12 Reasons I'm A Dog Lover

I don't mind cats, but I've always been partial to dogs.

12 Reasons I'm  A Dog Lover
Lisa Gainsboro

1. My dog always greets me.

Whether it has been five minutes, five days, or five weeks, my dogs enthusiasm usually beats anyone else’s once I arrive home.

2. My dog will run/walk with me.

I usually need motivation to take a run or walk but going with my dog makes it so much more entertaining than just walking alone. My dog is always up for an adventure.

3. My dog plays fetch with me.

Even though sometimes he forgets to bring the ball back.

4. My dog is not mean to anyone.

He is absolutely judgmental free, and everyone he sees gets the same joyful greeting.

5. My dog doesn’t get in bad moods.

My dog has been hit by cars (literally), bitten by snakes, and eaten birds whole (and live), and yet he still always seems happy as can be.

6. My dog will clean up food from the floor.

Say goodbye to vacuum cleaners! Except sometimes he sheds so maybe don’t fully ditch the vacuum.

7. My dog listens when no one else will.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been home alone and either talked to him or sang loudly in the same room as him (perks of being a singer when no one else is home am I right), and he just happily listens without judgment.

8. My dog is so cute!

I’ve literally never met someone who doesn’t think he’s adorable.

9. My dog responds well to training.

He can hold his pee for impressively long amounts of time. And he can speak on command-- always a fun party trick.

10. My dog is loyal.

He will stick by my side throughout anything.

11. My dog knows how to enjoy the simple things.

He is so enthralled with a frog or running down a trail. He knows how to enjoy life’s simple pleasures, and it’s inspirational.

12. My dog gives me unconditional love.

No matter what, he will always be there for me. He is very forgiving (even when I put sunglasses on him), and there’s nothing that can replace the love of a special canine friend.

It goes without saying what July 4th symbolizes for Americans and undoubtedly its more important holiday. From parades to foods to speeches, all Americans know that it relates to the day when the 13 original colonies broke free of England, then ruled by King George III. A sometimes-overlooked aspect of Independence Day is bonding with family and friends. That is, after all, where my favorite memories were.

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."


I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

Trip to The City of Dreams

In a city that never sleeps, with constant bustling and hustling in the streets, my friend and I venture out to see what the "Big Apple" is all about.

Trip to The City of Dreams

There are so many ways for one to describe the beautiful city of New York. It is breathtaking, exciting and alive all in one. Taking a trip here was absolutely the adventure of a lifetime for me and I'm so grateful to have gotten to see all there is to do in the "City of Dreams" with one of my best friends.
