There is a Bravo TV program called "Showdog Moms and Dads" that has featured a gay couple have two dogs, Daisy and Liberace. Oh brother.
While most of us don't have pets for the sole purpose of championship competition, there are gay brothers who enjoy grooming and training championship show dowgs.
Brandon and Ryan from Seattle do just that. They proudly acknowledge that their dogs are better dressed than most humans. Their pampered pooches get their teeth whitened by a human dentist. But these guys can't seem to share their love of showing their dogs. They are always fighting and seem quite tempermental, even more so than their show dogs could ever be.
That aside, we have our dogs because we need their unconditional love. But they are needing as well. And we fulfill that need admirably. Our dogs need a home, they need to be loved, nutured and led. They earn our trust and we theres. There's this mutual sense of bonding, companionship, nuturing. A dog is a gay man's most reliable companion.
I don't know if any of you brought your dogs into your relationships, acquired them during a relationship, or whatever. What I do know is that you love your dogs very much.
Feel free to share your stories about how you found your dogs, what attracted them to you, how they have changed your lives. WOOOF, WOOOF.
