Some day we will have a dog. With four kids, 3 cats and many insects its hard for me to throw a dog into that mix. I tell the kids when we get a respectable yard we can have a dog. We have adopted all our cats. Please if you want a dog go to the shelter or call a rescue group. There is so many animals out there that need a good loving home. They will give you so much love that you will be drawing hearts all day.
