I have a very active lab (see avatar), who likes allot of attention to. All I have to do is take her on a long walk in the morning, and she will leave me alone while I read. If you have a fenced in yard, it is even easier. The point being, there is always a way to keep your dog, and go to law school. School is a major part of your life, but don't let it take over your life. Keep the dog, it will save your sanity later.
