Men And The Pets They Claimed To Not Want

But we already know how that ends. The thing is, the didn't know just how much they'd grow to love said pet. And it's quite a lovely and magical sight to behold.

Don't mind us, we get teary-eyed over absolutely everything and this is no exception.

Guy Starts "A Walk And a Talk" Group For Men Who Need Someone To Talk To While Walking Their Dogs

Robert Osman from Bristol, UK, started his unique men group, "Dudes and dogs" after realizing that walking his dog in the fresh air was the only thing that helped him during times of anxiety and depression in his life. 

Osman defines "Dudes & Dogs" as a Community Interest Group created with one simple premise. To get men out in the fresh air together for a walk and talk. We want men to understand that it's not just okay to talk, it's important" 

On his website, Robert goes on to explain: "Although the stigma seems to be lessening, many men suffering from depression never speak up. Most of us feel the need to bottle everything up and "soldier through" tough times, but everyone needs someone to talk to, even the toughest of us. It's not in a weird way, it's just clearing my emotions and resetting. I'm not doing anything unique, everyone knows dogs are good for you, it's good to get fresh air, it's good to talk. It's just combining all those in one place – it's created a safe space. The number of messages I get from blokes saying, 'if it wasn't for my dog, I wouldn't be here' that's pretty common sadly. You have this impression when you're struggling is that you're completely alone on this and no one would understand how you feel. It wasn't until I started going out with these guys that I realized I'm far from unique – it's common as muck."

What a great initiative!

"Men & Cats" Project By Photographer David Williams Breaks The "Crazy Cat Lady" Stereotype

There are "dog" people and there are "cat" people, and photographer David Williams captures men who identify with the latter group. His project titled Men & Cats began in 2009 as a way to break the stereotype of the "crazy cat lady." Williams photographs guys in their homes and on the street with their feline companion close by. "I wanted to show that regardless of gender, many people have found the joy that cat companionship can bring," Williams told Time Out New York. Big like from us! Via: My Modern Met
