I can't have a pet at the moment unfortunately, owing to my lease and financial situation, but I've always found comfort in them. I wish I had a dog, but I suppose that must wait.
Hey, I just had an idea. I don't know if it would be feasible for you (there could be logistical barriers), but could you perhaps volunteer at a local animal shelter? That way you could get to interact with dogs regularly without actually owning one, plus your doing something good... Anyway, just a thought.
I guess what I'm trying to say
Is whose life is it anyway because livin'
Living is the best revenge
You can play
