“My husband and I are usually out and about and traveling, but Norman has caused us to be home and slow down.

We have spent every weekend at home and now have a greater appreciation for the city.

We take long walks through the park and spend more time at the dog run, because Norman loves it.”

They get along great, but Norman can be annoying because he wants to play more than she does (she’s 11), he gets the message most of the time and backs off.

We’ve had Norman four month and he’s such a ball of energy.

He’s funny; he’s that goofy puppy that makes everyone laugh.

He’s got long legs that he will hopefully, grow into, but right now he’s very uncoordinated and constantly tripping over his own legs.”

“I fell in love with his ears and smile.

He was being fostered by a couple on the upper east side and we met up an adoption event at Petco.

We brought our dog Hannah with us to see how they would get along.

Norman rolled over and was submissive towards Hanna, so we thought it was a good match.”

“I am really busy with school as is my girlfriend.

We are also busy with work, and sometimes it’s difficult to take care of them.

We often discuss which one of us will do the last walk at night because we are both tired and want to go to sleep.

It’s always me, but she does the morning walk, so it all works out.”

“Dima always looks like he’s smiling and it makes me want to grin too.

Anubis loves everybody and was excited to make a new friend when we brought Dima home.

Dima takes time to warm up to people and it took him time to get used to living with Anubis.

Now, they love each other and he even lets Anubis in his crate.

He knows Anubis always wants to be near someone.

They are best friends.”

“I looked at the same place in the Amish Country, where we got Anubis, Greenfield Puppies, because it is not a puppy mill and their dogs turn out well.

Dima is what’s called a Pomsky; a Pomeranian Husky mix.

When I saw him, he stood out to me.

He looked like he was smiling in the photograph, and he has one blue eye and one brown eye.

When I when to Greenfield Puppies, it was just the way I hoped it would be.”

“It can be fatal if not treated, or a dog doesn’t respond to steroids.

Zimmy was on steroids for an entire year.

That was seven years ago and he is still here.

I am a divorced middle aged guy and Zimmy has been my best friend.”

“He had crazy looking ears and a great soul.

I got him on June 1st, and I call that summer, my summer of Zimmy, because I was off from work and spent every day with him.

We went to the beach, hiked mountains or had some sort of daily adventure.

When I got him, he was about a year old.

He has been the love of my life for the past nine years.”

“Every time I went in, I visited the dogs, as I had dogs on the brain.

In fact, I had already picked out a name.

I was writing a book at the time and one of the chapters was on Bob Dylan, so I knew I wanted to call the dog, Zimmerman.

The third time there, I passed two huge German Shepherds, and in the same cage was a small Shepherd mix cowering in the corner.

I told the worker that I wanted to see that dog, and within two minutes, he was my dog.”

“I was living in Los Angeles and bought a beautiful old gem of a house that had a doggy door leading to a backyard.

As soon as I saw the doggy door I started thinking it was time to get a dog.

Before I could act on it, a stray cat had a litter of eight kittens in my backyard.

I called the local rescue shelter and they told me people don’t adopt feral kittens, so I should trap them, get them neutered and re-release them into the neighborhood.

As a result, I was going to the shelter once a week, and looking at dogs up for adoption.”
