    Likewise.

    I tend to prefer smaller dogs. Breed doesn't really matter.

    I assume mind you not knowing of course that a larger dog would be too big for you to handle on a leash! Probably be walking you!! 😉

    That is really funny to watch though when it appears the dog is working the man or woman it is out with!!! 😉

    when i "walk" my dog i let it roam ( on a leash ) and let her do whatever she wants and let her go where she wants. it is her walk and not mine. she sniffs alot of green stuff and sits on alot of lawns.

    the first "lassie" on tv and films lived to be 16. he ( it was a he )
    was given good food ( not supermarket junk ) and saw a vet on a regular basis. most dogs in the usa live an average of 10 years.
    bad food and only get to the vet when a problem shows up and then it often late in the day for a good cure.

    That is all good.....What I'm talking about is when the dog is on a leash pulling the man or woman supppose to be walking the dog, looks more like the dog walking them, always get a chuckle out of that!!!

    My daughter (a vet) keeps me on track with the dogs's doctoring. You are absolutely right. Best to be proactive than reactive. They are, after all, family.

    I believe training a dog is important so it listens to you and isn't dragging you along on a leash when you are suppose to be the one walking the dog....Some places have laws where you have to have the dog on a leash.

    If I had the extra money I might consider spending hundreds of dollars on a dog. But I am a teacher who does not get paid much and have loads of debt so if a dog dies a dog dies.

    I don't know, but if you can't afford to take care of a dog, why have one?
