i want a dog SO BAD. our landlords have decreed that for now our house shall remain dogless as their other property apparently got eaten from the inside out by a giant dog. that sucks, but MY small tiny adopted at a later age so it's trained and has manners would NEVER do that. they said maybe in the future so i plan on asking every 6 months until they so tire of me annoying them that they just will sigh in unison and say "Fiiiiinnnnnnneeeee". Until then i will pine away for my stanely. or my 'stache. or whatever breaks my heart in the shelter and comes home with me (as long as i can hold it on my lap and watch tv while it looks lovely at ashley and dreams of running on the beach with him).
