Summary: My boyfriend and I have been talking engagement for a while. We've looked at rings, and we're both serious.
I've always wanted to be asked this way. 'After a romantic night we find some privacy and my boyfriend surprises me with an animal. And on the tag it's a heart that reads "Will you marry me?"'
At first I wanted a silver Persian kitten with green eyes.
Then a bulldog puppy.
Then, I decided I didn't want a fancy pedigree pet, I wanted an older shelter pet, someone that had been in the shelter forever, or someone on the kill list.
But that's just not possible right now because I have rats, and I don't want to add a pet because of them, rent increase, and my roommate has a dog.
Everyone thinks I want something crazy and grand. And he fears if he doesn't get it 'right' I will be disappointed and may even say no (which I would never).
I don't think I want anything over the top, we've always said we wanted to get pets together.
Now, I don't know what I want though because that's always been my dream. A pet and a fiance :) But I won't ask for it because I won't inconvenience him.
Any ideas, he really wants to know. We plan on not getting married for at least a year and a bit. And we plan on living together next August once I graduate.

We're at a standstill because apparently I'm being too vague and he WANTS to know more details.
Thanks for being judgmental dicks and b*tches in an already stressful time, and thank you, truly, to everyone who suggested something :)

I wouldn't get too worked up over it or you'll break your own heart. Worry about things like if your boyfriend would be a good husband/father and if you would be a good wife/mother rather than superficial things :)2

My cell phone kept fucking up over what I was trying to say. XD
Okay since y'all can't afford a real pet atm, why not by a plush version? Then put the collar on it asking you to marry you. So then the plush toy would be a promise to buy the real cat/dog breed that the toy is based on.1
