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