Picking a puppy is hard enough for one person, so imagine the process for two! When caligirlnyc wrote in about her situation, I decided to toss her question to the crowd:

My boyfriend and I want to get a dog but we're disagreeing on size. I like super cute, dainty varieties and he wants a "real dog" — help!

Sadly, I know he's not alone as I've heard others comment on certain dogs appearing "girly" while others are more "manly" — do you feel the same way and what size or type pooch would be a good compromise?
