    Recently got a puppy

    and its teaching me a lot of things and improving me as a person, I didn't know lots of things could happen when you adopt a puppy. He also makes me feel more accepting of myself. Weird, but I'm thankful.

    Well, because I have no self control.

    .. I adopted another pitbull today. She's only 3 months old and was found in a crate in someone's basement with two other puppies who didn't make it to the vet. I'm so excited to finally have another rescue puppy. :)

    I don't quite understand how anybody can truly

    dislike dogs without any valid reasons. I literally can't comprehend how someone cannot love something that will never judge or hurt you, something that will love you unconditionally and be by your side no matter what. I feel bad for people without a dog in their life.

    I took one of my dogs to the park earlier today,

    and someone with her golden retriever (who was growling at my dog) told me to, "Get that vicious beast out of the park before it kills someone". What a sad and uneducated world we live in.

    He is an Australian Shepard.

    We trained him well. He is 4 years old. My wife dislikes the fact that he sleeps in our bed but I know she secretly loves him. Because honestly, how can you not love him? He is the sweetest thing.

    This Could Only Happen To Me

    My son calls this "the funniest thing he will ever see in his whole life". Of course, it is something stupid I did. My 2-yr old, 100 lb "puppy" has developed a nasty habit of running between people's legs as they descend the stairs from our second floor to the first floor. He...

    This is Viktor. An American Bully,

    rescued from a backyard breeder/dogfighting ring. Because of his bad breeding, he has hip dysplasia and a heart murmur. But my other dogs and I love him even though he can't play like the others. :)

    She is a pembroke welsh corgi.

    We got her at a pet store in a mall as a puppy when I was 11. She was absolutely adorable. She still is even though she's 9 years old now, but honestly doesn't look or act like an old dog at all, so I think she still has quite some time left. (I read small dogs live longer than...

    No matter how tough of a day I've had our dog

    is always at the door to greet me, tail wagging and jumping around kind of excited. Isn't unconditional love grand?

    My Dog Saved My Life

    Wyatt is a medium sized dog.  He is a black and white mixed breed.  I adopted him from a shelter when he was a puppy.  Groomers and vets have told me they suspect he is part schnauzer and part terrier.  He loves to eat any kind of food that comes from a noisy...

    My dog is half Australian shepherd

    and half sneaky neighbor's dog. She is well trained, and just a sweet, intelligent, fantastic dog. She is something else, a little ball of personality, and always eager to please. This is the first of the "cattle" dog types I've owned. I picked her up at a rescue because she...
