I Love Dogs

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

    I got this dog for my daughter. We call him, her ’emotional support’ dog, but I believe he is ‘ours’. He’s a greyhound/Great Pyrenees mix, and simply beautiful. He’s with me, a lot more than he is with her, so when you ask him, “Where’s Mommy?”, he looks at both of us. Haha


  2. We are narrowing down the search now, we need a man who is not narcissistic who has a farm but you don’t have to work on it, he needs to be single and have a dog 🐕 sorry a big dog, he needs to be the right age, probably needs to have his own teeth 🤔 good luck with that search 😸
