Puppy Love

I mentioned before that although we are not interested in having children right now, we do want puppies.  Like really want puppies.  Like sometimes it is all that we can think about.  It can get pretty intense and obsessive.

Part of the problem is that when we came out to Columbia we planned on getting a dog right away.  We even chose an apartment that would allow pets.  However, since I didn't have a job right away and we were saving all our extra money toward the wedding, the dog didn't happen.  After we wedding we thought about it and realized that we would only be in this apartment one more year regardless of if we stayed in Columbia or not.  As you can see from the apartment tour, we don't have a lot of space and really would like a nicer place after the hubby graduates.  So we thought it wouldn't be a very wise decision to invest in the pet deposit if we would be leaving soon.

At this point we have been talking about getting a dog for over two years, and have put it off for many reasons.  Right now I think we are sick of putting it off.  We are waiting until we find out the hubby's job situation, in case we have to move, before we get a pet, which is killing us.  But it doesn't stop us from looking ....

Our ideal dog - small, white, and furry.  We just can't resist those little terriers like Westies, Yorkies, or Malteses.

And I like my dogs in glasses.
A typical day in the life as a Pickel usually involves multiple messages including pictures and videos like this:

And even sometimes a little piglet or a penguin

If that isn't enough cuteness for you check out this website: Cute Roulette.  I could spend all day on there.

Yes, it might be obsessive at times, but I don't know how much longer we can wait!
