Thirteen Reasons to Live with a Dog

1. Dogs always make me laugh. Our deal with Lani is that she makes us laugh and we pay for everything she needs.

2. Someone is waiting for you when you get home.

3. A good reason for leaving a boring party is that you have to go home to let the dog out.

4. If you collect enough dog hair, you can stuff a pillow. I could have probably stuffed three small ones or a very large one by now.

5. Your yard will be safe from squirrels, deer and other wild life.

6. Sometimes the dog is the wild life.

7. You will always be warned whenever someone goes by on a bicycle or on foot in front of your house.

8. Ditto if someone pulls into your driveway.

9. You will most likely get to know your neighbors. People are usually comfortable commenting on a dog and conversations can continue on to other topics.

10. You get taken on walks frequently.

11. Free fertilizer for your yard.

12. You get to watch them sleep. There is no better picture of contentment.

13. You get unconditional love.

Wonderful. On days like today when it's kind of dreary and cold out, I miss my heart dog like the dickens. Lani is awesome!

We love our dog. And our rabbits and guinea pigs and turtles. Pets just seem to add life to the house.

Thanks for visiting my blog!

All very true. Most of the reasons are why I love my two mutts.

Thanks for the comment on my blog. That's one of the things I told the hubby to check before we go buying a new dryer.

If only dogs ruled the world, it would be a much happier place.

Sometimes I think they are here to save us from ourselves by reminding us how to love completely and selflessly.

i have a 6 yr old Beagle which I adopted in June....I think his love for me is conditional based on my ability to feed him his favorite treats!!
