I though I was a “cat” person and never had no interest what so ever in having a dog for a pet. Dog’s are a lot of work, expensive, messy and require work & attention. All that “rational thinking” went out the window when our daughter brought “Gunner” into the family. One month later I figured he needed a friend (no rational thinking still) , so Emmerson came to us. They are lots of work, messy, expensive and need lots of attention. They are the best of friends…most of the time…….I never understood how people treated their dogs like children now I know!
