    Dogs Bring Me Joy

    I can't say that about too many things, but dogs truly bring joy to my life.  Right now I have a very anti-social cat, so I am afraid to bring a dog into the house for fear she might start doing something that ticked off kitties like to do...pee on the carpets.  So, I...

    One Wishes

    Everyone else on the street has one par us. So I suppose it's no like I miss out on playing with the dogs, they're out of the streets most weekends playing with all the children. You do wish for one of your own though, but it'll never happen for me at the moment. My Dad doesn't...

    Once Had One.

    I used to have a dog, I miss her. Lost her Feb. 2, 2005. Never found. I was out of state when she got out of the backyard. She was living with my parents. I would love to have more dogs in the future.  Even fostering would be better than never owning my own dog(s).  ...

    Never Got To Have One

    Ive had cats all my life. I love them dearly but they are just so mellow. Sometimes I want a huge ol fuzzball to knock me down with slobbery kisses. I wanna walk my pal through the park and play games. My cats only play one game: sleep on her pillow until she gets home. Gets...

    Dog Over Cat

      My whole life growing up I always had dogs at least one at a time. I enjoy their company and spending time doing things with them, you can't really do that with cats when all they wanna do is sleep, laze around, or just walk around the house. Boring really. With dogs you can...

    Man's Best Friend

    I don't own a dog but my brother does and he lives with me. Dogs are amazing creatures you just have to love and take care of them. But I do prefer cats over dogs though but I love animals most of them.

    The Dog Knew What I Was Thinking

    I'm not the typical animal lover. I grew up as a shy child, unsure of myself. I was afraid of dogs. Last week, I went out to a small park. It has a bench under a low tree, almost hidden. I can relax on that bench, but in order to get there, I had to cross an open area. There were...
