So we are thinking about getting a dog. I would love to get one so Curt will feel more comfortable to go hiking and camping. But I think there is a lot of negatives about having a dog. Up here where you can't keep him outside all day because of the weather. And than you have the smell of a dog in the house. But we are thinking about this dog named Utah. ( Crazy that his name is Utah) He is a great dog. He was good with the kids and is totally potty trained. Oh, and Aubrey loves him to death. But we are still thinking about it.
