Another update for today... I just wanted to inform you, America, that I decided not to get Nadine. Thank you for your name suggestions though. I am still going to keep my eye out for other dogs at various shelters. Or maybe I will get a poodle, although getting one from a breeder is $500-$1,000 I'm finding. I just have trouble justifying that, especially for a dog that I'm not even "saving." I am all about saving dogs, so we'll see. It wouldn't even have to be a poodle--just something small and cute.
