I'm a proud owner of two dogs — Rachel & Cory. Rachel's a shih-tzu terrier mix, and I got her as a gift from my parents in Dec 2001. As for her name, that was not my idea lol. The poor dear is getting old now, but in her heyday, she was a bright and boisterous playmate — a quick learner, an affectionate companion and sensitive to my moods.
Cory is a white toy poodle that a family friend rescued and my family came to adopt him. He's a playfully feisty little fella but I love him to bits as he often surprises me with his tenderness & affection. :)
I love puppies, especially when they're about 2-3 months old, as that is the best time to bond with them and everything since is new to them at that stage, it is very fun to teach them new things then. If I could bring home every puppy I had ever bonded and fallen in love with, my home would be an animal shelter haha
