Hunter is my pal ! I take him almost everywhere I go ! We have a great loving relationship. Except sometimes when he goes off on a bark-a-thon ! But that's not all the time. Hounds can bark like no other !

My dogs are family. They are spoiled, but mind their manners. At least they usually do. Though Skully is still learning his. He is a rescue and didn't have alot of training before i got him. I tend to take better care of them than myself.

Is Skully named after one of the X-Files characters?

No, a bar. lol When I got a text about a dog named Sully needing a home, my husband who was wearing a Skully's Bar t-shirt thought I said Skully. So it stuck.

Having been abused (other than sexually) as a child, I am a true pushover for anything that represents true innocence.

Infants and young children fall into that category obviously, but dogs specifically for me are a close second.

I admit---shamelessly but reluctantly---to having supreme difficulty in denying our dogs anything (unless it's something harmful to them). 

Fortunately, my wife is a more balanced individual with regard to them.

With my present dog?

She is queen of the house and spoiled rotten. I worry a lot about her as she is too small and not the brightest dog I have ever had.

Still, my relationship with my dog is one of unending loyalty and love. Her company is the company I want most of the time and our relationship, as with all of my dogs, is to the death.

My cat is my sidekick. We've been through a lot together.

My dog passed away recently. One thing I missed most was going outside with her and sitting around my porch. I would read and my dog would lay around near my feet. Her absence was so pronounced that I could not go out and sit on my porch. About 6 weeks ago I went to my back door and sighed because I just wanted to go but my heart felt sad. I looked down and there was my indoor only cat. I opened the door curious as to what she'd do. I went out and she followed. We walked up the driveway in the same way that I used to with my dog. I got scared and hurried back into the house. My fear was that she'd take off. The next day we went through the same thing but got to the table. She promptly plopped over on her side where my dog would lay. We sat out there for an hour. Six weeks later we hang out on my porch just like my dog and I did. I can not explain this phenomenon, but I am amazed. Before this she had never spent any time outside in the back yard. She's filling a void, I am comforted and baffled.

I don't live with my dog anymore but she is very close with me and when i visit my parents, she goes mad when i walk thru the door. She misses me like crazy when i'm gone. (i do feel bad that i only see her on the weekends, i take her for walks when i do). 

im gunna be very upset and sad when she passes away in the future. i've never been close to any dog like i have with her. (i've always had dogs growing up but there is something really special to me about this dog)

Ahh, our two cats. Almond Coconut is the loving friend. Rumplestiltskin struts around the apartment like he owns the place with my wife and I as his personal servants. King Rumple.

To all my pet, I treat them as one of my family members. I make it to the point to have a an instant moment with them. I make sure that whatever they may have taken or eaten is good for their health.
