I'm definitely a huge dog person. I had a german shepherd/husky mix when i was a kid, then a great dane (Rex), and now I have a retriever/lab/collie/bloodhound mix (Molly).
Honestly, I don't think I could be happy without a dog around. They're always happy to see you, the smallest amount of affection from you makes their day, and they always seem to know when you're having a rough day, and know how to make you feel better.
Unfortunately, all my pictures of Shadow are printed photos from an analog camera, and I don't have a scanner available to upload them.
