Human: A Dog's Favorite Pet

Confession: Having had a few bad experiences with dogs as a kid...for the longest time, I wasn't a fan. That didn't change when we first got Kittie. She was a weird little thing - followed me everywhere, was afraid of everything, and peed non-stop.

One day, I looked down at her, sighed, and didn't understand why she was in my life.

In my head popped the idea of her not being in my life.
My knees went out from under me; I landed on the floor and couldn't even breathe.

Kittie nudged me with her nose - cold, wet, slimy, and covered in dirt. I just laughed.

The feeling that took over me is something that is completely ineffable. I don't believe in love, but I know I love this girl.

I wouldn't give her up for all the money, fame, fortune, and whatever else you think you've got that's better than what I have. It isn't.

Behind every truly amazing person, there is a dog. This dog is not just a household accessory, but a family member who motivate, drives, and humbles us.

Yeah, I owe it all to the dog.


  1. What a touching story! They sure do get into our hearts, don't they?

    I was terrified of dogs when I was little, because I got bitten by one. (not too hard but it did scare the living daylights out of me) When I saw a dog I'd climb furniture, trees or people ... whatever was within reach.

    Over time I got over it and got to LIKE dogs (at least most of them). Having one in my own house, well that was a different story...

    Now I feel honored to be allowed to live in Jasmine's house O_o

  2. I know how you feel! I have a hard time bonding with things - people, dogs, kitties, whatever.
    I didn't even realize that I loved this amazing little girl for a long time. I just didn't get it.
    It took the thought of her no longer being around to get it through my head.
    I'm glad she came into my life. I hate who I was before I met her. Now, I'm pretty cool ;]

    I was pretty terrified of most dogs, too. (I didn't mind ours, but I never bonded with them because my parents had a nasty habit of deciding they didn't want them anymore.)

    I'm glad you have Jasmine. =] She's a pretty cool little woof, and she's lucky to have you!
