Thought I Was a Cat Person For 17 Years
I grew up with lots of cats. My parents loved Siamese cats so that was all I really knew. I was fortunate enough to have 17 wonderful years with one of them. About 7 months after she passed my husband talked me into going to the shelter. I saw Pugsly, he was a stray between 5 and 7 and was just so full of life and so cute. So he came home with us. We enjoyed 11 wonderful years with him. In November of 2007 I had to have him euthanized--his organ systems were shutting down and his quality of life wasn't good. I was being selfish and had to let go. I miss him terribly and still cry over my loss, but he did teach me how special dogs really are.
