(Intro Note: I don't have a dog at the present moment. But looking back, we have had one when I was young in the Philippines. I'm thinking or considering to have one. Now, this morning, while in the restroom, with a copy of the latest National Geographic magazine (which I've been an avid reader-subscriber for years) and perusing it, I thought of writing something about dogs. Photos in my blog post are from National Geographic. No copyright infringement intended. Thank you. :)

    1. Wow, it's been two years ago and I'm still "dogless," Son! I've been fascinated by dogs I've come across lately, while doing my short walks around the neighborhood. In fact, I've taken photos of a number of them that their owners have given me the go signal to photograph these lovely creatures. We'll see...I haven't decided yet whether to have one. You know, it's a responsibility to have one, too, because you have to treat him/her as one of your family members. We'll see...

    2. Finally, I got one 11 weeks-old "chorkie" puppy, after 3 years since I wrote the above blog post. See my latest article/blog dated June 30, 2015, "A new puppy in the house," which appeared in Suffolk News Herald's Opinion page, June 30, 2015..
