Ugh, you have no idea how much I want a dog. I love dogs, they're so awesome. When I was angry yesterday for losing my ipod, it just took a five second interaction with a german shepherd puppy to change my mood for the better! The problem is that, one, I can't have a dog while I live with my parents. They don't want one and there's no way I can change their minds. Two, I'm moving out in half a year for college, I won't be able to afford one and it's really hard to find a rental that allows pets. Three, the breed that I want is a Siberian Husky. One of the most high energy, high maintenance dogs out there. I'm not active and I'd be a first time owner, and on top of that I plan to be an animator, a career that has a LOT of work hours. But I want one so bad, SOO Bad. I've researched them like heck, I know everything about them, seriously. I'm gonna go cry in a corner now.
