Day 11 - Dogs


I'm a dog person. I like cats. I just prefer dogs. I've had dogs most of my life. But the best dogs I've ever had have been Golden Retrievers. One dog in particular, Max, was my best friend. I got him when I was about 13 years old. He was with me through high school, through college and then when I moved after college he followed me to my new home. He died at age 13 and making the decision to help him be at peace was the most difficult decision I've ever made. I loved him so much but I couldn't bear to see him suffer any longer. All you have to do with a dog is feed him, give him a place to play and love him. That's it. No other expectations and you receive so much in return. Dogs bring joy to my life.

I'm a cat person but if I was to get a dog, it would be a golden. My aunt has had 3 since I was young and my mother recent had one. I just love them.

We have a Golden Retriever - Maxie. I'm much more a dog person than a cat one. Although cats always look so cute on peoples blogs!


Merry Christmas!

Yesterday we spotted a guy selling Shelties. Oh man were they hard to leave behind.
