We miss you too Ari. POST HERE MORE!
Yep, it's Gameguard mainly keeping us off.
Well, cleaned up some papers and stuff that was lying around and finished rewriting chem assignment to make it look more neat. Going to start making flash cards for bio cause the test is coming up in less than two weeks.
Time for a long ramble: Recently the opportunity to get a dog or cat came up (probably won't happen for a few years though), so I figured, ought to make a list of basic questions and do some research.
If it were to happen, leaning more toward a dog than a cat, man's best friend, affection, all that. Would be more likely to get one from a shelter instead of a pet store, and maybe one that's a bit older than a puppy. Thinking a medium sized one, nothing too big but not like a chihuahua (sounds like Goldilocks and the Three Bears) but no particular preference on breed (/brace for an influx of pug pics). Female or male doesn't matter either.
Guess the main concerns are:
1) Costs associated with raising a dog per year (food/necessities, spaying/neutering, any illnesses/diseases he/she might pick up, grooming, veterinary visits)-> Need to do more research in this area, later after school's done
2) # of times they should go on walks per day (Heard it's 3-5) and distance
3) Is it still called a litter box if it is a dog? Do dogs even use litter boxes or is all the business done outside? Reminded of a Dragon's Den episode where some woman brought in diapers for dogs.
4) Leaving him/her alone during the day all by his/her lonesome, no one to play with (always reminded of the Flintstones show with Dino but obviously, that's a cartoon on tv)
5) Being responsible enough to own one? ~.~
Think those are the main concerns for now about dogs, though for sure some will come up later.
Yep, so dog vs. cat. Thoughts?
