Awww, your dog is so cute :3
I love dogs in general, but I especially love the little dogs. I think it would be awesome to get a corgi of some kind. I dogsit one ocasionally and they are the cutest things ever.
Cats on the other hand, are a completely different story.
I'm a silhouette, asking every now and then
Is it over yet? Will I ever feel again?
I'm a silhouette, chasing rainbows on my own
But the more I try to move on, the more I feel alone
So I watch the summer stars to lead me home.

The main dogs I've had have been toy poodles and one standard poodle. I like them a lot. :3 But my mom worked as a dog groomer for a while so she had no problem grooming her, it's not that way for everyone.

Most of the dogs I had growing up were Labs because my dad used to hunt a lot. The one I have now is a chihuahua. Here name is Piper.

My dog is rude, he hardly ever listens to commands and he practically drags me whenever I take him for a walk. :(

I'm jealous of you guys. My dog died in February just two weeks shy of his 15th birthday. I really want a new dog though...maybe after I move out.
And just like that, the story ends.

Aww, I'm sorry to hear that! May he rest in peace. :3

And you should! Dogs are lovely companions (as you probably already know.)

I don't have a dog; never had one. I never really had any pets... I clearly was a lonely child.

Our oldest is 9 now, and he's really showing his age. Has a hard time getting around and stuff.
If you meet me, have some courtesy, have some sympathy, and some taste.

Y'all don't have it anymore? There was only one pet we had recently that we had to give up. It was a medium sized dog we named 'Charlie', and we had to give him away because he was too hyper. We don't have a yard for him to run in...our backyard is basically a glorified courtyard...with the tiniest patch of grass ever. The size of it is perfect for our chihuahua...but not for a bigger dog. :(

Truthfully the only pet I ever really wanted were the cats that we've had over the years. I'm much more of a cat person than a dog person. Cats you can leave outside...no smell or anything. You can just bring them inside when you want to play with them. XDD

Are you kidding? My family leaves my dog outside in the backyard unless we want to play with him :]

It all depends on the animal's distinct personality. Cats can be like those dogs, and dogs can act like cats. You can pretty much tell when you get to the animal shelter most of the time though.

That's not always true.An animal you meet at an animal shelter could seem timid and afraid because of the stress of being in a shelter environment, but loosen up when they are adopted and settle into their new home. I've seen this many times, including in my own cat who I adopted from the shelter I volunteered at. In the shelter she was quiet and I never saw her do much, but when she got settled into home her personality came out. She is an affectionate, playful, expressive cat, at times she can be very vocal. You can't just see how they act in the shelter and think that's always how they are. The fact is being in an animal shelter around lots of strange people is very stressful for an animal.

This was what happened with my dog. We got her at a shelter and even though she had a few issues (like we always had to have her on a leash when she was out) she was pretty well adapted to people.

I effing hate dogs.



But only because I'm so scared of them. It's sad when I see a cute puppy, too, I just can't go near it.

Dogs are ok, I just don't really like big dogs. There are some things about dogs I don't really like like constantly begging for food and such, they also are very dependent on you to entertain them it seems. Cats will generally go entertain themselves when they get bored.

I tell dogs what I tell people when they first come into my place - "Do what you want, just don't pee on the floor." Sadly they ignore that bit more often than not but oh well.

Had my kitten Zulu play with the puppies we had this morning btw, surprised the mom allowed it seeing how the puppies are less than a month old right now.

Not all dogs are like that. Some will stop asking for food once you tell them not to. For example, my dog only stays in two places at all in the house because we've told him to, and he refuses to go anywhere other than that.

Also, dogs aren't that hard to entertain so it's just a matter of being around all the time.
