No-dogs are a special gift from God!Now if we were talking about cats.........
I believe a house isn't a home unless you have a dog!!!
I'm more of a cat person myself - easier to take care of - but I've had dogs and have "grand dog." As long as dogs (or any pets) are owned by someone who loves them and takes good care of them there aren't too many. But the number of abandoned and mistreated pets is horrible so please be responsible pet owners. Get your pets fixed and keep them on leashes or secure in your home or yard for their safety and the safety of children and our carriers. And nothing annoys me more than a person who gets a big dog for "protection" or too be macho, then they lock the dog in a kennel in the yard year-round and never let them out to run and exercise. Pets need be appropriate for the family and home that they will live in.
I personally own 10 dogs and 4 cats. So I think a person can figure out how I feel. Because of that, I could usually handle the dogs on my route. I feel that dogs know when you are a 'dog' person and treat you accordingly.
I run a private animal (mostly dogs) shelter in my *spare time* (after working a 6-day week as a PTF Clerk I put in as many hours w/my rescue! Ha! Spare time?) But I digress....Many of the mail carriers and rural route drivers in adjacent towns call me re on their rounds when they see lost/stray/injured pets and, on the whole, the USPS employees in our area are very dog savvy and caring...and help reunite lost animals.I'm grateful for their support and help...and so is our Communities!
I think you can have as many dogs as you want as long as you can take care of them and give them the attention they deserve. Dogs that don't get enough attention are the ones that when they get loose are more likely to attack people that come on the property.
