    Probably because I grew up on farms.

    Been Frustrated

    I have spent the past 6 months being confused and berating myself because I couldn't stop my dog from gaining weight. I called the vet a couple of months ago to tell her she was still gaining and I didn't think cutting the food was helping. Of course she asked if I was giving...

    I Love Them All

    I love all animals, big ones, small ones, smelly ones, furry ones, scaley ones. I wish I could work in a zoo - it would probably be my dream job. I wouldn't mind if all I was doing is clearing animal poo all day just so long as I could spend some time with them!

    Smile...I have to distance myself,

    let nature have it's way, but it breaks my heart. I used to feed the birds, but sparrows come in droves, my small yard covered in their droppings to be cleaned in the spring. I started to think about the long term effect of aiding and where to draw the line. If I feed 20...

    Amazing Little Things ^.^

    I'm going to just put it like this. Without animals we would be nothing :). They can be taught to help us and watch over us. Without animals I could honestly say I would not know what to do with my life. I know once my dogs time comes I'm am going to be completely crushed and...

    3 Stoopid Dogs

    Animals do the joint magic tricks of calming

    and exciting me. If there's an animal in the room I will focus exclusively on them to the detriment of all the people around.

    Animal Lover

    I love animals! I want a golden retriver and a horse when I'm older. (I'm 13) My mom won't let me take riding lessons or get a pet because she hates animals. So I'm stuck dreaming about getting a pet. I also want to see the Lipizzans perform at the Spanish Riding School.

    ...not in the "adult" sense,

    I must clarify. Oh and not in the taxidermy way either... mammal heads on wall plaques creep me out. I fish but I don't hunt... I eat meat just less often and I eat sustainably produced feed.
