I've got doggy fever.

Wednesday, October 24, 2012 § 0

No, this is not some new disease that I invented/am plagued with.  Actually, this just means that I'd really like a dog and I've been obsessed with the idea lately.

Now, don't fret- I realize that I'm most likely not prepared for single dog ownership yet and besides, my apartment complex doesn't allow dogs anyway.  However, the idea is super-enticing.  I've helped raise dogs my whole life, but I'd need to think about the economic toll a dog would take on me, along with other things.

BUT STILL,  I'd love someone to walk through campus every day and take to the Oval and take with me to my parent's house to run around in the backyard and take up to Horsetooth to hike with me and basically just love.  Maybe this means that I'm more obsessed with the idea of a dog than what it would take to actually care for one, but I know that if I ever did become a single dog owner (and I keep saying that because my family already has two dogs, but I hardly see 'em since I live two hours away) that I would be an incredible caring owner.  I would freaking SPOIL that dog.

Plus, overcrowding in shelters is a huge deal, and so many dogs are being put down every year.  If I did get a dog, I'd get a shelter pup- that's the way to go.  No pet shops!!!

Anyway, this is just an idea for now.  I've heard a lot of bad experiences of young dog ownership from a lot of people so I'm just going to keep the idea in my mind for a while.

P.S...I totally took a quiz online on what breed would best match my personality and this is what came up:
Great dane (which I would LOVE but I don't know if I could handle a dog this big...)

Black russian terrier

Boxer

Bullmastiff (but sort of the same issue as with the GD...these mothers get enormous)

Doberman Pinscher

So all in all, lots to think about.  For now I'll just have to deal with my crazy case of doggy fever.
