We don't have a dog now.
But I love dogs.
They're so much more friendly than cats, which always seem like they're in a bad mood or going through their menstrual cycle.
My first dog was Ladybug, a Boston Terrier. I was just a little kid, so I don't remember her that well. I seem to recall she was cranky, but it's probably because I teased her.
My second dog was Nicky, a mangy gray poodle. He overlapped with Ladybug for a year or two and I think they got along OK. Nicky had an odd personality, but was a loyal dog.
My third dog was Leonard. He was one of the eight puppies produced by Suzy, the friendly, outgoing neighborhood dog (she would follow us everywhere on our 10-speeds). Leonard was fun. He barked a lot, but that's probably because he spent a good deal of time on a rope attached to the backyard clothesline.
I loved those dogs.
Maybe someday we'll get another dog.
The timing will have to be right.
