Yip! There it is!

Today I am thankful for dogsGod really knew what He was doing when He created dogs.  I am wondering if Adam decided that “dog” was man’s best friend.  Can’t you see Adam and Eve getting in an argument?  Adam goes off to be alone, here comes dog to sit beside him, look at him with imploring eyes and cock his head to the side as Adam grumbles. 

I love dogs.  They are happy to see you whether you’ve been gone 5 minutes or 5 days, they act the same either way.  Dogs – when well taken care of – are predictable and steady lovers of everything you do.  Dogs readily show their enthusiasm by wagging their tails, smiling, barking and jumping up and down.  Honestly, I know our dogs get way more excited about going for a walk than I do, but their enthusiasm is contagious.

Dogs come equipped with sympathy and empathy vibes as well.  If you don’t feel well the dog will come and lie down beside you, if they can manage it they will prop their head on you for comfort and (hopefully) gain a pat on the head.

Dogs are bandits, comedians, clowns, racers, chasers, barkers, protectors, sniffers, fetchers, and sneaker eaters, but more than all of those, dogs are loyal companions and welcome friends. 

Take a moment today to enjoy the antics of a dog; it will brighten your day and the dogs too!

  1. I love dogs. To me a house feels empty without a dog, which I guess is why we now have 3 dogs (plus 2 cats, a guinea pig, 2 owl finches and a 90 gallon saltwater fishtank). Dogs have so much love to give. They have empathy and I believe they are a great judge of character. Watching my 110 lb Black Lab-Coonhound mix play with our latest addition, a Cavashon puppy who weighs less than 10 lbs, is hysterical. Dogs have always been part of my life and probably always will be.

  2. I absolutely heart my Boston Terrier, Butch. He is, as my mother so eloquently states, “my dog-and-friend”. I rescued him a couple years ago, but I feel like he rescued me. He brightens my spirits, loves me unconditionally, never speaks an unkind word, and makes me laugh. I agree 100%; Dogs may be the best beings on the planet!
