“Dogs are simple beings and help gain perspective on life.

Anchoas helps me appreciate some of the less complicated aspects of life.

When I come home, after being on the road, I feel a sense of endearment and comfort that I don’t get from my co-workers.

I feel completely relaxed to see my girlfriend and Ancho.”

“We had more than one dog, so they were part of a pack and had each other, whereas Anchoas is alone.

My girlfriend and I are his pack.

My dogs growing up where raised by my family.

Anchoas is my first puppy as an adult.

Being on the road can be stressful, and my girlfriend loves sharing anything the puppy is doing, which is a nice reminder that I have something re-energizing to come home to.”

“One of the hardest times was when my job was getting out of control with the hours.

I would get up, go to work, come home and go directly to bed.

During that time, even when I was going straight to bed, I still had the comfort of the dogs between the time I went to bed and fell asleep.

My relationship with my girlfriend has always included the dogs.

They are so funny and expressive and bring a strong feeling of family to our relationship.

Having dogs has been a strong connector.

We have parental roles (I am more of a disciplinarian), but neither of us are very good at disciplining them.

They don’t need much correcting.

When I open the door and 3 dogs rush at me and want affection it’s pure joy.”
