My dogs are a huge part of my life. As an elderly person, they are much like my own children (who are grown and have their own families now). I have some photos of them making retrieves that I really cherish and enjoy. I will not make a habit of posting shots of them retrieving, but I wlll post some every once in awhile. Again, I do not mean to offend anyone.
I respect what you say and totally agree about dogs - our dog is our life we have no children or family so our dog is the life and soul of us, we teach our dog to get on with all other animals as well as we can from birds in the trees to cats and even small animals, also other dogs we like to keep her sociable around other dogs when we are out.
I have even had a rabbit as a pet and loved him, also a pet gerbal I respect and honour wolves and raptors (I love there spirit) but dont like what they do killing small animals.
I even respect house spiders I wont kill them just put them outdoors, the only animal that I really cant stand but wouldnt hurt is snakes, I cant even bare to look at them.
