    I'm pretty sure my dog

    and I have a silent language of nodding heads and waving. Either that, or I'm insane.

    I am an really big lover of animals.

    I am mostly a dog kind of guy. I love the big powerful breeds who can almost knock you over when roughhousing. I love to wrestle with them and just have fun. But i also love training them. I used to be a part of a club that trained K9 dogs here in the Netherlands and I loved it...

    I adopted a kitten from an animal shelter,

    and now I work there at that same shelter! It's a great way to take care of animals you love and seeing them everyday, without having to have them all living in your home

    I'm a volunteer at my local animal shelter,

    Every animal, big and small.

    Love them all. Would never intentionally hurt them. I would hurt any other human that intentionally did though.

    Sad and discouraging experience today at my

    We had a Lhasapoo. For those of you

    who don't know what a Lhasapoo is it's a Lhasa apso poodle cross. We travel to Scotland every 4 years and go camping. It was hard on us cause it was too expensive to put her in the kennels and had no one to look after her. She didn't travel well while camping. So we gave her...

    Currently don't have my own only get to see my

    family's and those at the animal shelter I volunteer at. However, I would like to just want to be sure I can afford to take care of them , I don't think it's fair to them otherwise if I can't. Just my opinion.

    as if she's a person & can understand me. She really seems to enjoy it though. I even have a funny voice I use for her to reply to me. I think this is party due to the fact that no matter what she always wants to hear what I have to say (: She's always loving. She always thinks...

    we took our 10 month black lab / golden

    retriever mix to a nice large pond on a hike and threw her bumper for water retrieves. She was such a dork and having lots of fun and did 8 + good retrieves then on the last throw she wouldn't go in the water and we left without her bumper.

    when I got my very first pet- a rabbit. Ever since then, I've absolutely loved animals and I'm going to study animal science. This is my current bunny Sunny, isn't she a cutie?

    I think it's really unfortunate

    when people discriminate against dogs because of their breed, especially when they look at my dog like he's going to attack them or something. If only they could see that he's seriously just a huge love monster! :)
