    I love my dogs often more

    than family and friends. They always know the right words to say. It kills me they do not live longer. My dog had two cancerous tumors removed- thank God in the early stages. Been changing her diet to no pet store dog food to meat, vegetables, and fruit. Did you know that starch...

    My Dog Knows When I Need A Friend

    I think dogs are our best friends too. Whenever I feel alone or had a bad day at college, my dog always seems to know. She comes up to me. I pet her head a few times. Then, I put her up on my bed to sleep. She finds her spot and sleeps right next to me as I do my school work. She...

    Of Course They Are

    They want nothing but to be loved and offer so much in return. Unconditional love, loyalty, companionship.  They are eternally happy, so joyous just to spend time with us.  Whether it is a walk, a ride in the car, or sitting on the couch watching TV. They will also...

    Love My Dog!:)

    I have a dog that we rescued from an abusive owner. Whenever I would cry from the horrible things happening at home, my dog would push open my bedroom door and comfort me. She would sit down infront of me and smell my eyes and I would just hug her.
