My husband and I are ready to take care of a puppy, especially since we are waiting another year or two to have kids. My husband's mother has a standard poodle who we both adore. Also, When my husband leaves for Afghanistan we thought it would be nice for me to have a dog's company. I am very active and love to walk on my own, but find it lonely. I walk my mother-in-law's dog every time I go to visit. We do have grassy areas and trails to play with/walk a dog at the apartment, and plan on getting a house when I graduate from my master's program.
