Answer by Karen Tiede:
I don't want a man who feels the same way I do about some major parts of life. If he felt the same way I do about cooking, we'd either starve, or eat straight out of bags. If he felt the same way I do about socializing, we'd never go anywhere.
So: the trick is to figure out exactly where you need a man to match, and where "close enough is close enough." Now, if the #1 characteristic is truly that he love your dogs the way you do, you CAN find someone, but you have to do a national search.
What if he has rotties, or greyhounds, or some other dog? Or cats, or a parrot? Do you really want a guy who currently has no dogs and can't live without a Chi family, and can't figure out how to create one himself?
Personally, I've always favored GIB; not sufficient, however. I have a list; when I'm dating (which I haven't been for a while), I work the list.
Make your list. "Loving Chis" should be one of the characteristics. It simply shouldn't be the only one.
What's some good dating advice for a dog lover?
Answer by Richard Barrios:
I think Native Americans sum it up the best in this story that I really love.
The earth trembled and a great rift appeared, separating the first man and woman from the rest of the animal kingdom. As the chasm grew deeper and wider, all the other creatures, afraid for their lives, returned to the forest — except for the dog, who after much consideration leapt the perilous rift to stay with the humans on the other side. His love for humanity was greater than his bond to other creatures, he explained, and he willingly forfeited his place in paradise to prove it……Native American folktale…an Ojibway tale

Humans sometimes share a unexplainable bond with dogs. Dogs seem to understand us better then most humans and sometimes better then our closest human friends. Whether its their sense of smell, heightened primal awareness or just in their DNA. Whatever it is, I really don't care if it ever can be explained, its just wonderful that it's real.
On a personal note. I seen my Dad cry only a handful of times in my life. One was when our dog passed away at my dad's feet.
Why do most people like dogs?
For humans, it is imperative to find the right balance of the necessary vitamins and minerals in your diet. A vitamin deficiency can cause several health problems. Likewise, too much of any one vitamin can cause other problems. The same holds true for your dog. A vitamin deficiency or excess can cause skin, coat, muscle and bone problems, as well as many other issues. Some of the most important vitamins that your dog can get in his diet are from the B family. But, which B vitamins are necessary for great canine health?
The B Vitamin Family
The B-complex vitamins are water-soluble and are constantly being flushed from your dog’s system. As a result, it is very important that your dog replenishes the levels of B vitamins in his body. Vitamins B-1, B-2, B-3, B-5, B-6 and B-12 are necessary for skin, coat, muscle and bone health. Signs that your dog may be dealing with a B-complex deficiency can include lack of appetite, lethargy, and unexplained weight loss. Other signs of a B vitamin deficiency are hair loss, skin flaking and peeling, diarrhoea or constipation, increased thirst, and excessive urination.
The most reliable way to ensure that your best friend gets the right balance of vitamins and nutrients in his diet is to feed a high quality food each day and avoid table scraps and human food. You should also choose a dietary supplement that provides the right combination of vitamins and minerals to keep your dog healthy. One of the best supplements on the market is NuVet Plus.
