Forget Coke vs. Pepsi. Star Wars vs. Star Trek. Or even iPhone vs. Android.
To me, the biggest debate of all time is Cats vs. Dogs.
While I’m a big animal lover all around, I have always been a dog person. Let’s face it, cats are… well, kind of jerks.
Dogs? Dogs on the other hand may not be as smart as felines, but they are so much more loyal. I mean, they aren’t called Man’s Best Friend for nothing.
I had a Shih-Tzu named Muffin growing up and he most definitely was my best friend. He was by my side every time I was sick. He was there in an instant to grab my socks the second I took them off. And he invariably plopped himself smack down on top of the newspaper I was reading on Sunday mornings, as I tried to catch up on the week’s comics.
My wife and I have been wanting a dog for years and seeing as how I’m working from home and the boys are at school remotely for most of the time, we decided to go for it.
Meet Ace, the Miniature Schnauzer who’s already tunneled his way into our hearts.
We’ve had the little monster for just one month but I already can’t imagine life without him. For such a little guy (currently he weighs just 5 pounds), this puppy has a mammoth personality.
Ace is constantly cracking me up. He’s like a mini goat the way he literally hops around the room chasing after tennis balls or his favorite toy, his stuffed Lambchop.
He’s fascinated with everything we do, making it difficult at times to actually get some work done. Luckily, he also sleeps a lot, so things like “writing blog posts” can actually get done.
Ace has already grown so much from our point of view. I think he’s practically doubled in size. Yet to everyone else, he must still seem so tiny.
At this point in time, the world needs a belly rub.
So consider this fair warning…. expect this blog to be chock full of puppy love for the foreseeable future.
Raise your paw if you love dogs!
