I read with interest your answer to Ann, the one whose kids gave her a puppy for Christmas. I had the same situation last year. I was missing my husband.
My son gave me a Great Dane puppy. Charles has grown into a huge boy of 187 pounds. He is as gentle as he is big. He is kind and loving. And, like you and your Tony we sleep together.
I used to be on match.com. Not anymore. Charles is a lap dog in the true sense.
I guess from now on I'd better clarify when I say I'm a dog lover.
