Dogs for cat people

Simon loves dogs. He is totally enamored with them, and the bigger the better. I, however, don't care that much for dogs, especially the big ones. But of course, after dating Cath for the better part of a year, I also became quite attached to a certain Boston Terrier, and now I'm giddy anytime I see one.

So we're not really dog people. We have four cats, and mine has been with me for 14 years. Diana even has a cat tattoo. What can I say, we're very much cat people. It's how we roll. This doesn't mean we'll never have any dogs, but I can assure you that it won't happen any time soon. I firmly believe that at least two of them need to croak first. Even then, I would prefer to wait until we have a bigger house. We're many years from that situation.

Diana worries about the farting and snorting and what not with Bostons, which is a valid concern. I always thought it was kind of charming. Any dog requires a certain amount of lifestyle adaptation, because they need to walk every day and such. Someday...

Pets have been a huge part of my life since I was a toddler although I am definitely a "cat" person. Getting another dog would be nice but like you I would rather wait until I have more room. Until then it's just me and my two kitties.

I got my first tat when I was 20, which is a little black cat. Those are my favorite type of tattoos. :)Your wife has great taste!
