Last night, the JA and I had the brilliant idea that we are in need of a pet. A dog, to be exact. He’s always wanted one, I’ve never had a pet other than a few fish and my sister’s guinea pigs.
In fact, he’s already picked names for the two we will have – Watson and Crick. He wants Watson to be a smaller dog and Crick to be a LABrador. Yes, he likes it because it’s got the word lab in it. If you’re up to snuff with your science knowledge, you’ll also have realized that Watson and Crick are the two men who discovered the DNA strand. Geek, much?
We decided that since this will be my first ‘real’ pet, we’re looking for an older rescue dog – something that won’t need much training. The JA realizes that he may not be able to name the dog as he wishes, but we’ll cross that bridge when it comes.
I’m not saying we’ll get one right away due to our schedules in the fall and the impending wedding, but we’re thinking either before the year is out or very early next year we may have added to our family!
Pros and Cons to having a dog? (Seriously. Right now, we need some guidance.) Recommendations in the Baltimore area to adopt a pet?
