My friend and I were having a conversation about dogs and I said that I like dogs. He said that I should buy a dog since I like dogs. I said that even though I like being around dogs and playing with them, I don't feel like owning a pet. My friend told me that I was not making sense by saying that I like dogs, but I don't feel like owning a pet. My friend told me that I'm just cheap and a tightwad for not buying a dog. I kept telling my friend that I'm not being a tightwad. I like being around dogs, but I don't feel like owning as a pet. My friend still insists that I'm a tightwad. We went on and on talking about this for a couple of hours! What do you think about this? I don't see what is the big deal about not buying a dog.
