Dexter is the kind of dog I fall in love with the minute I lay eyes on him...meaning he's a pit bull. I LOVE pit bulls. He happens to be pint sized and super snuggly which only helps his chances of me falling for him. Ollie will forever have my heart, but when I see a new pit bull at the shelter, I want them, immediately. Lately, it seems I'm falling in love with some new little snuggle buddy almost every weekend. This makes me sad. People aren't giving up their dogs, they are giving up pit bulls and many of them end up hanging at the shelter for the long haul. I'm hoping Dexter gets adopted soon, but I wouldn't be upset if he was there next weekend...for my own selfish reasons.
I'm not particularly fond of birds (they could potentially peck my eyes out), or spiders (they have too many legs), or ferrets (they stink)...but most fuzzy, furry, four legged animals are pretty awesome. I own a dog named Ollie and two cats named Luigi and Sofia. My cats are going to be four this spring and Ollie will be two this summer. They keep me on my toes and sometimes flat on my face, but I love them. I volunteer at a local shelter and want to keep a blog of my experience with animals in my house and in the shelter. Enjoy!
