For my 25th birthday I got the best gift ever, my dog a sweet three month old Pomeranian that I named Baby. At first Baby was nameless because I couldn’t decide what to call her, but since she was so tiny I just kept calling her a little baby and it stuck. I had grown up with a dog but she passed away when I was still young, so I didn’t grow up having one. When I got old enough, I had really wanted a dog. I thought about it for a year before finally committing to having a pet. I had no idea how much of a responsibility it was, how expensive pets could be but also how rewarding and loving they are in return.
Baby has been my buddy for the last almost six years. When I travel I get so excited to come back home to see her, cuddle on the couch and give her belly rubs. Pets are the sweetest thing and she has given me so much unconditional love and joy. My parents adore her and they get so excited when they get to Baby-sit. Even though she can’t read, I wanted to wish my Baby a happy 6th birthday and share some favorite quotes about dogs.
A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.
Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.
The world would be a nicer place if everyone had the ability to love as unconditionally as a dog
The only creatures that are evolved enough to convey pure love are dogs and infants
Happiness is a warm puppy
Such short little lives our pets have to spend with us, and they spend most of it waiting for us to come home each day
It is amazing how much love and laughter they bring into our lives and even how much closer we become with each other because of them
