Ben and I have wanted a puppy for, well, forever. We go back and forth about when the right time to start this little "family" will be. He is recently set on getting one now. I would looooove to snuggle up to a sweet baby white lab right now...but I also think we might ought to wait until we move into a house. Our condo is like 800 square feet. We have no outdoor space. It's winter. See where I'm going? For tax reasons we can't even begin to think about buying a house until October 2012. And now, we have a wedding to think of budgeting for so I don't know where a house will fall into the mix. Ben also travels a lot, and for extended periods of time for work. I am not traveling for work any longer so I could run home to let the baby out etc.
When did you all get your dog's? Did you have a large place? Is it unfair to the dog to have him cooped up in our tiny condo for at least a year? Of course we would walk him, and Ben would surely take him running and hunting. Any advice doggy mommies??
