    My roommate is afraid of dogs so I couldn't rescue the one puppy I found who needed a home. Luckily, the neighbors took this cute dog home.

    Big dogs are the best!!! I would love have a couple of newfoundlands when I move into my own place! I also would love a saint bernard. I need to be burried in big fluffy dogs.

    Just one reason I hate dogs. Because dogs bark a lot. That's why I prefer cats, but just one cat is enough.
