I have two dogs, a seven year old dog and a puppy who is only a few weeks old. It amazes me the emotion and love that I get from my dogs. I grew up without a dog and am now just realizing the bond that can be there and where the saying "mans bestfriend" came from. My puppy is a pitbull, lab mix and he is the most loving dog i have ever seen. He snuggles and loves to be close. I think that if you are going to have a dog it is definitely a huge commintment and i am thankful for the time i spend with my dogs.
“Owners of dogs will have noticed that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they will think you are god. Whereas owners of cats are compelled to realize that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they draw the conclusion that they are gods.”
