I wanted a dog. Now I’m not too sure.

091130Mandysdogs I’ve always wanted a dog- a beagle or a golden lab. My friends, Mandy and Ed were going away overnight and needed me to watch their dogs this weekend.  I’d tell you the names but I forgot them as soon as they left.  I had to resort to Dog 1 and Dog 2 but most of the times it was Hey and Psst.

These two dogs are friendly and extremely hyper. And they don’t have much sense of personal space but then I was warned of this by the owners.  And while it was adorable in the beginning, by the end of it, I was ready to hand them back.  I’m still willing to sit for them.  The dogs are pretty fun but I don’t think I could handle them day in and day out.  It made me realize that if I was to get a dog, my schedule is going to have to make an accommodation for.  Since I love how flexible I can be since I only have to care for myself, I’m not sure I want to give that up just now.

Hmmm, when I’m a little older, I’m going to have see about test-driving a kid.

You're going to be back in Niles sometime in late December right? You should drop by my house real quick. I'll have something to show you.
