I don't personally own a dog. I don't have the time, but I have the best of both worlds because my roommates have dogs. There are three that live at my house; Lucky, Watson, and Rodney (the three in the middle of the group shot). I came home last week to five dogs because Nicki was babysitting Birdie and Norma. While I can't ever imagine owning five dogs, it was pretty entertaining and fun while it lasted.
