Where you and your dog live(d):
Dog story (age, breed, when you got him/her, from where):
3 1/2 yrs. / Bichon Frise / November 2013 / American Puppy Club in Middletown, NJ
Why did you want a dog?
I missed my dog back in Jersey and I love taking care/having a dog at all times. She comforts me and brightens my day!
How has having a dog changed your life?
It made me a more responsible woman and she has been there for me through my worst and best times in NYC. She is like therapy whenever I need more love or a paw to cry on hehe.
How did you deal with having a dog in your twenties, may it be now or previously? What was your daily routine? Any hard times? Unique characteristics about your dog?
It was definitely an extra responsibility on top of my work and school. I needed to be there for her throughout certain parts of the day to make sure she wasn't completely alone. I didn't mind having an extra responsibility because she is the best thing that has happened to me thus far <3. I love her so so much and cannot thank my parents enough for surprising me with her on Thanksgiving. It was hard for me to potty train her, but after that battle there wasn't much more I needed to discipline her with. She is the sweetest girl and gives nothing but endless love. Everybody who meets her wants to take her home with them :D. She is a great listener and an overall perfect pet!
What are some of your favorite things to do with your dog?
I love to take her to the Hudson riverside dog park! She loves to play with other dogs and humans. I also love to walk her around my neighborhood and watch her mingle with other doggies.
