I've got a serious case of Dog Love. It's almost a sickness, this deep and abiding love I feel for canines in general, and for one in particular.
I always feel better if there's a dog around. When I go anywhere and a dog is present, I feel more at ease, happier. It's like a drug, this feeling dogs give me, and I'm addicted.
I've always liked dogs, and had even loved a few - then, 6 years ago, Cooper came into my world, a 3 lb, 8 week old bundle of puppy boy little dog baby darling mine. I was determined to be a good dog mom, to do what was best, to do it "right'...and in the process, I fell in love. Fell hard, and deep, and forever.
In many ways, he is my best friend, this most faithful, constant, and loyal companion. I can look into thse eyes and feel my breathing slow, my muscles relax, my heart open. These are not mere words - this happens. I have found my canine soulmate, and as a result, my life will never be the same. It is - and will always be - better, and more, than it was before: richer, deeper, more meaningful, more.

Dogs are not our whole lives,
but they make our lives whole.
