True Love

I love my dog.

Yeah, I know. Who doesn't love their dog? But many people have dumped potential suitors because they didn't like their dog (or cat). Many people seem to think that their pet loves THEM when really they probably just give you attention so that they can get food. Check out more details on this here.

Excerpt from above link:

They dance with joy when we come home, put their heads on our knees and stare longingly into our eyes. Ah, we think, at last, the love and loyalty we so richly deserve and so rarely receive. Over thousands of years of living with humans, dogs have become wily and transfixing sidekicks with the particularly appealing characteristic of being unable to speak. We are therefore free to fill in the blanks with what we need to hear. (What the dog may really be telling us, much of the time, is, "Feed me.")

I never could keep a pet long enough to have this feeling.

Then again, I can't seem to keep a boyfriend either! LOL...

These are things I'm working on in 2007. ;)

Your dog is very cute.
