We adopted a dog when he was 1 1/2 years old. He was so perfect for us. He would never run away, he slept with us everyday and night. He was there through everything. Dogs can sense when something is wrong or going on and he could. He was there for me when my parents divorced and he was there everytime as a child I had a broken heart. The only kind of animals I get are from the shelter. They are the best!! They are so loving and loyal and perfect. They may have their faults but who doesnt.
I think he would say he hated when I carried him around like a baby when I was younger but that we took great care of him. I hope he would say thank you and I know he would say he loved us.
