A dog is a dog
I love dogs; this fact I am sure of. How many times have I heard; "this is the best breed?" "Mutts are the best." Dogs are the best; plain and simple, I love them all. I love the tiny pocket pooches all the way up to the mondo Great Danes and Irish Wolfhounds. I love the feisty Irish Terriers; the wiry mix breed mid-sized dogs, the ones with the scruffy face. I call these guys the Disney dogs; and there are alot that fit the bill. I love the Bulldogs that wiggle when they walk; there isn't a more expressive dog. I love the short coated, fluffy coated, wire coated and half and half coated mixes.
That's it; I love them all. Sure there have been a few dogs in my training and photography career that surely have not liked me; and for those it's been a little tougher to love. But it's not me that is important; it is their guardian, that is who they need to love and be connected to. I love nothing more than seeing a dog gazing into their owners eyes and their owner gazing back. A true canine connection is amazing; and once you've had one you know what all this dog fuss is about.
