    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 Best Friend Twinkie ❤

    It had been one year since my dad had died and on his birthday my family and I decided to go to the shelter to get me a dog. I was excited because I've always loved dogs and couldn't wait to see what was going to happen. I walked down all the rows looking at each dog trying to...

    I have two dogs. I have a Morky (Maltese

    and yorkie mix). She is a sweetheart, so friendly. And a pure chihuahua. He is timid but very loving. I had a large, 85lb German shepherd, husky, lab mix. She was an amazing dog; she was my first dog. We got her when she was a few weeks old when I was 9. She lived a nice long...

    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.

    I had a Golden Retriever

    for nearly 13 years before he died of cancer. But I have two dogs now. Before my Golden died I went to Pets Mart for some treats and ended up coming home with a one eyed pug mixed named Barney but nicknamed Cuddle Bug. Noone wanted him for over a year because he had one eye so...

    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...

    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.

    The Hot Dog Test And Some Sappy Stuff

    I wish when people buy pets they understand

    that they are breathing creatures that they don't deserve to be treated like they are savages. So with that being said I am extremely disgusted by the Yulin dog festival taking place in China this year. I could never think of seeing my poor baby Thor being boiled or skinned or...

    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. :)

    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. :)

    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...

    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.
