I love dogs. I grew up with them, several of them at a time and I have always loved them. When I was living in North Carolina I spent my weekends volunteering at an animal rescue. Pretty soon I started fostering dogs which was sad but also incredibly rewarding. I do have a little monster of my own. He's the namesake for half of this blog, I call him my little bear. It's not true for everyone, but for me, having a dog is one of the most rewarding things in the world. I don't recommend owning one to every college student, in fact I don't recommend it for most. Bust for me, having my little bear has always kept me grounded, it gives me responsibility and of course some good old fashioned unconditional love. Now, lest you think I come down whole heartedly on the side of the canines, you should know I've got two very spoiled felines as well.
How bout you guys, did you have pets during college or do you now? Are you a cat or a dog person? Or maybe something else entirely. I'd love to know.
