My dogs are a huge priority in my life. Gone are the days when I would date someone allergic to dogs, or a man who treats dogs as animals that need to be subservient to his demands. My heart seems to only open up to men who really cherish the human animal bond. It’s a deal breaker when a man tells me that I should be comfortable treating my dogs one way, when I feel another. And, I’m not crazy about being teased because it’s hard for me to leave them when I go out of town. Don’t get me wrong, I take trips without Sanchez and Gina and leave them in very good care, but it’s still always hard for me to say good-bye, even if it’s only for a weekend.
With Valentine’s Day approaching, love is in the air, or at least Hallmark tells us it is. Even though I’ll be celebrating with my four-legged sweeties, there is always much to learn from them. And I’m sure they’ll remind me that the right man is capable of loving me and them, it’s not one or the other.
