I'm in the same camp as Skywing, but my aunt and uncle had a pet Labrador called Liberty many moons ago, and she was an awesome dog!
I'm guessing you know a bit about the forums already if @kodachrome introduced you to the site, but feel free to check out The Ultimate Guide to Zelda Universe! if you need assistance with anything. You're also more than welcome to message either @Orion or myself, as we moderate Newbie Central.
Have you thought about joining a clan yet?
Looking forward to seeing you around.
