Mitigating factors: My 7-year-old daughter already named him ("Balloon," if you are wondering what the name is); my current work schedule and volume (i.e., Not enough time in a day); he is in a shelter but will surely find a good home if not with us; my upcoming travel, some with daughter, some without; I haven't had a dog since I was a kid and even then not a dog that I took care of for more than a week or so; my daughter loves people and dogs; stuff that I won't prioritize by even mentioning here (oh, I can't help it --my daughter's dad's reaction and the people in the shelter's potential reaction if I now say no).
