    William J Thomas (he Loves Them Too)

    With cats, or dogs, as with children, you take what you get. No two are alike, and you can't tell by looking what their personalities will be. But you can find something to love in each of them. There is an author I think you might enjoy. His name is William J Thomas. He writes...

    Hunter's Eyes!

    Just now my big male wolf dog came up to me where I was sitting on the couch and laid his head against my leg and looked into my eyes with his big dark brown eyes which said "I love you" so much I can't imagine that there is any human that could convey that message so beautifully...

    Once my dog Sundance got in a real bad fight and had to have an emergency castration. After 3 days I couldn't stand not having him around so I went to the vet to get him. The vet told me he was fine but was still having a hard time walking so I should keep him there...

    I adore animals and I see reflected in their

    eyes the majesty of God's creation. Their intelligence is breath taking. We used to have a dog that when I came home rather stressed and angry from work, she would read my expression, wag her tail but not bark, not demand being stroked, she would just stare at me from a...

    I TEND TOWARDS THE SHY MORE THAN THE OUTGOING.

    Same when I chose our first dog 14 years ago. I am fundamentally a shy and ritiring man that just prefers living on the outskirts of everything in life and at times be forgotten. Quite a few years ago our family went on vacation to our mothers home village overlooking the sea...

    Pet Cohabitation

    I believe that my relationships with my animals have prepared me for the major human losses that I have faced, and will face, during the course of my life. YOU WILL OUT LIVE your pets, unless maybe you get a turtle or bird that lives to 100. I have lived with pets since I can...

    MY SISTERS DOG.At times I “dog sit”

    my sister’s dog and I have to mediate between the dog and my work. The dog, called Leyla by the way, always wants my attention and has a habit of standing on my lap, actually embracing me as a human would, and she enters into a trance when I softly scratch her behind her...

    I absolutely believe animals are wiser

    than humans; an animal loves us unconditionally. I would love to be able to thoroughly trust people where I, too, could do the same.
