Owning a dog is like having the world's weirdest roommate. They take up all kinds of space in your home, leave their stuff everywhere and demand attention when you are busy. The difference is, having a dog is like having a little love machine that you can go to whenever you most need it.
The only downside is that because they love you SO much, sometimes they don't know when they are getting a little bit too close for comfort. The 16 dogs have the best intentions, but perhaps should just back off a little bit.
