My dogs are family and treated like family. Yeah, I’m one of those!! If they don’t like you I probably won’t either. If you visit my house I guarantee when you leave you will have dog hair hitching a ride. I can’t imagine what life would be like without them. Kate is a 2011 model and Eros a 2012. Kate had a few problems when she was a pup. She had crystals in her urine and had hip surgery at a year old.
She slept on the couch and I slept on the floor beside her. When she was healed up she became my ride dog.
I am a retired farrier and she loved going to the barns with me. She took her riding shotgun seriously.
Then there is Eros. He was so little when he was a pup. He now ways 124 pounds.
He can be pretty intimidating. He is a big teddy bear. He is definitely a “protector”.
“A dog is the only thing on Earth that loves you more than you loves yourself.” – Josh Billings
They both have their own personalities. They are good listeners, loyal, and give unconditional love. They are always glad to see you and add joy to your life.
Now don’t get me wrong. They can get sick and leave a big mess to clean up and they can just simply be a pain in the butt. They are a huge responsibility. All in all I still say they are worth it.
Nope they aren’t just dogs. They’re family.
