I decided I needed a small black dog that would bring some joy into my life.
This is Jasper. He is coming to live with us very soon.
Jasper won't actually be all that small. He is a Portuguese Water Dog, which means he will end up being 55-60 lbs. when he is full-grown.
Which still makes him smaller---not to mention cuter and arguably much more manageable---than a husband... ;-)
