My Husband's one wish in our 18 years of marriage has been a dog...
Seriously. And despite my being a stick in the mud for 18 years, he has remained married to me.
I do not want to wash one, pick up poop....I have no idea where I would find the time for a dog. I barely have time to raise feral children. I suppose, it would ensure a walk daily.
However, I am losing the vote for a dog in the house. So my guess is, it will happen some time in the next year.
The Husband wants a gun dog. PN a poodle, SR wants a Turkish van cat, because he thinks a swimming cat would be the shiz. (Only my son would want a swimming cat)
I wanted an Italian Spinone, since I cannot steal Charlie.
I just do not EVER want to find dog poop in my house. I do not want a dog to spill water on my computer.
I do not want a digger, or an escape artist. I never want to chase after a dog. No thanks.
I was an accidental pet owner as a child. I was the child that brought home a 3 legged dog, and a tailess cat, a frog that had a hook in him. I was that kid....
