dog days

A lot of people are dog people.  I never thought I was one of them.  Not wanting to disappoint the dog lovers out there, I have always pretended to think dogs are great.  But really, they made me wince.  They kind of smell, they jump up on you, and they bark...sometimes a lot.  These are all things you can't really say to the doting dog-owner.  But, a few days ago, when I came back to Kansas City after spending a week in Maine, Joey (Dan's dog) was sooooooo excited to see me.  And her unbridled enthusiasm awakened some enthusiasm in me.  And now, for the first time ever, I can genuinely say, I want a dog.  Maybe not right away (okay, definitely not right away), but someday.  Yes.  Someday.  Plus, these guys are pretty cute:

Of course, now that Dan and I are dog-sitting for both Joey and Bernie (his sister and brother-in-law's dog), I am realizing just how much work dogs are. Still, someday.  Now the question isn't "if," but "which kind?"
