I wouldn’t call myself an enthusiastic cook. For the most part, my love for cooking is directly proportional to my love of not dying from hunger. Once in a while, though, when the cooking fairies find their way to me, I make an elaborate show of whipping up one special dish or another.

Dogs are fiercely loyal and intelligent animals that have been man’s companions for several decades. Their presence in the lives of many people has made them stronger, healthier, and more responsible. For many dog parents, there are very few pleasures on earth like owning and caring for a dog.

Everyone one of us has certainly gone through this one. Remember when you had to deliver a speech at your aunt’s friend’s cousin’s party and you kept putting it off because every time you sat to write, nothing… happened.
