My Dog Sam
Dear Abby, I too was picked on when I was a child and I too turned to our dog Queenie. She always gave me love and she always listened. Bless you.
I'm new around here and I'm not sure if this has been asked previously, but what are your oppinions on real vs. fake trees?
I personally love the memory of having a live tree in the house with the scente of pine everywhere. I've been living in an apartment for the past 3 years that doesn't allow live trees due to allergies and I miss it so much. But the hassle of pine needles and watering has been avoided for 3 years so I guess there's pros and cons to everything!
I'm in the fake camp, only because I was allergic when I was little!!
That said, I would defy you to say our tree looked fake. It's only when you realise there isn't the same pine smell (which, let's face it, can be achieved with toilet cleaner if need be) and no pine needles on the floor (although I do still seem to vacuum up a lot of plastic needles!) you look a bit closer.
All the trees we put up are fake.......
We have two dogs and three cats......
Need i say more?
We still have to pull the cats out every now and again....
