A dog is not a toy, and not a thing to use and discard. But having a dog does not make you a "dog parent" and that dog your "child." Rather, like all of God's creation, a dog is to be treated with respect.
after the Fur Parents' workout, it was time for the pups. Went to the Rancho San Rafael Dog Park bright && early && was pleased to see dozens of dogs already there. So happy && blessed that BOTH our dogs play well with others && make friends so easily.
