English translation:Are you thinking puppy
Explanation:
This is a good one ... plenty of hits. More conversational as alternative ...but there are plenty of others

As in "Are you thinking puppy or one more mature? With a puppy, it's going to need constant attention at first, that said I'd wait to get a puppy until school breaks for Summer."
