My Little Buddy

I have always been a cat person.
As long as I can remember, I’ve always had a cat.
Or two, or three, or four.
My mom and my step-mom were both cat lovers.
I love how they’re independent and clean and generally don’t require a lot of care.
The wild cats are so strong and fast.
And they’re all so beautiful.

Somehow, I ended up with a dog.
Barney is a miniature pinscher.
At first I thought he was just an ankle biter who would be a pain to take care of but he became my little buddy.
The best part of having a dog, for me, is how happy he is whenever I get home.
He is the sweetest, most cuddly dog I have ever met.
We are still working on some training issues, but overall, he has learned so much since he joined our family.

Since I take a lot of pictures of my family, I end up taking a lot of pictures of Barney too.
He’s surprisingly photogenic.
I decided to have fun with his pictures and try out a bunch of different filters and effects.

When my little buddy isn’t rocking his hoody, you can often find him near a heater.

I suppose if I could get away with it, I might haunt the heaters when I was cold too.

If there’s nobody around to cuddle with, Barney will cuddle into whatever he can find.
He especially loves the pile of laundry waiting to be folded.

Does he not look like a sweet puppy?

He’s kinda weird sometimes.
See the three legged pose there?
He walks like that whenever it’s cold or wet outside.
I don’t know how many times I have been asked if there’s something wrong with him.
I wondered too at first.  Until I saw that he switches legs.

Sometimes he’s just pathetic.

What kind of dog doesn’t like to ride in the car?

He loves the girls too and hates when they’re gone too long.

He hates being stuck in the house when there are ducks outside…

All in all, I am so happy that this weird, small, shaky dog is a part of our family.
