This post, is not a wild find but a discovery about myself. The person who used to shiver when a dog would walk past me. And now I want a dog as a companion. The same girl ‘me’ who used to be extremely scared of dogs. I’m starting to see dogs in a whole new world, these days. I don’t see them in that four-legged-figure I used to see earlier. I see them differently. I see them as a friend, and not just that – I’m started to get past my fears. I’ve suddenly seemed to love them. For a playmate, companion, friend, and most of them all: family member.
Dogs can be your best friends. Your family member. Your best friend forever. Dogs will love you the way you are, they will not mind how you look, what you do. I’m really wanting a good friend these days, and I think if i’ll get a dog i’ll be really happy. Dogs are loyal, they support you when your down, they are a perfect companion.
“A person may not know how to love a dog, but every dog knows how to love a person.”
These days i’m obsessed with learning about dogs. Every night, when I go to sleep, I imagine my dog licking me. I’m playing with my dog, “good girl!”, I’m teaching him/her tricks. It’s one of those times for me, when you get a sudden interest in something, and you can’t stop thinking about it.
I’ve been reading about dogs a lot recently, so I wanted to share it with you: I’ll be sharing my favorite dog breeds, owing a dog, what to keep in mind, dog trades, solving dog problems, why does a dog do that answers, bringing home a puppy, how to stop your dog from doing something, which breed is the best for you, and dog website links, and – well, much more! There’s so much to share. Oh and, if you’re about to bring home a dog – well done! You clicked on the right link. You’ll get to know a lot of info. This will be my wild discovery of the week!

Also – it’s tail touches it’s back, so that’s also one of the ways you can recognize this pretty dog.

Sumit Moghe, a blogger shares his beautiful heart warming story of his Labrador Retriever. His times with his dog along with wonderful pictures, and his death. It’s a beautiful short story. I could see my eyes swell up as I read it—it’s a must read. I had to blink my eyes before I could go on to anything else after reading his post.
So, those were my Favorite Breeds! I hope you found it helpful. All the information was from this website called AKC(American Kennel Club). Guys, I mean, this is just a dog lovers website. From breeds comparison, to you vs breed, information of about 50 – 60 breeds – each breed has it’s own page, information, pictures, where it originated, and it’s just never ending. You’ve just got to check it out! I’ve been surfing through this site continuously – day and night!
I hope you found the information helpful. My part 2 will show more breeds, more information, and much much more. They’ll be a full series! In my part 3 I’ll be sharing ‘why does my dog do that”?” answers, how to potty train a puppy, how to make him sit and stay, how to stop it from biting, and much much more. See you in the next part – part 2!
You know when you write about something that you really like? Like this topic—dogs was for me. I love it so much, I didn’t mind writing a whole series – a 2000 word post—nothing. You can just keep writing, and writing, and writing.
I love dogs. How about you?
Do you have any dogs? If yes, which breed?
I am really planning to take a dog when about 2 years. I can imagine it cuddling in my lap right now, licking me. I get the feeling that there’s a little American Eskimo puppy out there, waiting for me to pick him up. I love you doggie, I’ll have you someday.
