But I totally support your right to not want a dog! I mean, I do everything I can to make sure my dog is as inoffensive as possible. THe only reason I even bother taking him for training is so that you people won't have to be inflicted with his doggish-misbehavior.
Trust me, as a dog owner, I understand what would make you want to not have a dog. Hell, there are days I wish I weren't!
I just wanted to say how proud I am of you guys for making the decision to NOT own a dog. You're so mature!
