry friend at home...or can you?

    Life with a Dachshund​

    Life with a Dachshund​

    Yes, the Dachshund, a dog that is famous for its long narrow body. One of the smallest dog breeds in the world. And I say one of the neediest. I mean most dogs try to follow its owner into the bathroom, but this one makes a mission out of it. With clawing, scratching, and whining, my god, this dog is determined, I would even say passionate in trying to invade your privacy. You're doing your business when suddenly this dog comes in and wants attention. This dog wants to be smothered and will yelp and cry until it gets what it wants, don't cave into their cute eyes, don't do it. You're only playing into their games. They love it.
