We have kids, cats and dogs at our house- so much to keep us busy! The dogs are a Pitt bull (who wouldn't hurt a flea), so smart and playful and a very loyal and beautiful all white Akita. What I love to see is the dogs and cats playing or snuggling together!

Yes, I do and it's my first pet,and His name is Buddy and he's a minature Dashaund,and I don't think he thinks he's a Dog but a person,cuz he is so spoiled .. We feed him sitting up w/ a bib and a spoon that is the only way he will eat!! My Parents started this.

I love all animals! I have two dogs and three horses that live here on my little ranch. Sharing your life with an animal is a lifestyle choice, which is why I believe it is important to list pets, if you own them, in your profile. Having pets may limit my matching options, but that's OK- I would rather date someone who shares my interests than not. My horses are magnificence creatures. My dogs are loyal, trustworthy and kind. There is nothing better than riding through the AZ desert and enjoying God's country!

I don't own a pet right now. However, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE animals. I put my Persian 'kitty boy,' Sebastian to sleep a few months ago and I can't even think of getting a new one yet. (I may never get another pet. The pain of having to let an animal go is too hard).

I've been the care taker (admit it, does anyone truly 'own' a cat?) of a pair of psycho kitties for about 12 years now. They are a blessing & a curse. They are very affectionate, so long as there is food, and seam determined to prove they are more destructive then a two year old or a nuclear bomb.

I'm glad you asked about the question of pets. Is there a way of selecting only those who do not have dogs, cats, or any other pets from the matching process. There doesn't appear to be a question phrased in such a way that only selects matches who do not have pets with those who do not want pets. FYI, I do not love animals enough(didn't grow up with them) to want to date a woman,who has dogs. Reason: Dogs/pets have a way of taking over and intervening during visits/courtship etc and in the case of dogs, slobbering and sniffing and just their approach is aggressive and not conducive to an unfettered courtship..not acceptable to me. I feel I have wasted my money on both Catholic Match as well as Match.com so far, by just "hoping against hope" to find matches who do not have dogs. Even Cats are questionable for reasons which I do not want to get into here. Seriously though, Please modify your software to give this option to me.The Profiles are skewed toward people who either like pets in one form or another or are non commital(no opinion), and as such is inadequate to allow me to find a mate. It seems that every other woman out there has dogs or cats or whatever.

Pets help us keep good mental and therefore physical health so are good for us spiritually if they don't become attachments more important than God.
For those of us who are single, it is a wonderful outlet to have a living source for our caretaking so we remain humane and understanding of how much of a need another might have. Some of us spend so much time on the blue-tooth when we're with our animals that we need to remember to shut the phone off when we're with people since they are in greater mental need. My theory is that if anyone were capable of fostering an Umbrella Cockatoo and/or a rescue dog from a puppy mill without killing either of them or going insane, they would most likely be able to handle a spouse and children plus show a great potential for being able to do social work. Parrots keep mouths clean (as they mimic much of what is said), cats keep bathrooms clean (since the litter has to be done daily which leads then to the bathroom), dogs keep a house or at least the kitchen clean (since they get into things and make messes often enough to require full cleaning of these areas)!

I have a yorkshire terrier poodle mix named Charlie Brown and a cat named Gizmo. Gizmo follows Charlie and I around the neighborhood when we talk our walk. These two precious animals are my family and greet me with warm welcomes when I come through the door. I love my babies....

I live with two toy dogs who can better be described as meat hounds. They're still dogs. They are members of the family, very attached to the people in the house and never tell when you have to discuss your problems with them. They are entertaining and serve as an alarm system. Best of all, they keep me grounded in how nature works.

My dogs consume my life. They are part of my family. For those persons who are non animal lovers-dogs are non judgemental. They do not care if you are ugly or beautiful; tall or short; slim or obese. They are there to offer you love and solace. Dog is God spelled backwards.

I had two Shih Tzus, my male died in May after 15.5 years of happiness and love, I have a female and she has made things easier otherwise this house would be really lonely, we've always had pets, I have pet birds as well, 2 lovebirds, 6 parakeets and one turtle dove, but it's just not the same without a dog in a house.
