pixel's the first dog in our family (including me, my sister, and my parents) in over 40 years. we're cat people. we've had sneaky, sheba, mr tibbs and oreo amongst us. and still have maizi, greysie, vegas, cali and beauty. and now there's pixel. a dog. there's a warming up period when they visit. they're not used to the jumping and high energy and sniffing in inappropriate places. but this may turn someone into a dog person. how could it not?
