D is for Dog

Partners in crime

I am definitely a dog person.  We always had dogs when I was growing up and there’s something almost human-like about them.  They are intelligent, intuitive and incredibly loyal.  As an angst-ridden teen I always confided in our dogs.

We don’t have a dog of our own, but it is something I have given a lot of thought to lately.  I always said that I would wait until the kid was older – a boisterous toddler doesn’t really seem fair on a dog.  Increasingly though, as I watch him with my mum’s dog Gypsy, I wonder if at four he’s old enough.  He will sit for hours stroking her or throwing a ball for her to fetch and he loves nothing more than taking her on long walks.

If I were to get a dog, it would definitely be a rescue dog.  Both dogs we had growing up were from the RSPCA  and there are so many animals out there in need of a good, loving home.

If you’re considering getting a pet, check out the RSPCA in your area.

  1. I miss having a dog. I used to have a dog and a cat, but when my dog died we couldn’t get another one because of the cat. I hope to have one again someday and I’ll definitely go to the RSPCA.
