I've Always Wanted A Lab.

I love dogs. I love playing with friends' dogs, petting random dogs at parks or on the street (nothing creepy... "Hi, sir" then start petting his dog and completely ignore him. :P), and I begged my parents for years for a dog, but they always said no. My parents got me a spider plant to care for when I was younger and said that if I could take good care of it, they'd think about a dog. I watered the plant, but that's it, and after a while, it had grown a lot and had all these offspring and got all over the porch. My parents didn't touch it cuz they said it was all mine and they wouldn't help me with it or tell me how to care for it. Its roots got too big, the plant was overgrown, and then I forgot to water it and it died, so that was the end of any talk of me getting a puppy.

I really want a black lab. I love how they look, I think they're the most beautiful animal in the world. But I don't think I could properly care for it. I'm worried I'll unintentionally neglect it and it will starve or get sick or attack someone. And besides that, I can't have one where I live right now. Maybe someday, but for now, I'll just keep dreaming. :(

yeah, I know they'll let me know if I'm not giving them enough attention. Still, it's the "what if?" that scares me :/
