IF I DIDN’T HAVE A DOG OR CAT
I could walk around the yard barefoot.
My house could be carpeted instead of tiled and laminated.
All flat surfaces, clothing, furniture, and cars would be free of hair.
When the doorbell rings, it wouldn’t sound like a kennel.
When the doorbell rings, I could get to the door without
wading through fuzzy bodies who beat me there.
I could sit on the couch and my bed the way I wanted, without taking into
consideration how much space several fur bodies would need to get comfortable.
I would have money, and no guilt to go on a real vacation.
I would not be on a first-name basis with 6 veterinarians,
as I put their yet unborn grand kids through college.
The most used words in my vocabulary would not be:
out, sit, down, come, no, stay, and leave it ALONE.
My house would not be cordoned off into zones with baby gates or barriers.
I would not talk ‘baby talk’. ‘Eat your din din’.
‘Yummy yummy for the tummy’…
My house would not look like a day
care center, toys everywhere.
My pockets would not contain things like
poop bags, treats and an extra leash.
I would no longer have to spell the words B-A-L-L,, W-A-L-K,,
T-R-E-A-T,, O-U-T,, G-O,, R-I-D-E,, C-O-O-K-I-E
I would not have as many
leaves INSIDE my house as outside.
I would not look strangely at people who think having
ONE dog/cat ties them down too much.
I’d look forward to spring and the rainy season instead of dreading ‘mud’ season.
I would not have to answer the question…
‘Why do you have so many animals?’
from people who will never have the joy in their lives of knowing
they are loved unconditionally by someone as close to an ANGEL
as they will ever get.
How EMPTY, how about BORING, my life would be!!!
Every cat should own a dog…
Wouldn’t it be great to be loved so unconditionally.. GOD loves us so HE gave us dogs!! They are always there for us too!!
I STARTED TO WRITE SOMETHING REGARDING THESE WONDERFUL PICTURES AND WHAT THEY REPRESENT, BUT SUDDENLY REALIZED THAT THE PICTURES SPEAK MORE ELOQUENTLY THAN ANY WORDS THAT CAN BE EXPRESSED.
Dogs are the most loyal animals on earth
Dogs were created to bring love, happiness.
And companionship into people’s lives (and Are always there to help)
The winners of the baby sitting competition
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your pet.
You are his life, his love, his leader.
He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.
You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.”
