One thing I learned today:
Do not. I repeat, do NOT go on petfinder.com, or any other pet adoption website before you actually have a place to live. All the applications require silly details like, 'landlord name,' and 'home address.' Pssh.
Who needs a street address when you have a companion?
Yep, I'm looking at you cutie!
See, the following will happen; you will email you family and coworkers multiple links to pet profiles, referring to the dog as "My Dog" in the subject line, or worse, actually typing in the future furry friend's pre-picked name as the subject. OR, worse yet, typing in the NICKNAME you've already lovingly selected for your future dog.
WHHHHHHHHHHHHHY'D I do it. I fell in love
with this sweetie during my afternoon jaunt.
