Go down to your local Humane Association. Adopt the most neurotic puppy in the lot. Allow her to jump on the bed because she’s so cute and she only weighs 10 pounds or so. Spoil her rotten year after year. Insert summer thunderstorm. Share your bed with a 40-pound dog all night.
Edited to add: I just read this heartbreaking post about the Davidson County Animal Shelter here in Nashville. Please consider adopting a pet from their facility this summer. They are in dire straits.
