If anyone is thinking of getting me a bicycle or some snowboarding gloves for Christmas, just forget it. All I want is a dog. I would prefer a puppy so we could bond as it develops from boy to man but even a beautiful dog will do. I keep meeting these beautiful animals around town and almost crying because I can't take them home! There is this golden retriever roaming around my cul-de-sac that I love. I have been out looking for it a couple of times but have only seen it once. It's a beauty! Please get me one. Pleeeease.
