Here’s the thing, my dog is my life (in part), but dogs aren’t my life, I don’t think. When I’m with my dog obviously I’m biased towards feeling like I want to just walk with him forever, but there’s a part of me that knows I will always be traveling and studying different animals, ecosystems, what have you. I don’t like the idea of settling down. In this case, it would be unfair (to the dog) to have a dog, right?
I mean, if I ever had to stay in one place for a long time I’d need a canine companion, but I don’t ever want to stay in one place for a long time.
In an ideal/dream world I’d have a big house a fair distance away from the city and some person totally dedicated to taking care of the animals while I travel the world. Wishful thinking, mayhaps?
I mean, I hope I’ll be too busy to have a dog in the far future, but I also do want to make room in my life for them…. am I making any sense?
