Adopt a Dog
Part of my 100 Things Challenge:
I love dogs and cats -- I grew up with a Great Dane named Caesar and there was always a cat in the house -- but my apartment is not great for a cat since there isn't a good place for a litter box here. Also, I really would love to have a dog; I'm very interested in whippets (see pohto above). I've got a saved search setup at Petango and check the Toronto Human Society's page for adoptable dogs regularly.
However, since I'm heading to North Carolina for 10 days in February (9-19), I won't be ready to adopt a dog prior to my return from that trip.
