  41. I love to cuddle with my dogs,take them for walks,play all kinds of games & just be with them. If I had to pick just one it would be how our Shih Tzu/Toy Poodle Clairrie(she is only a puppy & had been severely abused,neglected & crated for 8+ hours a day) who we rescued the day she was going to be sent to a high kill shelter snuggles in bed with me every night sleeping in the middle like a baby usually with her head on my pillow. This shows me that dogs have so much unconditional love that they can overcome so much when they are shown love & kindness. Clairrie is my angel!!
