Wife and kids are campaigning for a dog, one kid is allergic and reacts badly to oily breeds like labs which is what we had before kids, I am the lone opposition to a dog. I think we are gone too much(swim lessons, Daisies etc.) to be fair to a dog and it would be all my responsibility since I work closest to home and get home earliest. I had suggested bunnies as something lower maintenance where the other members of the family could prove they would contribute to care, but it was shot down because they want something indoors. I think the real reason it was shot down is because my wife knows I will endup being caretaker and that just strengthens my position against a dog.
Sooo, what kind are you gonna get ? .
