Do you think dogs are good companions?

Read some: Dog Articles 

I am terrified of big dogs. I've been attacked by two big German shepherds while I was growing up. One was when I was 5, the owner was lifting me over their fence to put me into their backyard and their dog didn't like that so he jumped up and ripped me from the guys arms and started attacking me, bit a big chunk out of my leg.. Then when I was 11 I was rollerblading around the park by my house and a young girl had her dog, her dog charged at me an she let go of the leash, dog jumped me from behind and ripped apart my back and then flipped me over and bit my face. I know not all dogs are like this so I do hope to one day get a dog. My fiance really wants to get a dog.

We have two dogs (brother and sister Australian Shepherd) and they are smart, faster than greased lightning and super affectionate animals. They are also beloved. One disturbing trend that I am noticing, is the growing amount of people who either abuse or neglect animals, That is terribly sad!

I felt so bad for the dogs that were barking for such a long time. Many people called the police but everyone felt very bad for the dogs. We were annoyed with the noise but also very concerned for the dogs.

I didn't get too much done of ChatAbout yesterday. One reason? One of my neighbors had two barking dogs. These dogs never shut up. I live in a highly populated area. I went outside to see where the barking was coming was the 3rd floor of my apartment building. The dogs barked and cried for at least 3 hours. Poor babies. Two people called the police at various times. Tomorrow, the building manager will hear about this....

I love dogs. Although I used to have a dog long time ago, but died of old age I never intend to get another one due to its short life.

I know what you mean. I have had several do. It killed my dogs in my life that I have loved and los and each time it killed my heart each and every time. Part of me wants anther dog, but I just don't know if my husband and I can take that kind of pain again. Our last dog developed advanced kidney failure at 5 years old and we still have no idea why. We had to put her down because she was in great pain. It hurt all of us really badly. Still breaks my heart just thinking about it.

I fully believe your dog would want you to get another dog, rescue one from a shelter and give it the love you would have given him. I understand how hard it is though. I've lost several dogs, most to old age and one to cancer. My Jack, who is 9, is currently suffering from bone cancer. Soon he'll have to be put down, but we're going to do our best to make the best of the time we have with him. We have three other dogs, which I'm thankful for. I couldn't imagine my house without a dog.

Dogs can be cute when they want to be but yet sometimes they can be vicious also depends on how their owners treat them. I love the heck out of my sisters dogs because they are friendly especially if they know the person

Many dogs are simply protective of their families so if you are a stranger always ask your friend to introduce you to their dog. This isn't a sign of viciousness, just protectiveness, it's what I expect my dogs to do.

I love my doggie to death!! He keeps my family and I very entertained. Dogs truly bring happiness to this wold!!

we have 2 pitbulls, one is our dog that weve had since she was 8 months old, the other is my mother in laws. shes also a pitbull, shes 3 . shes staying here for a few months. they are onderful dogs, very hyper though lol love to play

Yes my dog Frenzal is definitely my best friend. Of course he doesn't realise that he is a dog. I have a dog door so he comes and goes as he likes. I love him so much.

I absolutely love my lab. His name is Sundance, and he means the world to me. He shows more love than most humans I know.

dogs are man's bestfriend and it shows love to us even in their way. i like dogs with very shiny and a smooth fur which i most likely to hug.

Look at that lonely dog in the picture, it reminds me of my cute little puppy who I haven't seen for more that an year now.

I always had dogs growing up, usually large ones, but then I moved away from home and didn't have the ability to have one. Luckily, I now have an Alaskan Malamute and my heart is full once again!

They are cute, adventure seeking and furry.
If I had a dog right now I would take care of him as much as I could. I would make sure he was well fed and had enough water.

I am thinking about getting a new dog. The puppy I have now is not nice to my daughter. I might give him to my great aunt. she is looking for a small dog. I think he would be great for her

what kind of dog are you thinking about getting? im sorry to hear the puppy you have now is not getting along with your daughter for whatever reasons. what kind is it?

Have you considered taking it for training? A lot of times we do things that the dog or puppy may view as aggressive and a lot of times we do it without realizing. Your daughter should go with the dog and work with it. I'd give it my best before passing the dog off on someone else.

We have a dog in the house, his name is Prince, he will be turning 9 years old this year. Prince is a good companion, welcomes us every time we come home and guard the house when we are not around.

We have two dogs. I do know their names because my brother makes crazy names for them. And thus I always forgot what are their names

Dogs are a person's best friend. They are there when you are happy. They are there when you are sad. Other than barking, they usually don't talk back lol

true lol. that is one of the benefits of dogs over kids lol. mine does kinda bark at me when he wants out of his cage though lol

I have 2 dogs (jack/pug mix & full pug) and really think they make great companions. They follow me around when I'm home and are always excited to see when when I get in. I love it.

I think dogs are great! They are so cute too. I want to get a little pooch myself. Seems as though dogs can do a lot of things with training. Helping the blind is one of those things.

How many dogs do you have and what breeds are they I have 3 and they are 2 jack russells and I jack Russell crossed Chihuahua

Dear Marcus Collins, I have one dog a Jack Russell. She is named Bridget, the goddess for women and children. She is a very hyper dog and gets into all kinds of trouble. But, she shows so much love and loyalty I forgive all. Tell me about your Jack Russells.

We have 2 dogs, I do not know their breeds. In our country, having a dog without breeding history is actually common.

We currently have four dogs. Our Jack is a redbone, our Lola is a mix between a pit, lab and heeler, our Benito is a Catahoula and our Sergio is a Catahoula/Lab mix. All of them were rescues that we found with the exception of Jack who was the puppy of a hurricane katrina dog we were fostering. His owners let us keep him when we reconnected with them to return her dog. =)
