I’m not a dog person. I have always liked cats a lot more. In fact, I am convinced that dogs go out of their way to irritate me. Case in point: a 6 week old puppy took one look at me, growled, ran just over a metre to where I was standing, bit my big toe, and then ran away. I was convinced that I was just not made to have dogs like me, or for me to like them back.
But, my husband is the complete opposite. He absolutely adores dogs. At the end of 2010 I eventually caved, and we went to DARG (a local animal rescue organisation) and came home with a puppy for him.
Since then, this little furball has managed to wiggle his way into my heart too. But really, take a look at his handsome face – how can you not love him???
