    I Have Always Wanted A Dog

    Unfortunately, I Rent...

    My current landlord doesn't mind, but I have to move soon and getting a dog is just not a good idea. So instead I got rats. They're lovely and very sweet, but other people think they're strange and gross. Plus you can't take them out for a walk and meet cute boys.

    Bichon Frise

    When I'm ready to get a dog (meaning when I have an apartment that allows pets), I'm getting a Bichon!! They are absolutely precious, and they have the perfect temperament for my taste. Also they're good for people with allergies.
