Whatever kind of dog we decide will be spoiled and considered a 4-legged child. I just had no idea the Bernese life span was 7-8 years.
Just not sure it that's worth the investment and if we decide to pursue that route we will finance and plan accordingly.
You won't necessarily get 7-8 years out of anything. If you love and care for the animal, whatever you get is worth the investment. JMO.
