a pet of my very own
i'm trying to convince jon that we need a dog. technically he is allergic to animal hair but says a dog would be better than cat hair. which is too bad because i love cats and really miss having one around. my cat was my best buddy, but he snored so i would kick him out of bed and he would get grumpy. i also like the idea of a hedgehog, but i can't imagine them being much fun to play with and cuddle.
i would love to rescue a dog from the shelter, or else my first choice would be a whippet! they're so adorable and meek looking but i bet they're mischievous-they have that look about them. i've read that obviously they like to run, but at home they're couch potatoes, which is perfect. i'm home all day working and need company! i've already decided on a name. santos. little santos. it has a simpsons reference but i won't get into it for those who don't know.
i'm working on it, but i have a feeling all i will end up with is a goldfish at best.
