Why on earth would I want a dog?
I am not sure why I decided to look at dogs the other night... I think I scared my husband and was on the verge of making a HUGE mistake...At least, at this point in our lives. Now, I have had this fascination for weimaraner dogs since I was in college in Bloomington. This stems back almost ten years. I think that they are a beautiful breed and would be great pets...At least I thought they would.
I was so interested, I even called a rescue in Michigan for information on adoption. The woman I talked to was really helpful. I even have the application on my computer partially filled out. Keep in mind, this was even after she told me that a weimaraner would do an entire couch in within 20 minutes... I didn't even blink!
Then, I realized what an idiot I was. What in the world was I thinking? Like I need a dog right now! (Plus, I would kill it if it ate my couch right now!) I began to think about it more and realized that if I wanted a dog, maybe it was time for another child. While the two are completely different, they fill a mothers need to nurture and love. Not to mention, I would much rather have a baby than a dog!
Whew! It was a close one. I can't say that I won't completely stop loving the weimaraner dogs though. I still would like one some day. Who knows, maybe when my couches are older!
