So child psychology has gotten to me. I want to be a dad. I really do. I want to raise a child and create a good human being.
Of course. I'm not stupid. I'm not ready for a child, but I feel that at my age, this is the best and closest thing to it.
I've decided that I want to get an Australian Shepherd with my own money. I want to pay for it, and everything. I had a huge speech planned out to give to my mother, but she said she doesn't mind as long as she's not the one taking care of it.
I don't want her to be the one taking care of it. I want to be the one bonding with it. I want to take it to the park, play frisbee with it, introduce it to people of all shapes, colors, sizes and ages. I want to feed it, bathe it, walk it, care for it, and raise it.
I think that this would be a good way to nurture my nurturant personality.
I'm not sure as to wether I want a male or a female, but I know that I want a puppy who is as young as you can possibly get one. And I want an Australian Shepherd. They're good with kids, adults, strangers, and because they're herding dogs, when you call them, they come to you. I want a dog that I can walk down the street without having to keep a leash on him.
So. I'm not sure about boy vs. girl, but I'm going to go out, get a crate, a bed, bowls and brushes, and then go and get a dog from a breeder, and I thing I'm going to post pictures when I get him. I've got my mind set. I'm going through with this and I think it's a good decision
