When I decided to teach English in Korea, I knew that it would be hard to leave my friends and family. But I also knew that with Skype, Facebook, Twitter, and email it would be very easy to keep in contact with everyone. What I didn’t realize, however, is just how much I would miss being around animals. Having had a dog my whole life, living in Korea is the first time I find myself pet-less. Which is why, when one of the other English teachers at my school told me about the dog shelter in my neighbourhood, I had to check it out.

If I wasn't so busy trying to take advantage of my weekend trips while teaching English in Korea, I would get myself a dog in a heartbeat. I have a dog back in America and I miss him so much. Sometimes I have an urge to go and get a dog, but I end up stopping myself by planning a trip.
