Once AgainAbout one and a half years ago I was seized with an intense desire to own a dog. A Blenhiem King Charles Cavalier Spaniel to be precise. But when I talked to my parents they were a brick wall. They said no.
Dogs are dirty, you don't have time, you don't really want a dog, you're a student not a dog carer etc.
In retrospect they were wise - there was no way I could have taken care of a dog properly over this past one and a half years. However, as a new chapter of my life approaches, I believe I can take care of a dog should I choose to get one next year.
Seriously considering getting one in December. I'm just not sure if it's the right thing to do.
