OK, this is going to be completely pointless but I had to share. I'm a very big dog person. I mean huge. I owe my sanity and life to a Golden Retriever named Luke, as far as I'm concerned. He was ALWAYS there for me. The best therapy in the world. As a result, I'm a little bit dog crazy. lol. Life without dogs is a depressing life for me. Knowing this, you'll understand my sheer and utter happiness at this past three day weekend...
Sunday was 4th of July as I'm sure you're all aware of.
The parade in town was awesome. Lots of pet owners showed off their family members. There was a good number of horses and dogs. (I took pics if anyone's interested!
They came out so-so as I forgot to borrow the better camera.) I got to see a lot of awesome dogs as a result of the parade. Doggy people came out in force. It was GREAT! I saw Poms, Danes, Cattle Dogs, Aussies, Pugs, Retrievers, English Sheepdogs, etc.
After the parade, I got to meet a Great Dane. Now you have to understand, I have loved Danes since I was about 5 (I saw The Ugly Dachsund and fell in love with the breed.) But I have NEVER seen one up close! NEVER! But I got to meet this handsome blue Dane after the parade. Oh he was gorgeous. And I was ecstatic. One day I hope to be able to afford one of these great gentle giants. *gush*
Then Monday, more dogs. People were all over town walking them. On the way home I saw a woman walking an enormous Mastiff. I had to stop and stare. She must have seen me admiring her big pooch, because she crossed then and made a line straight for me. I asked if I could say hi to her boy and she was happy to introduce him. He turned out to be an English Mastiff. Another breed I have NEVER seen up close. Oh he was gorgeous, and so sweet. He was aptly named Titan. How perfect is that?!
I warned Chris that one of these days we were getting a Mastiff-type dog. He said he was fine with that as long as feeding it was up to me.
Dogs have always had a positive impact on my life, so I am just tickled pink when I get to meet a new dog.
