    One of my dogs ( an English Springer Spaniel,) looks uncannily like the Spaniel in the photograph/avatar of this group :) I also have an English Cocker Spaniel. I have an absolute soft-spot for Spaniels, although adore all breeds of dogs. My Boy and...

    Dogs Are The Best...

    I love cats, but during the past few years I've begun to really love dogs, too. I've been around dogs all my life. I was born with a Lhasa Apso in my family. He had to be pts when I was three years old, though. I'd been around so many different dogs during my childhood. My...

    Love My Babies

    I love dogs and I am such a sucker for a stray.  I am so bad about taking in any stray I hear about and attempting to find it a great home.  I have also been known to keep them for long periods of time until a home can be found.  Yes I love dogs and I am most...

    I'm definitely a dog person.

    I haven't had a dog since our family dog died about 10 years ago. Lately I've really been wanting to adopt a dog, but I live in a pretty small one bedroom apartment and that just wouldn't be fair to the animal. I've already got some names picked out for when I eventually get a...

    This is Ellie. We adopted her a few months

    after we lost our 13-year-old dog to lymphoma. She was 8 weeks old when we brought her home and she's now 2 years old. She's the sole furbaby in our home right now. Hard to believe at one time we had 3 dogs and 2 cats, all of whom have passed away. The circle of life, I guess...

    Wasn't Sure

    I love most animals and couldn't decide whether I was a cat person or a dog person so I recalled to see which I look forward to greeting the most when visiting a friend with pets; their dog or cat?  Dog, definitely.  I'll take a cat on a lap anytime but the greeting of...

    Ever since I was born I had a dog.

    My parents adopted a dog about 4 years before I was born. She passed away when I was in 1st grade and I remember that was the first time I ever saw any emotion from my dad. We got my next sibling about 3 years later from a local animal shelter. Up until then, however, I had a...

    You Can Buy Happiness

    As soon as I walk through the door at home my dog rushes me with his tail wagging so thrilled to see me. I could be having the worst day but none of that matters to him, he is just happy I'm home. That is something I have yet to see from a cat. Nothing can compare to the pure...

    I wish more people were like dogs - friendly,

    easy going, happy and basically content with life. They don't judge you or get embarrassed by you. They don't care if you're fat, ugly and lazy. They just wanna be your friend - through thick and thin.

    I'm far away from my home,

    I have 2 German Shepard in the house. I miss them very badly. In the new place, near the place I stay, there are two cute dogs that come running to the gate and bark. Reminds me of my babies back home. Makes me feel so light that glee in delight. Dogs be the best!

    Me Too

    I am a dog person - it is a birth defect.  The circus owner gave me the name JO JO the dog boy.  You can see me when the circus comes to town.  The only problem is that every time I see a fire hydrant, well I have to go.

    I like cats and adore bunnies, but my preferred animal companion is a dog. They're so loyal and sweet, and they show you evry time they can how grateful they are for your affections. I wish humans were more like dogs, actually. lol

    Doggy Snores

    I love it when my dogs are asleep and they start to snore. I find it to be very soothing. All I have to do is listen to them, and I will relax and fall asleep too. My smallest dog is a chihuahua, and he snores the loudest. My other dogs are Great Danes and they have a lip...

    I really love cats too,

    but I would much rather have a dog if I could only choose one. I just like how they are more social and dependent than a cat is. Also, they offer more than a cat.

    I never used to be a dog person. But I promised my daughter she could have a puppy for her birthday. She had seen some Maltese/Pomeranian puppies she liked at the pet store. She picked one out of the cage and I noticed the expression of one of the ones that was left. In the cage...

    I have always been a dog lover and I always will be! Sometimes I think dogs treat us better then people do! I am in dog rescue and for me it that isn't a thing I do on a whim it is a lifestyle that I whole heartedly love! If I can save one dog it is so worth it to me!
