Puppy Withdrawal

So it's been a real long time since my last post. I guess not that much is going on since school causes me to be away from Quasia. I did try to get in contact with a region that is closer to my school about helping out, but they reasoned that I was too far away to help without actually raising a puppy. It's been since the summer since I've been involved with anything GEB related I guess (besides my winter break trip to NY).

Anyways, right now I really really want a puppy. I keep on hearing about new puppies added to our region and I've seen the pictures and I want to be able to raise again. I'm going to be home for five months this summer and I'm going to try to beg my parents to allow me to raise or at least puppy sit. I live with my grandparents and my grandma has asthma and she's claimed to have had problems when I've puppysat other dogs. It only seems to happen when she sees the dog though - my room's in the basement and I've had a puppy stay for a weekend before and she never had a problem. Plus, a pup probably won't shed as much as a grown dog. And my grandma and Quasia are getting along much better now and she hasn't really complained about her recently.

I guess I'm just realizing that school is almost over (last exam May 1st!) and I'd love to be able to raise again. I do need a job and to make money during the summer because I'll be studying abroad in the fall, so I don't really know how feasible raising a puppy would be. I guess sitting might work, but I want to be able to have a pup to myself, at least for the five months I'll be home. Anyways, those are just my thoughts for now - I should be concentrating on final exams, final papers, getting transfer credits, and finding someone to sublease my townhome, so I can't even really bring up the topic with my parents for now. I feel bad for even saying a thing because I know I should be concentrating on that and getting a job.

I'll be studying in England at the University of Reading. They actually have a bunch of animal related courses and my favorite, a dogs and cats class.
