I was just thinking about this now. I like the look of hounds, and would enjoy having one, but I feel like I can't be a hound owner. it's probably because if I have one, I can't just have one, i'd want a similarly sized friend(s) too. or a family of hounds(like one of the members here, helene :p ) but that's really above my means right now ! maybe i'll be able to think about it after some years pass. i've got a mini and a tiny, they get along well, but somehow a larger doll I feel needs a similarly large comrade. ahh. i'm very satisfied at the moment with my two dolls but I still admire hounds from afar.. on the other side of the internet. :p oh, yeah and narsha boy. I want to smother one in hugs. I love 'em but don't know if I could own one.
