So one Saturday a few weeks ago, I wandered over to a Petco to see what sort of aquariums they had for sale. What I didn't know was that it was an "Adopt-a-Pet" day, to which one of the local rescue shelters brought adoptable puppies and kittens. Needless to say, I fell hopelessly in love with an adorable pitbull boxer mix. I filled out the application to adopt her, but due to her parentage, the shelter (Animal Rescue New Orleans) was very thorough in making sure I was a suitable owner. Cut to last Friday, when I was finally able to pick my little girl up and take her home. However, the cost to adopt her and buy supplies for have invariably wounded my terrarium fund. So I guess that'll have to wait, but it's just as well; getting plants shipped to New Orleans over the summer is a recipe for death.
