    I love waking up to my dogs.

    It's hard to have a bad start to the day with them around. If I wake up before them it's freaking adorable when they come looking for me. Or when I'm slowly waking up and the smallest stir will cause them to think it's time to wake up. It's the small things in life :)

    My dog makes me feel safe.

    One day he and I were taking a walk and I tripped on the sidewalk and fell down. OUCH! A very nice man across the street saw me and came across the street to help me. Boy, did my dog growl at him. I had to tell my dog that is was OK and he calmed down. And if there is anyone in...

    I am a quiet and shy person.

    Even with the few people I'm comfortable around, my mind is either racing or deep in thought. People are always asking what's wrong, even though I just enjoy being quiet and observant. It's so nice to have a dog that understands me. Who doesn't make me tell all my thoughts and...

    He made me laugh, every single day.

    He came into my life five years ago. He was a blessing, and he, more than anything else, helped me get back on my feet.At the time, I was at the lowest point in my life, close to suicidal, in a long, ongoing continuous pit of despair. I'd been that way since 2005 (earlier but...

    Your dog is the only creature in this world

    that loves you just because you exist. He doesn't need you to change, to apologize, to pay him money to be with him, to buy him presents. He won't leave you because you disrespected him. He loves you no matter what.

    She is my life. I can't move out of an awful situation because no landlords accept pit bulls.

    A perfect example is my rottweiler.

    I have no human friends, mostly because I have Asperger's Syndrome, and I therefore have bad social anxiety, so I never had the motive to try and make friends, because people make me anxious, so eventually I got used to not having friends. Human friends, that is, but everyone...

    I once had two dogs and they were my life

    but recently one put down which hit me like a truck! Now I've only got Boo(the other dog) but when Milo got put down, my life changed. I did truly lose a bar friend. Even though I've still got boo and trust me she is my world. I can never go back to the way I was with milo.
