    so, i've been bugging my hubby for a cat for a few months now (i love pets) ... he said, "NO!!! ... i dont want them chewing all on the cords and stuff!!" :(

    so today i went for a hair consultation ... on the way, i passed by a pet shop ... i went in to take a peek, he can stop me from bringing one home, but he cant stop me from dreaming a little :p

    ... so there's the cutest little puppy Terrier in the cage, the only dog there ... i was smitten :goodvibe: ... i played with him for at least 20 mins or so ... i wish i could have brought him home :cry:

    when i got home, i told my hubby about my little pup :D ... he says, "well, how much is he?" .... i said, "$850." :blulsh2: ... he goes, " :shock: " .... :lol:

    well, the short of the story is, IM GONNA GET A DOGGIE!!! :D ... im so happy, i feel like its Christmas already :D

    Don't want to put you off getting a pet Dew but don't get a dog or cat from a pet shop.
    Check into puppy mills, it might turn you off.
    Unless a shop is fronting some legitimate breeder they all get them from puppy mills though they all claim they don't.
    If you want a dog or cat get one from the pound and do the animal, yourself and the world a favor.

    Are you really serious that you spend $300 on a hairdo?
    Of course, I spend that on a haircut but most of it is to cover the anesthetic.

    well, it doesnt normally cost that much, but im getting some hair extentions (hair fusion) ... where they will add human hair to the top with wax/glue, strand by strand to add more fullness and a little more lenght to the top and front ... kinda like these examples ... i really like that Sharon Stone cut ... the after photo is computer generated with a hair styling site http://www.thehairstyler.com

    i was actually thinking the same thing. :?

    i would suggest going to the humane society. i looked on google and you guys have one at...

    306 East 59th Street
    New York, NY 10022

    :) the humane society here always has the cutest, friendliest little dogs. mostly mutts, but i've found mutts to be the best ones anyway. :p i got my dog at the humane society about 17 years ago and he's still the greatest dog ever (not to mention very oooooold :wink:). :D it doesn't appear that the location nearest you has a run-down of their prices on their website, but it won't be anywhere near as much as the pet shop. i don't know if it will be exactly the same or not, but here's what is costs where i live.

    i love shopping for pets cause at times it's almost more like they're shopping for YOU, you know? so much fun!

    well, he didnt exactly know how much it would cost :lol: ... so today i came home after my consultation ... i said, "can i have some money?" ... he said, "how much u need?" ... i hesitated and said under my breath, "$300." .... he went, :shock: .... and then the pup thing ... guess he feels overwhelmed :lol: ... thats what he gets for marrying a high maintenace woman :p

    ... nah, but seriously ... what am i to do ... let myself go? :roll: ... i know im an old bag and all, but i still have a lot of life left :lol: ... and i want to keep his head turning too :wink:

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    No, but you could let your hair grow :lol:
    Honestly do you really want someone else’s hair on your head? :?

    I'm with the others on checking out the humane society for a puppy. I'm not a fan of pet stores myself. You never can tell where the animals come from. Besides I bet there are a lot of lonely puppies at the humane society that need rescuing. They are also a lot cheaper.
