Incorporating GSDs (and other K9 members) into your poersonal life..
Not sure where this actually falls under so if it needs to be moved, no worries.
I started thinking about some things since I have gotten my babies and thought it might turn into a pretty interesting thread..
I was thinking about it the other day, my GSD is like my child. And I love him as such. My social life (as far as going out often to pubs, clubs, etc.) has changed dramatically. As well as the type of people I started hanging out with. I got away from the crazy party scene, if you will, and hung out with a lot more grounded people, who also loved their animals. Also, I am single and pretty much have been since I bought my GSD in 2010 when I was stationed in Germany. Of course I have had a few short term things here and there but nothing of importance really.. when I did date.. if they didn't like dogs.. it was a deal breaker. I now have a GSD and a growing Boerboel pup and it's become even more important to me that the friends I have the people I date, have a love, if not at least a like, for dogs, especially because they are a huge part of my life.
Just curious on peoples thought when it comes to your babies and your personal lives.. has it changed much, is it the same, etc... you get the idea.
