i think i panicked because of all the responsibility i felt over suddennly having a puppy to take care of. and one of the main reasons i wanted to take him back to the pet store was that i was afraid that i would get attached and then sometime in the future, we would have to get rid of him. cats i don't worry about so much. both of my cats are very loving, but they don't really need me near as much as a puppy does.
maybe i was trying to sort of have a kid. i have, in the past, really wanted to have a kid NOW. it has been an obsession. but right now is not a good time (i am in college). so instead, all the sudden i had to have a dog.
thanks for responding, everyone. makes me feel like maybe it wasn't so crazy after all.
