THINGS I HAVE TO REMEMBER EVERY TIME I THINK WE SHOULD GET A DOG

I still want one, but...
  1. Our budget is still razor thin, unexpected vets bills would not assist at this time
  2. We still don't sleep through the night with the kids a lot of the time. A dog even crated can keep you up at night for various reasons
  3. The dog hair everywhere. I know you get used to it but...
  4. Walking the pooch in sub zero weather
  5. Backyard is not fenced in at this new house, nor will it ever be, so can't just let the dog out
