Been thinking about getting a dog. I love dogs! I just don't want the little guy/girl to be left alone all day while I am at work. I would also probably get 2 dogs instead of one so they can keep each other company and play. Also more dogs = more fun. I would take them to the beach, take them to the gym, the park and maybe even see if I can get them into my work on weekends.
I would have to put some kind of protective lining on the interior of my car so they don't wreck it though. For food I would probably not feed them that dog food crap, but instead eggs and chicken (when I was a kid my dad would feed our black lab eggs and he had a beautiful coat) since you an get a whole chicken for like $5, vs $40 for food they wont even like/eat.
