Why I'm Glad I'm Not A Dog

I never really appreciated my life until we got a dog. Now there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think, "I'm so glad I'm not a dog!" After hearing it so often, my husband suggested I make a list of my reasons. So here are my top ten . . .

1. I will never be found sitting under a table during meal time begging for food.

2. I don't have to be put on a leash to go for a walk--and then have someone drag me along when I'm not going fast enough. (Although my walking partner might want to do that:-)

3. When I have to "do my business" no one is standing over me watching and then saying, "Good job!!" afterwards.

4. And speaking of "doing my business" . . . when it is raining outside (like all day today) I can stay inside instead of having to run out in the rain to the grass.

5. I will never be caught smelling people, or other disgusting things.

6. You will never find me drinking out of a toilet.

7. I will never have to be kennelled.

8. No one makes me roll over, sit, beg or jump before I can have a treat.

9. Chewing on shoes/bones will never be my favorite hobby.

10. I can eat chocolate!!

Life is good!!

Ha Ha!! Too funny! But I am with ya! I too am glad I am not a dog--although I have to admit I haven't really given it much thought before.

Funny stuff! Me too me too!!

Dave and Camille said...

Haha... what's funny is we're always saying that we wish we could be dogs... no responsibility and just eat/sleep/play all day. Good list!

Before I read this, I was going to say I agree with Camille's stand but then I saw number 10 and I changed my mind.

So soo soooo SO LOL~! This is great - especially for a "dog" person. I'll have to share it with my husband. I can totally relate.
