Are you planning on having a baby? Another one or the first? How about a dog? Do you know a dog is like a baby? They are needy and demand a lot of attention. Nothing wrong with that if you are up to the task.
Dogs are like kids, some people adore kids and some would rather keep their distant. Some go against their better judgement and give birth, only to abuse and sometimes kill the child! Same thing as a dog. Read the stories of people with dogs in less than comfortable conditions. It’s usually a good idea at the time.
So thing before you commit. Do you want a kid? Do you want a dog? You could love kids and hate dogs or love dogs or hate kids or love them both or hate them both. Don’t listen to anyone, it’s your life, your call. Don’t be forced.
