    Don’t post this. I just don’t know how to comment to you on this specific post…
    I was scared this post was going to objectify dogs, like- “These are the cutest! So don’t worry about whether your personalities go well together. Just buy them because they are a fad.” You know? Because I see so much of that sh** these days (It was dumb to think PETA would do that though) But this post pointed out their what makes them such good pets and friends while making me laugh at the same time. Bear-Faced Bigalee-Boo 😀 haha. One of the best posts I’ve read. And very important because this is is such an easy action that everyone can take. Even people who aren’t interested in or motivated to give up meat.

    You did forget poodles! For those claiming that they MUST go to a breeder because they need a hypoallergenic dog- look no further then the closest poodle shelter 🙂 They are family dogs all the way. Loyal, friendly, good with kids, come in ALL sizes, and hypoallergenic!
