If you can start the day without caffeine;
If you can get going without pep pills;
If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains;
If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles;
If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it;
If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time;
If you can forgive a friend's lack of consideration;
If you can overlook it when those you love take it out on you when,
through no fault of your own, something goes wrong;
If you can take criticism and blame without resentment;
If you can ignore a friend's limited education and never correct him;
If you can resist treating a rich friend better than a poor friend;
If you can face the world without lies and deceit;
If you can conquer tension without medical help;
If you can relax without liquor;
If you can sleep without the aid of drugs;

If you can honestly say that deep in your heart you have no prejudice against creed or color, religion or politics; then, my friend, you are almost as good as your dog.

If you locked up your husband and your dog for an hour in your trunk . . . when you let them out your dog would just be happy to see you . . .

:)) Ha, that's cute, and true. Our golden retriever is like that. She's always happy to see us and is basically just the most perfect dog ever! She's 12 this year, so she's getting old and kind of slow and not as bouncy/energetic, but she still has some of her spunk! She seriously is the sweetest dog I've ever known. Of course when she hears a car drive up she barks like she's going to rip their head off, but then proceeds to just lick them when they come in lol.

I pass most of those things. But nobody is gonna be glad to see me if they pop the trunk after an hour of having me in there.

You need equal doses of blithely stupid and loyal to be in absolute love with the world to match a dog's character. That's why they are such amazing companions. Pets get waaay too little compensation for the love they shower in our lives.

I always say that pets are love and cuteness factories. Food goes in one end, cute and love is the result, and poo is the by product.

They say we are the average of the five folks with whom we spend the most time; I can't help but think that having a dog in my home probably makes me a better person.




Thanks for posting that, Kenny.

I love Kenny's post, and I love this fleur-de-lis!
We have two dogs and three cats at home, so I think I'm doing pretty well!
