I love the bond. I love training—how they want to please and work with you. How he protects the birds (without trying to eat the chickens) and protects my cat from being bullied by other cats. I love our doggy play date meet-ups and having company on my long walks through the countryside.
Not surprising that my story has german shepherds in it I guess.
I owned cats before and I like them. But they aren't dogs. I love doggies. Besides, I've a corgi. She is half cat anyway.
Vanilla. You can add almost anything to vanilla ice cream and it tastes yummy. Can't quite do that with chocolate.
And vanilla just because it's much harder to screw up imo. I've had mediocre vanilla but I've had chocolate I wouldn't serve to my worst enemy.
I remember that when I was little and our cat had kittens, at one point I set my spoon-partly-full of vanilla ice cream down next to a kitten who totally was licking as fast as possible. She was tiny, and soon was sort of shivering because of the cold, but it didn't slow her down any.
I gently tried to move the spoon away, and she started this really-meant-to-be-ferocious-but-actually-adorable high pitched growl.
So I gathered her and the spoon up and cuddled her while she ate, and then she fell asleep with a little smug kitty grin and a sticky mustache.
More specifically, munchkins and Guylian (those seashell ones. Good god they're so good!)
Unless we're talking about ice cream flavor, then it's vanilla, and I do like myself a fluffy little corgi.
So I guess I like all the options. Welp.
