How long have you been a dog lover?
I have been IN LOVE with dogs since I was a child. My parents were always cat people, so it took some time convincing them to get me my first pup. I was around 6 years old when I fell in love with my first cocker spaniel, Snoopy. Ever since then, I have always had dogs in my life.
