My birthday is coming up is a few weeks - I'm asking for a dog.
I've wanted a dog all my life but could never have one because of my dads allergies followed by a long series of rental properties with "no animal" clauses. So we finally have our own place with enough room for a four-legged furry friend and we were planning on getting one as soon as we moved. But then we thought it might better to have a baby first . . .so we have been waiting . . . and waiting.
So I am done waiting - I want a dog and I want one for my birthday. Its not like I have to wait to conceive one and deliver one - there are thousands out there that need a good home - and I could be a good doggie owner. I've been looking on local rescue websites and I've found some great dogs out there and showing my husband. I don't think he's got the hint yet . . .but I am working on it.
So I am hoping and finger crossing. Maybe I can be a mom in the near future after all. I know it sounds rash because this is the first time I have said something but we've actually been planning it out for a while and its time to make it happen. Yes its a substitution, but its the only one I can think of that will actually act like a substitution.
