Finding Fifi and Why I Couldn’t Keep Her #FindingFifi

I have been wanting to have a pet.  My first choice would be a labradoodle dog.  Every time I see a cute dog, it melts my heart.  Unfortunately, the plan of getting a pet dog has to be put on hold for the time being.  My husband and I sometimes travel abroad for extended periods of time and it would be difficult and expensive to have someone take care of a dog for us during those travels away from home.
