Actually Timmy is dreaming, wishing and hoping for a dog. I haven't had a dog in over thirty years since I was younger. The only pet he's ever had are beta fish. He's 10 ½ now and can't stop thinking about it. He's been watching the shows on Animal planet researching the kind of dog we should get (IF WE GET ONE!). He's been on line looking for the best dog for us.
He's even started a journal writing about his wishes. Two days ago he wrote on his on blog about wanting a dog. He's considering a beagle. I told him IF we were to get one we would have to wait until the summer because we will be home then and it wouldn't be fair to bring a puppy into the house when we would both be at school all day.
Do any of you dog lovers have any pointers for this poor conflicted mother?
