    Life before rescuing my little monster was just

    so grey and sad. It's true, no matter what my dog will always be my bestfriend first, before any human lol Unconditional love at it's finest.

    My Fur-babies...

    I cannot imagine, nor do I want to, getting up just one day and not having my fur-babies here. The love, the bond, the company...If we humans could ever love so completely and without restraint, think of what a beautiful life that would be. I have to work on not mourning them...

    I grew up having pets!

    They are more like family to me. I have 3 cats and if I lost any of them I would be so devastated. I love my babies.

    My Pack

    I've always had a special affinity to dogs.  My first dog was in my family before I was born and was half wolf/husky...he lived until 19 years old.  He was able to sense my feelings...whether lonely...sick or just wanting to be near him...he was always there and...

    We are far from being

    not only a perfect family, but even a stable one. My brothers have often stolen from my mum and I and one of them is into drugs, the other one is in a gang. One time my youngest brother stole my camera and a bunch of cash I had in my drawer. I found out later he used the money...

    Nor would I want to. There were times I've had

    to do without. My wife was afraid of dogs till we got us a Labrador mix. She learned how to train and the two of them were amazing. We were stringing up some electric fencing (neighbor had a bull that loved to try to jump over, fixed that!) one day. I was on the other side...

    I have always loved animals,

    I was resistant towards the idea of having a pet

    until the age of 23 when my parents decided to get a cat. Now I can't imagine life without her.

    Nature Made Beasts, Plants And Other Things...

    ...and caring for a beast, pot plant or even your own pet-rock, you keep contact to mother nature. The moment you lose that ever thinner thread of primal urge and caring for such things, you lose your own connection to nature, and are bound to become a damn borg...even if you don...
