What do you love about you dog? Or if you don't have a dog, what do you love about your favorite breed? Do you have any traditions or special things you do with your dog? My dog is a two year old Yorkie named Chigger. I love him. No man will ever be as loyal and devoted to me as he is. People can be trusted to an extent, but I can trust Chigger all the way. For the rest of his life he will sleep at the foot of my bed every night. He will hurry outside every morning to check the house for any signs of intrusion. He will walk me to the door and say goodbye as I leave for school. And he will be there to say hello when I get home. He will be there to lick my wounds and put a smile on my face and for that I love him. I love the way he looks at me when other people are talking to him. I love the way he licks my toes while I'm reading. I love the face he makes when I scratch his belly. I love the sound of his little nails clacking on the wood floor as he greets me. I love the feel of his fur after he takes a bath. I love the little sound he makes when he plays dead. I love how his ears perk up when I talk to him. I love how he gets all excited when he sees his leash. And I love knowing that he's going to be there for even if no one else will.

My dog is getting old, and honestly, I really don't know how to deal with it. I can't bear the thought of losing him, he's really been my best friend. Although he always lick my bed and my slippers, he never fails to cheer me up and always would want to play with me. Actually, I'm stopping this conversation right now, because my chest is aching and I feel like I'm about to cry..............

I love him when he waits for me outside the bathroom just lying down. He defends me when my brother act like attacking me. He cries whenever I left him outside the room.

I love my dog for it welcomes me with a happy thoughts specially when I'm coming home and he stands there in the gate entrance just to welcome me and saying that he is happy that I'm home safe then in regards to that I just touches his furs and head to let him know that i was thankful and that he is important too.

I love my dog so happy as sad as it were by my side, but it does not understand what I said but it is also somewhat sympathetic to me. I love dogs.

We love all our pets, they are members of our family. They are loyal, always happy to greet us, there when we need comforting and very protective.

I love the dogs persistence. They follow you around even if you don't feed them, they are playful even when you are not in the mood it still makes you play, they poop around town, peeing in places, destroy the couch, destroy the garden, dig holes, and they bite. You will become their master if they knew you were feeding them, that is really cool.
