I think I'd want to get a dog...
At least, when I leave for college. I don't think my parents would let me. My mom is sensitive with animals, and she's allergic to dogs. (Ironic since my dad used to own a dog before I was born) My dad is thinking the same thing, though. My dad and I don't usually see eye to eye, but MAYBE if I were to bring up the topic of a dog, he'd give me some positive feedback. I'm kind of similar to my dad in a way...
So when I leave my parents for campus, I could have my own dog. I understand the whole "responsibility" thing. Feed the dog, pick up the poop, and yadda yadda. I don't think I'll see it as much as a problem, except the poop part. If I were to get a dog, I'd also want to get an extended metal claw... and plenty of napkins. I know I could just house train my dog or have the dog poop outside... but I'd also like my dog to have some freedom... at least some form of treatment to show that I don't want to make his or her life a living hell.
It'd be nice to have a dog, especially one that won't bark at me. (If the dog does bite the hand that feeds him or her, I'm just going to have somebody else own him. I'm not going to put the animal down; that'd be sickening)
I'm thinking of an akita... since my dad owned one, and my fursona is an akita. My Cross Country coach said that if I were to get a dog, I should get a herder. (obviously matching my wild personality and my love for running) I'd also like an Australian Shepherd, like my old coach's dog. That dog was the nicest and friendliest I have ever met, and I'm gracious for that.
So it's either an akita, a herder, or an Australian Shepherd. Now if I were to name my dog...
How about Jenny (after my coyote OC) or Ken (after my hyena OC)?
