I have regularly been an critter lover, however oftentimes, I even remember the timeline of particular events based on what pet I had at the time, but for example, I remember that our child went skiing for the first time when she was older than various because I remember the two of us put her ski hat on our golden retriever for a photo.
The people I was with and I got him when she was about ten, so she must have been older than various when she took her first ski trip.
Our golden retriever was a actually fun pet, & our child & I were especially close while in the time the two of us raised him from puppyhood to adulthood. The people I was with and I worked together to train him to do all sorts of things, & the two of us often took him with us when the two of us made the decision to go locales. Plus, our golden had a lot of funny behaviors. One thing I actually thought was funny was her desire to sizzling the air conditioning. The people I was with and I had air vents in the floor at that time! Many people have their air vents up near or in the ceiling, however ours were in the floors. The golden used to like to follow our child & I around from room to room, but if the two of us got up & looked like the two of us were going to a strange room, she would look at us, put her ears up, & run into the other room & suddenly lay right next to the air conditioning vent! She wanted to share her space with us, however not the cool breeze of air conditioning. The people I was with and I thought it was so cute the way she became an hog, & to be totally fair, golden retrievers actually do have a lot of hair.
