I have a 3 1/2 yr old boxer, Ella. She's going to live with my parents for the 3 yrs. I'm in law school. Spending most of my time in class/the library/mentally unavailable, I'll feel extremely guilty that she won't be a high priority in my life. Plus after selling my house, and moving to a small apartment, the 5+ acres that my parents live on will be very appealing to my pooch. I'll still visit her once per week when we have Sunday family dinners. So, if you're going to Pitt, have no family in the area, and you become my friend, there may be homecooked dinners in your future! Haha.
I'll take you up on family dinners and in return my dog Camiel will be happy to share the dog lovin'. Hell, she'll love on you even if you don't want her too! Looking forward to meeting my future law school buds on April 8th!
