Growing up, I always wanted to have a dog, but my parents said no because they can be high maintenance, costly, shed, and track dirt into the house. I gave up on wanting a dog or any pets because I soon learned that my parents are correct. Now that I am in my twenties, I have learned that many many people love pets, especially dogs and cats. My previous girlfriend loved cats. Now that I am single, I hope to find a girl who isn't so into pets, but just searching around the net and in my experience, that person is rare. What do you think of my reasoning for not liking pets? Are any of you like this as well?
