Captain Longshot, those are some uber-cute pictures! Your puppy is definitely super cute.
But mine are cuter! All my pictures of them are from when they were puppies, too, though, and not now that they're full grown. They're two miniature salt-n-pepper schnauzers named Coco and Amber. And one of them technically belongs to my brother. Poo.
I can't decide if I'm actually going to be able to handle taking Coco with me. I love her to death, but all my pets have always been "family pets." I waffle between thinking that the pressure of having to take care of her (wake up early to walk her, come home periodically to feed her, let her out, groom her, be sure she gets enough attention) are more than I want to take on when I'm trying to adjust to studying harder than I've ever studied, and thinking that the simple fact that just looking at her makes me smile and cuddling with her makes me so happy and calm will make it all worth it.
I can't decide And I feel like a sell out to the poor puppy for even considering not taking her with me. She loves my mom as much as she loves me, though, and I feel really bad about separating her from her sister (they're litter sisters, they've always been together!). Sooo... keep talking, and help me make up my mind!
I, too, would love a roommate (two bedrooms, please!) who would love my pet as their own. Puppies have more than enough love to go around!
How far up on your list is Fordham?!
My biggest concern is finding someone to live with who would treat my cat as their own and preferably has a pet(s) of their own.
