WIN a $300 Dream Holiday!

Have I ever told you it was my dog, Soda, that chose my husband? Well there was a few years of dating before we got married, but it was Soda who gave the intial nod of approval. You see for as lovely as she is, Soda used to have a habit of barking at strange men when they would come to our door. Only once I explained it was ‘OK’ would she turn into her fluffy, huggable self.

But when Andy (my now husband of 3 years) showed up on my doorstep for the first time? Not a peep out of the black and white barking machine. In fact when I opened the door she immediately sat at Andy’s feet and readily soaked up a bucketload of pats. Long before I knew this man was to be my future husband, she had picked it!

Cut forward to now, and I couldn’t imagine my life without either of these two. We do everything together. So when I recently teamed up with online dating specialists eHarmony I knew I wanted to share some of that love around. You see eHarmony is all about bringing like minded people together. No waiting til the first date to find out they’re a cat person! Through their unique date matching system you can find the perfect soul mate who’ll love you and your dog.

    We choose our dog because we simply just want to be loved and to give love back. Our dog came into our lives when the whole family needed comfort and healing and just the simplicity of her adoration and beautiful nature was a tonic a doctor could never possibly put in a bottle.

    Choosing a Siberian Husky x Border Collie was an act of insanity, which is not surprising coming from me. Turns out we’re both stubborn, determined and love a challenge. We keep each other on our toes!

  16. Felicity says:

    My dog is absolutely crazy and energetic, just like me!

  17. Allyson Croxford says:

    My Chi’s are loving, Cheerful and super protective of the ones they love – exactly like me!

  19. Sydney says:

    My boyfriend and I met online, and we now have a little Cavachon puppy together. We chose her because she’s a mix of our personalities. I’m more like the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, a true lap dog who is affectionate but shy, and my boyfriend is like the Bichon Frise, very outgoing and friendly.

  20. Chasely says:

    P.s Where is the place in the pic for this post. It looks amazing!

  21. Samantha says:

    My chose my dog because she’s blonde, fun-loving and happy all the time!

  22. Margaret Croxford says:

    Jacky says I am the most caring nanna he has ever known and is so glad we adopted him from the stinking pound

  23. Fiona says:

    My choice of dog says that I don’t worry about what you look like. Its whats on the inside that counts…. A dirty scruffy mutt adopted from a shelter with a kind gentle soul that would’nt ever hurt a flea. : )

  24. Laura says:

    When my husband and I adopted our Siberian Husky, he was a broken dog that had never been loved. 18 months on and he is the love and light of our life, along with our other husky girl. Our boy now knows what love, respect and safety feels like. And because 2 high engergy crazy furballs aren’t enough, we also foster siberian huskies until their happily ever afters come along. I think my choice of dog says that I am a sucker for constantly cleaning up and being covered in h

  25. Its amazing what your learn about yourself from your dog. My girl, Peanut, takes after me and the person (oh I mean dog) she has turned out to be, says a lot about me and my personality. Somehow unconsciously I have raised her to be a fussy, boisterous, cheeky, needy, conniving, sneaky, incorrigible, cuddly, loving, affectionate and altogether proper little princess of a dog who I couldn’t love more for her quirky personality traits. There are many little pieces of me in her.

  28. Sherrie says:

    I took me a long to find the right pup, I walked in to a shelter and saw three pups, two boys one girl, the girl was the quietest and most independent out of all three, I asked to look at her separately her personality mirrored mine and now I’d be lost without her. She is cheeky, intelligent and knows when someone needs and cuddle or friend. She has taught me to live again. She helped me and I helped her. So my choice of dog says that I’m just as cheeky, sneaky and loving as she is. That we were twins in a former life.

  29. I’m not sure who chose whom when it comes to our little Mamma Biscuit but I do know one thing’s for sure: on paper, it looks like we rescued her froma puppy mill but in reality, she rescued us! She affirms my life and all that’s worth living for in this world but I’m a firm believer that all dogs do this, Mamma Biscuit is just part of that amazing fabric of dogs teh world over! xoxo

    BTW, I liked Pretty Fluffy on Facebook, how could I not!

    My choice of dog is an Australian Bulldog, it says that i am strong and fearless but with the ability to make people laugh with every move I make, I will make fun out of any situation (even if it is just with a cardboard box) My pumba seems to delight in boxes.. oh and it also says that I will never give up.. I will keep going to meet my goal until I drop 🙂

    The aim of my life is to have “appreciation”
    My beautiful and bold St Bernard helped to establish a my stable foundation!
    I admired this beautiful dog run with pride on all fours!
    As I was searching for a home surrounding the great and grand outdoors!
    Then after purchasing 2 acres I decided to make a HUGE and life changing decision!
    I fell in love with a gorgeous and generous sized vision!
    His weight was more than mine!
    BUT the deal was sealed when I walked away and heard him whine!
    “BIG BEAR” is his name,
    Gentle and extremely tame!
    “BIG BEAR” is enormous in size,
    But let me assure you he is very wise,
    A protector!
    We refer to “BIG BEAR” as the household director!
    My choice of dog (bear) makes a HUGE statement about me,
    Live with eyes wide open and don’t live life in fear!
    Do not judge by what you see,
    Look deep within and happiness you will foresee!
    My children and chickens he does cautiously guard!
    Chasing wild foxes from the yard,
    Just like me as a mother protecting her child,
    If there is threat I am aroused with fear and my feelings run wild!
    Society often loses its way,
    BUT “Big Bear” has helped me to live in the moment and frolic and play!
    My dog (bear) makes a statement that I am also strong,
    AND that no matter what challenges arise I must carry on!

  88. Melissa Brown says:

    I chose my dog(s) because when we walked past them in the pound something told us we had to go back.

    My dog choice was not the most flattering if it reflects on me lol. We got him from the pound and love him to death and wouldn’t trade him for the world. But he is currently five kilos overweight and is on a strict diet (like me). He is smelly despite numerous baths, drools on everything and humps the clothesline daily.

  93. Anna says:

    My dog’s name is “BIG Bear”!!!
    A rather larger than life dog that I deeply care,
    I own a very beautiful and “BIG” St Bernard!
    Determined! Dedicated and works so very hard!
    What does my choice of dog say about me?
    That I an open-minded and one’s inner soul is what I see!
    Animals and people should be loved BIG and SMALL,
    I do not judge and always stand tall!
    Reflecting I have an “ASTRONOMICAL” amount of love to give!
    AND a companion that is very intelligent I love to live!!!
    My choice of dog reflects that I don’t fit into a symmetrical square!
    AND that my spare time I am delighted to share…
    Bush Walking! Camping! I appreciate the great outdoors!
    With my very protective dog (bear) walking by my side on all fours!
    I like to move outside my everyday mundane existence and take chance,
    A simple person with simple needs! No need holiday in a chateau in France!
    I am eager to add new activity and make a new acquaintance if an opportunity arose,
    An animal lover of all kinds my choice of dog shows!
    Last BUT not least my choice of dog is a mirror of the metal pattern that is going on inside of me,
    That I am a happy spirit, healthy, compassionate, non-judgemental and love to feel free!!!!!

  134. Paul Laughlin says:

    I got my Cocker Spaniel from the dogs home because I think there are so many dogs in these homes that just simply need a home. Anyways, I chose this dog because he was called Starbuck, (not Starbucks aka evil coffee provider). Being a huge Sci-Fi (and Battlestar fan), I wasn’t going to pass this dog up. I know this was a huge risk, and like some dogs in a home, they have been abused in the past, but despite our initial teething problems, we have bonded so well and Starbuck is a great member of our family.
    Now, I did some research online, apparently this is what owning a cocker spaniel says about the owner…….Cocker Spaniels are sweet, respectful, and gentle. Owners of this breed are charming, trustworthy, and affectionate.
    I can honestly says that neither statements are true, Starbuck is as mischievous and clever as a Beagle and the day I can be charming might be the day I can get a date….still haven’t figured that one out yet. I did try and use Starbuck as an opening line to try and get a date in the dog park. That is definitely a story for the pub and we don’t go back there.
    PS: I liked on Facebook, that’s another entry right?
