I'm not a dog person. I've never owned a dog. I've got nothing against them and I think most of them are very cute, but I cannot stomach the thought of picking up hot turds in a plastic bag.
My girlfriend's families dog however; she is the most beautiful soul I have ever met. Because I am quite a shallow person, I think the reason I like her so much is because she seems to really like me. I've never had a bond with a dog like this before, but then again, I've never known a dog since it was a 10 week old puppy.
She really is the most lovely, gentle animal. She is a bit scared of a lot of things, but she is also very intelligent and likes cuddles.
