other people's dogs can be fun. To own one is too much work. I will have a child before I have a dog.Originally posted by: theprodigalrebel
I have a few stray cats that have set up base on our property. We feed them, take care of them and play with them but they are strictly outdoors cats. I had a few pets (indoors-only) but I get too attached to them and they keep dying on me.
I like other people's dogs. A good friend (with a nice big yard) has this beautiful Lab. He's this big, awesome critter. Never makes much noise, never makes a mess, actually likes meeting strangers and getting acquainted...simply the most laidback and relaxed dog that I've ever seen (he's almost like a cat). Probably takes after his master (lazy, easy going guy eerily reminiscent of 'The Dude').
He enjoys spending time on his own but is ever willing to snuggle up next to you and fall asleep with his head in your lap. I like that temperament. He seems to like me an awful lot although I only hang out at his place once a month.
I'd like to have both, actually.
