Let's Talk: I Want a Dog

 My family and close friends are probably so sick of hearing about how I want a dog, so I'm sorry for those that have to hear it again, but seriously I want a dog! These pictures are from last summer with my family's dog Molly, she is a Jack Russell Terrier and OBSESSED with toys, more than any other dog I have ever been around. I seriously think she would choose her favorite ball over food any day.

I think one of the hard things about navigating through your twenties is when you hit that spot when you feel you are ready to have a dog. You know the responsibilities involved and are willing to make that commitment to keeping another being (besides for you) alive and well. When this hits, it's exciting and if you are like me you instantly start watching Animal Planet's Dogs 101 (if you haven't watched this, it is a must for anyone wanting to learn more about different breeds), scouring through the Humane Society website for adoptable dogs near you, and even visiting local shelters to "just see what they have'. Unfortunately though reality sets in and you realize, wait I go out of town for work too much and can't take the dog with me or what will it do while I'm at work all day, or the worst; your apartment complex doesn't allow dogs or charges a crazy amount for pet rent each month. This reality has hit me but I am convinced to find a way to work through these challenges and get a dog but in the meantime seriously struggling and relating to almost every single one of THESE struggles. At least every time I go home I get to play with this crazy dog that I secretly love:
