685 words - 3 pages

Congratulations! You have finally decided to share your life, time, and money with a new dog. Having owned (or been owned by) several dogs in the past, I feel qualified to help advise you on the characteristics inherent in two of the most popular breeds, the Golden Retriever and the Chihuahua. All dogs require companionship and interaction, food, water, and exercise. These two dogs are popular breeds for many reasons and both have their good and bad points. Taking into consideration each animal's physical characteristics, behavior, and personality will help in making the decision of which one is for you.First, let us discuss physical characteristics.

Nonetheless, older people and people with children may feel more confident of not being accidentally knocked over by a small dog.Secondly, let's look at the differences in doggy behavior. The Golden's bounding, enthusiastic welcome home is enough to knock over most adults. They are usually friendly dogs with a cheerful, tail-wagging nature. Generally considered quite athletic, Golden's are active dogs that require lots of room to run and vigorous exercise. They are definitely not suited to the small apartment life. They tend to bark a lot, but most barking is happy and...
