If I Didn't Have Dogs

1) I could walk around safely barefoot in the dark;
2) My house could be carpeted instead of tiled and laminated;
3) All flat surfaces, clothing, furniture, and cars would be free of
dog hair;
4) When the doorbell rings, it wouldn't sound like the SPCA kennels;
5) When the doorbell rings, I could get to the door without wading
through four or five dog bodies who beat me there;
6) I could sit how I wanted on the couch without taking into
consideration how much space several fur bodies would need to get comfortable; 7) I would not have strange presents under my Christmas tree....like dog bones, stuffed animals or have to answer to people why I wrap them up;
8) I would not be on a first name basis with three vets;
9) The most used words in my vocabulary would not be: out, sit, down,
come, no, and leave him/her ALONE;
10) My house would not be cordoned off into zones with baby gates or
barriers;
11) My purse would not contain things like poo pick up bags, dog
treats dried up bait and an extra leash;
12) I would no longer have to spell the world B-A-L-L or F-R-I-S-B- E-E
or W-A-L-K-I-E-S;
13) I would not buy weird things to stuff into "kongs", or have to
explain why I'm buying them, or what a "kong" is;
14) I would not have as many leaves INSIDE my house as outside;
15) I would not look strangely at people who think having their ONE dog
ties them down too much;
16) I would not have to answer the question why do I have so many dogs
from people who will never have the joy in their life of knowing they are
loved unconditionally by something as close to an angel as they will ever
get.
Who else has a friend who considers you the MOST important thing in the
whole wide world all the time.
