My best friend is a beast named Ice Cream. About ten years ago, I rescued her from the county pound. I could tell her days in the cage had not defeated her yet. I knew that, together, we could conquer the world. And in many ways, we have.
Ice Cream has proven herself to be a more than worthy canine. For the one third of my life that we’ve been together, we have battled so many obstacles, grown into womanhood together, protected each other and finally, we have settled down into the best time of our lives yet. With a husband in our family unit, Ice Cream can lay back a little bit and watch my (our) husband provide us with emotional support and protection.
It’s easy to say I love her. My husband once explained that she’s the first dog he’s developed such a strong relationship with. Well, it’s hard not to fall for her charm. All that being said, some of my all-time favorite gifts are gifts that encourage my friendship with Ice Cream. If one of your friends, family members or even colleagues owns a dog, you will definitely hit a home-run in the gift department if you go with the “doggy” theme. Dog-lover gifts are one-size fits all smile makers.

Her post is straightforward and pretty bias-free; her tone is calm, but frank. While some of her experiences at the company might appall readers, her author’s […]
