I used to hate dogs. I was scratched and chased by a few when I was younger so I didn't like them. I also didn't like how uncontrollable they are. Then my sister got a dog and that took away a lot of my phobias from being around dogs.
My sister got a new dog just as I started being abstinent from PMFO....seriously, every dog I see know I want to give a big hug too! Is that super strange?
