Congrats, I know the feeling when you want a dog. For years I wanted one and once I got my own house it was pretty much on my mind even before getting furniture, lol.
But once I was ready I picked up 2 puppies which are like kids in a way. But fiancee says I am not done with kids.........so boids, birds, and dogs and soon children, man I am stressed.
Congrats with Princess.
