I have heard recently that dogs outnumber the amount of kids in San Francisco. Dog walkers in that city are allowed to walk 8 dogs at a time and have a lot of clients. I once read a bumper sticker - "the more people I meet - the more I like my cat." Guess that applies to dogs too. They say dog is man's best friend. Dogs are so loyal to their owners and by the wagging of their tail you can see how appreciative they are for a friendly word or a gentle pat. I don't really approve of having a large dog in an apartment as I think they need a lot of exercise. I have a new cat this year. Her name was Chanel but we call her Mia now. (Mia means meow in Portuguese) She is lots of fun and very sociable and loves to play and eat. Did I say she loves to eat? Seems like she is always eating. We weighed her and she is 13 pounds and only a year and a half old.
