There’s something about dogs…I love all animals, but dogs are special. I wish I could have a big dog, but that’s not possible at this time in my life. I just became an empty nester and I’m getting used to being alone. It’s the first time in my life that until the kids come home from university, I have nobody to take care of but me for awhile. And honestly, I don’t want to be tied down more than I already am. I mean, I love my kids, but a dog? I can’t go anywhere if I have a dog. But in the back of my head, I think that maybe someday, I’d like to live on a farm. It sounds fun…well, until you have to clean up the manure. Then I think, nah, I’ll pass on that part. LOL
But I was looking through the posts about dogs. I’m not really a fan of little dogs. While I think those little Yorkies are cute and I’m more of a girly girl myself, I like big dogs! A German Shepherd, Labrador/Golden Retriever, Australian Shepherd, Great Pyrenees, Siberian Husky – you get the picture, right? If not, look below!
Lucky for me, there are a ton of dog owners in my neighborhood and they are always walking their dogs. So when I get the urge, I just go outside. There are a few of the neighborhood dogs that know me and they’ll strain on their leashes when they see me so I can pet them. And I’m in heaven!
I get my puppy/dog fix, chat with the neighbor for five minutes and go back in the house. It’s the perfect set up for me – no picking up poop, no vet bills and no responsibility. Just the five minute snuggle fest.
Now if I could find a nice single man with a dog….that would be perfect!
P.S. Excuse the crazy photos…I couldn’t get them to line up! But you’re smart, you can figure out that the ones I didn’t label were the Yorkie and German Shepherd! LOL
