Initially my "want it" thing was going to be a job at the hospital -- but since God provided that so amazingly and I will be starting in July -- I had to think of something else! An amazing predicament to have!
So since I'll be living in an apartment when I get back and have been wanting one since the beginning of time -- my "want it" is a dog!!
Needless to say, I am pretty unbiased when it comes to what type. I don't want anything super large because I want to be able to pick it up when need be, nothing too long-haired so it's not shedding all the livelong day, sweet to everyone and good natured, and active but not too active (because I'm not that athletic and active haha). I know I plan on getting one from the pound or rescue shelter, if its not from a family or friend because the cost is cheaper, its saving their life, and you can get it spayed/neutered right there.
This is what I have it down to:
Pitbull --now I know all the negative connotations, but they are the nicest and sweetest dogs in the world. My uncle's dog has some mixes every couple of times a year and they are the most wonderful dogs ever, I may get one from him.
Any suggestions on which to get? or a better idea for a breed?
(I had always wanted a Huskie, but it gets soooo dang hot in NC that it'd be torture for them! :(
