A Puppy for your Thoughts?

The Mountaintop School for Dogs and Other Second Chances by Ellen Cooney

To be honest, I am not much of an animal lover. I've never had any pets (aside from the occasional goldfish I killed during childhood). I especially don't like cats - I'm allergic to them and frankly, they scare me to death with their silent approaches and sudden leaps onto my lap. But dogs, yeah, I get people having dogs, although I doubt I'll ever have one myself. With their shedding and funny smelling food, and cleaning up after them and taking them to the vet, I just don't think I have the patience or the energy to take care of one properly. That would certainly make me a very bad dog owner. Come to think of it, it might actually be practically criminal to leave a dog in my care.
