Should I Get a New Dog?

With this pandemic still preventing me from doing all the things I’d love to do right now, I find myself bored at home way more than I’d wish. I was thinking that maybe getting a puppy would help me deal with my boredom but I’ve seen some of my best friends get dogs and their life seemed like Hell for a while until the dog was able to entertain itself somewhat. I’m at loss for what to do if you know something I don’t I’d love to hear it.

Please contact me if you think I should get a dog. If I did get a dog, it would be a white lab and her name would be Bagel.

Thanks in advance!
