Dogs, actually. They're fun, energetic, versatile, and with the more outdoorsy breeds, durable enough for camping and hikes. Don't get me wrong, I would LOVE a dog, and have daydreamed for years about the kinds I want, but right now, I don't have a dog of my own. When I began apartment living on my own, I chose a cat for my companionship needs, because I had done some research and heard that they're less of a hassle for apartment-dwellers to own and find new apartments with than dogs (despite the fact that in some areas, landlords have ridiculous declawing rules). With a dog, you might need a yard, and there is a lot of breedism on the part of landlords, despite the fact that some of the better apartment dogs are also the bigger and more feared kinds.

I like cats, too. They've turned out to be very affectionate, in my experience. My cat has turned out to be a valuable companion. But I still think about getting a dog when things are more financially stable or we have a bigger place. Types I would consider: mixed breed, pit bull (I refuse to give into breedism!), Portuguese water dog, Australian cattle dog, German shepherd.
