Default Three Questions on dog behaviour

I am thinking of buying a Havanese toy dog for the family, the only trouble
is my wife is disabled and unable to walk a dog and she works part time 4
mornings a week and the kids are at school. My questions are
1) Is 5 hours a day too long to leave a small dog that loves companionship
(We do have 2 cats but I don't know if cats count as companions.
2) If these dogs need companionship so badly how will it get on if we leave
it shut downstairs on its own at night.
3) Will a small dog like this need to go for a walk everyday or will it be
OK to walk it at weekends only.
Note: It will have access to the garden day and night by using the cat flap,
does this count as exercise and will this help to stop it from being lonely
in the day.

Nick
