They Are All My Buddies
I've never bought a dog in my life, but I've always had them. I believe dogs come to us when we need them in our lives. I've been amply blessed in that respect. I have 2 ancient chihuahuas, 2 corgi mixes, and 2 mixed breeds of indeterminate origin. One of the mixed breeds is the mother of the other one, and I am the only person in the world that she likes. I've had her all her life, but she is just skittish to everyone but me. They are all like family to me, and we get along just fine. I think more people should follow dogs' rules for getting along in this world: share the food, don't step on anybody's tails, take frequent naps and get plenty of exercise.
