It's no coincidence that a dog is a man's best friend; they're more faithful than most other animals, and more faithful than many people.
Delilah The sun was shining into my bedroom as it does every morning. I could feel the warmth on my face, and hear the bird chirping. Slowly opening my eyes as my face was in sunlight was glorious, I could smell the hot season coming around. As it happens to every person my age, I have to get ready for school. I turn over and look at the time, and notice I'm running late. I look around for a moment and scratch my head. I look at the time again, then check my phone. I have a text message from an old friend/neighbor.

4 Reasons to Groom Your Dog (And 5 Reasons to Hire a Groomer!)
It’s spring! And the pooches, have their fluffy masses of their winter fur coat that may or may not need, well I’ll just say it, a little attention. Maybe that ‘daily’ brushing of their luxurious locks didn’t exactly happen every day, or maybe there are just so rambunctious that their fur looks the same color as the ruts they have dug up in your backyard. (Parents of short-haired fur babies, you may not understand this my story).
My boys (and their mom) wanted me to try and win a puppy at a carnival game booth. A puppy? A real live puppy? There they were...a whole litter, yapping away in a large cardboard box. With three wild kids all under the age of six, who needs a puppy? But they would not stop pleading until I finally said I would try. The odds were that I would lose anyway.
A 5-Pound Dog Protected Me in the Dark of Night
It was 2 a.m. when Dagney scratched on the mirror to go out. A noise that wakes me and not my husband, go figure. I rolled out of bed and we headed outside. The second the door opened, Dagney charged out, but instead of heading towards the shop with the motion light like she usually does, she veered to the right. Thinking it strange, I grabbed the flashlight from the windowsill and shinned the spotlight around the yard.
One of the hardest things for a pet owner to do is to say goodbye. This is something I know intimately. I’ve had to say the final farewell a few times over the years. It’s heartbreaking. Gut wrenching. Agonizing. But also, it is inevitable. And it’s the inevitability that’s the hardest part. It’s the looming specter that haunts our relationship. From adorable new arrival to grey-muzzled senior.
FOUR BROTHERS FINALLY GET A BABY SISTER
Growing up I always thought I was “cat” person because that was my mother’s pet of choice. My mother came from a family of cat lovers so it isn’t surprising we always had a pet cat growing up. I always loved cats and a few times our cats even had kittens. That was so exciting!
Whatever It Takes
This photo is one of Ellie's happiest moments, it may not be well photographed, but anyone who saw this would swear that she's smiling. Ellie was a great dog, one that didn't get the life she deserved until she was ten years old. Even then, she was only able to fully enjoy her new found life for about two and a half years before her illnesses started to take over, and we eventually had to say goodbye.

The one who saved me but doesn't know it
I am a 38 year old women who has been diagnosed with sever depression and Rheumatoid Arthritis. I had some very dark days in the past. There where days where I did not want the sun light to come into the house, I did not want to shower or even get up from the couch. I just let in the darkness and the dark thoughts. As a mother I would never cry in front of my children I would go to the bathroom while they slept or just told them I was going to go take a shower and just cry, sat there and let the water so call wash away my pain.
Speedy Couch Potato.
So, the time came for a dog. There's no such thing as 'the right time', only the time when your heart feels it needs a dog to snuggle in there and make you a better version of yourself. I was working from home, and I had visions of me and the dog having quality, quiet (important for me!) time together. We wanted to rescue, and we'd been to a couple of rescue centres, but nothing fell into place. It wasn't to be just yet.
