Direct quote from my son Nathan, "I never dreamed that growing up without a dog by my side would actually be part of my childhood memories. We can change that, Mom. Let's just stay in Macau and stop all this crazy moving."
There are several animal shelters here, all in need of volunteers to walk dogs and such. I think we'll start there. Let them spend some time taking care of dogs that don't have to come home with us at night. See if this is more than a passing phase (obsession).
This life of ours has a lot of great benefits. Being pet-friendly is not on the list. I'll say again what I said to Nathan, "We'll see."
