    I've had them all my life..

    Ever since I was a child, I've alwyas liked pets, especially cats. However, the last one I had, which actually belonged to my seven year old daughter Bruna, had to be given away because she's highly allergec to flea bites. We then got her a couple of fish, but what she was really after was a puppy. We finally agreed on getting a sausage dog(doxie) which we named Milady. We were a bit reluctant at first since we lived in a small flat at the time, and worried that the neighbours would start complaning. Well, we were right. Apart from a couple of really nice people, some of the ones who weren't too keen on us, decided to use the dog as an excuse to give us **** until we finally couldn't take it any longer and left the place. As some of you must've read by now, I've already been through 3 mitral valve replacements with the fourth on its way, so, I was getting really anxious due to all the pressure. There was a night when I got really strong palpitations as a result of a pretty bad arguement with one of the neighbours and ended up calling for an ambulance. My husband was boiling mad and blamed them for my ordeal. Anyway, we now live in a house and Milady is free to run around and bark away. There was no way we were going to give up a pet to please those insensitive people!
