My whole life I've been pretty indifferent to having children. Maybe if I fall in love with someone who wants them, but my heart was never set on it. Until just tonight when I was putting my dog to sleep by rubbing her belly and I realized that I'd kind of love to do that with a kid. Now - I just need to find a partner who shares the same values and dreams as me and we'll be good to go. I'm 34 though. Time's a ticking. Holy fuck. What do I do?

ETA:

Is life with a dog all that different?
