Meet Angel

I cannot believe what Sunny did! I just can't! I was totally not suspecting to get a dog when we went to the pet store this morning to get some fish food, I wasn't even suspecting we'd look at the dogs! But Sunny said I could look and something absolutely, positively amazing happened- she said I could pick a dog, any dog at the pet store!
I nearly died. 
Like I said in previous posts, my friend/roommate is allergic to dogs and cats and basically anything with fur so this was a total surprise. Sunny said that the dog had to sleep outside at night because that's practically the only time we're all in our dorm together. I agreed. Of course I wanted a puppy but my friends definitely come first! 
I looked at every dog. Every single one. This was probably the only dog I'd ever have so I wanted to pick the right one! All the dogs were cute, though so this made it extra hard to choose :-(
Then, in the second-to-last cage, was a medium-sized brown and white basset hound. I guess you could say it was love at first sight!
"Is this the one you really want, Cali?" Sunny asked. "She really isn't all that playful."
It was true. The basset hound was mellow and quiet while the other dogs seemed rambunctious and were barking nonstop. But I didn't care! This dog was the dog for me!
"Yes!" I said, grinning.
Sunny just smiled and paid for the dog. And then it was official- I owned my very own dog!
As we drove away with the cute basset hound and some fish food, I couldn't help but wonder what to name the dog. After a lot of ideas, I finally came up with Angel! I think the name fit her perfectly.

Here's a picture of Angel and me sitting on my favorite red chair:

I am just so happy! I can't wait to tell my friends. They'd love to see Angel...even Noelle! :-)
I got to go! Bye!
