Sarah always wanted a dog. Growing up she begged for one constantly. I was in on it for awhile but as I got older I was secretly thankful that my mom put her foot down so strongly against it.
After Sarah and Mike got married what was the first thing they bought with their "wedding money"?
Me? A mattress.
You can read about how much she loves her dogs--now plural--here.
Me? I'll try to take my mom's line for as long as possible. Abel really wants a dog, too, so someday I'm sure we'll have one. And, I'm sure I'll love it. But for now life is complicated enough.
