I want a dog…

“Let’s get a dog”

“We don’t have dog time or dog money.”

“I know but I still want a dog”

This is a conversation Robert and I have on a daily bases, and no I am not exaggerating, literally every day.

It’s funny, growing up I never wanted a dog. I had no interest. My parents really don’t like animals and the largest pet we ever had was a hamster. It bit me and my mom gave it to my second grade class. That’s it. That’s all I got.

But then came Ziggy Goldberg. Robert’s family Shitzu and everything changed. Now, I find myself looking up “Philly Puppy Adoptions” for hours on end, I search “Why entrepreneurs should have dogs” and send the articles to Robert as much as possible. Most importantly I find myself madly in love with an 8 week old Bulldog named Wilbur.

“Robert, I found our dog!” I said as soon as he picked up the phone “He’s only three hours away!” Robert laughed. “$3,000 isn’t too much right?” He laughed again. I sighed, maybe Wilbur isn’t meant to be, but one day, Robert and I will have a dog and I sincerely cannot wait!

I am officially a dog person to the Nth degree and truthfully, I wouldn’t have it any other way. Now that I think of it, when I was younger I always wanted to be a dog person and now, I really am.

The only thing left to do is convince Robert it’s time…. Who can help?!
