I guess if your skis are still going strong, go with the dog. Our house would be pretty quiet without our dog, and I think its nice to have. Yet, if you need new skis, get them. Its hard for me to tell you, because im not in your situation. All I know is if my skis were fine for another season, I would get the puppy.
Any time you "need help with a decision," just get out your magic 8 ball. Seriously though, no one can (or should) help you with that decision based on the facts you gave (or lack thereof). Are you planning on going away to college in the next few years and then forgetting about the dog? Basically, what's your 10 year plan? Does it involve being at a steady home, with enough free time to devote to a dog? Skis are great, as you can always put them in a corner and forget about them, or sell them. Nothing you do to them can hurt their feelings.
If anyone ever told you that I give a damn, they damned well told you wrong!
The other day I was eating Starbursts and watching TV, and then a Starburst commercial came on. I was like, damn, that's profound.
Honestly I just bought a dog today, and I'd still say you should go with skis... haha. This puppy is gonna be so much work and already costin me hundreds. Hes a gift for my girlfriend though so I'm glad hes not my responsibility after monday..haha nah but hes dope, Id say hes worth it, especially since i already got skis.
skis get thrashed and beaten on and will eventilly be thrown away. a dog is your best friend who you will never get in a fight with, get the dog
