I think I say it almost every other day... I would love to have a pet! But that's not gonna happen for at least a couple years, so I'll have to settle for borrowing friends' pets or petting random dogs on the street or visiting shelters. That last one is my favorite. And my favorite shelter is Pets Lifeline in Sonoma. Every time we visit my Nan we have to make a stop :) You can go and sit in a room of kittens, and I know they love the attention. Make a stop on your next trip to the wine country.
