Not!  Sounds like a dog that craves attention - or a puppy.  If you want a
dog, get a dog, not a puppy, and if you want a puppy, be warned that they
require babysitting just like any other kind of child :-)  I learned my
lesson long ago and last time got a dog (pitbull 3yrs old) from the
pound.  Fantastic dog, great and patient with kids and doesn't chew up my
house.  The only prob she has is she doesn't like to be confined in a
small room or area, and hates thunderstorms.  I can afford to have an
animal chewing on my computer equipment that I can t afford in the first
place :-)
