Awwwwww, so cute JayJones!
I'll put a plug in for having a dog during law school if it is feasible for you. It is wonderful to be excited on my way home that I will get to see my dog and that he will be so excited to see me. It really gives me something to look forward to after spending my day dealing with law school. A lot of stuff about law school is frustrating in its arbitrariness and shallowness, and a dog is a wonderful counter to that because his/her love is pure and unconditional (unlike something like who gets on LR, haha). Dogs are in the moment and never worry about anything, which gives some perspective. I also like the structure that my dog provides because I have to get up pretty early to walk him (he will sleep until 9 or 10 if I cover him with the covers when he wakes up, LOL) and then I take him out mid-day and at night. If you are studying at home, having those regular forced breaks outside are nice to give the day some variety and get you some fresh air before you spend another six hours piecing together the cases following the Erie doctrine or whatever. As I am writing this, my dog is curled up sleeping, leaning against my leg, with his head burrowed in the covers...he makes me so happy
TL;DR: dog highly recommended; many dogs need rescuing and would love to have a law student adopt them!!!
