Where bad choices make good stories
Gimme a good dog over an average woman anyday!
Had a wire hair Dachshund that worried like that when Granddaughters went into the pool or lake. She would jump in and have to be rescued herself.
Cats are fine pets, but there is nothing like a dog. Nothing else is even close. Period. End of sentence. (Not open for discussion.)
It’s just a dog, kinda dusty in here.
Dogs are wonderful and makes me miss all of my past English Mastiffs, the best breed ever. :)
We don’t deserve them. Not at all. WiscoDave
No. No we sure don't.
Dusty in here again...
We don't deserve them, do we.
Humans can never live up to the love and expectations of our dogs.
Nothing on earth like the love of a good dog. They'll be there for you when no one else will.
And the dog at my house eats his own shit. I think this one is defective.
Had a Chihuahua like that. Would eat any but liked cat shit the best. Our son passed that dog to us after our Shepherd mix had died at 18. No contest. That one and the Shepherd mix we have now don't take nobody's shit.
Not defective just extremely aggravating...especially when they get in your face after chewing on that Scoobie snack.
I looked this situation up. They'll do that because their noses are so sensitive that they'll recognize that there are still nutrients in it.
Always be the kind of person your dog thinks you are.
My HC#3 is a Pretty Good Cat.But I wouldn't rely on him to save me from drowning.
Family cat: "Yeah, you gonna drown."
While on a hunting trip in South Dakota, our guide informed us:"You ought to know that we love our dogs more than we love our wives, so be careful where you point that shotgun."Another man spoke up, "Hell yes. I cat get a new wife anytime, but you can't replace a real good dog."I still haven't gotten over losing that nice dog that's my icon. He was a foundling, and was real smart. About the smartest dog I ever had.
My goal in life is the be the kind of person my dog thinks I am.
The video answers Kipling's question:The Power of the DogRudyard KiplingThere is sorrow enough in the natural wayFrom men and women to fill our day;And when we are certain of sorrow in store,Why do we always arrange for more?Brothers and Sisters, I bid you bewareOf giving your heart to a dog to tear.Buy a pup and your money will buyLove unflinching that cannot lie—Perfect passion and worship fedBy a kick in the ribs or a pat on the head.Nevertheless it is hardly fairTo risk your heart for a dog to tear.When the fourteen years which Nature permitsAre closing in asthma, or tumour, or fits,And the vet’s unspoken prescription runsTo lethal chambers or loaded guns,Then you will find—it’s your own affair—But . . . you’ve given your heart to a dog to tear.When the body that lived at your single will,With its whimper of welcome, is stilled (how still!).When the spirit that answered your every moodIs gone—wherever it goes—for good,You will discover how much you care,And will give your heart to a dog to tear.We’ve sorrow enough in the natural way,When it comes to burying Christian clay.Our loves are not given, but only lent,At compound interest of cent per cent.Though it is not always the case, I believe,That the longer we’ve kept ’em, the more do we grieve.For, when debts are payable, right or wrong,A short-time loan is as bad as a long—So why in—Heaven (before we are there)Should we give our hearts to a dog to tear?
Thanks for posting
Glad I'm not at work right now. Ohio Guy
Cute, but now can we see a video with chimps...........and their dogs.
Dogs are the best companions, understand english perfectly, don't speak a word of it.
And that is why I like dogs more than most people.
My daughter had a standard poodle that had a laser lock on her. Her kept her in his sights at all times. He died about a year ago, we all loved that poodle, to this day. My wife and I have two poodles, my daughter got two more as well. I will always have one.
Bawling like a damned 4 year old right now.
Best friends I ever had or have.
God dammit right in the 1 feeling.... Reminds me of Sophie my dachshund..... Started barking when an intruder tried to lock pick my door at midnight.... Lights turned on by me. Guy ran and drove off. Woman stayed up all night looking at that door even after I walked her... She only layed down when I went to work.Her departing this earth was worse than any girlfriend break up, loss, or anything. Dog was on guard and obedient 100 percent of the time. Wish I had a lifetime more of her company. Best damn dog. No issues . Just pure love, company, and attention to owner.One break up was because I wouldn't get rid of sophie. She was allergic to dogs. I said I guess you gotta go. Thank you for this. Dog is only as good as it's owner. I'm just an average guy. I didn't deserve her love but God damnit I fed her , walked her, played with her , she had her own bed, and spoiled her like the queen she was.
I was going to say something sentimental along the lines of we don't deserve them.But I have two out of the three in my office with me. The big one is licking his butt, loudly, and the puppy was chewing on one of my wife's homemade masks. I just pulled 3' of thread out of this gullet. I shudder to think what #3 is up to.But they're my buddies. The reason they're acting out is I'm sitting here on Kenny's site instead of walking them. They know it's time.
The Kipling poem just tore the guts out of me. I have a Chihuahua mix and a German shepherd pup. Bobo is 9 and Greta is 1. I know it's coming but I try not to think about it. Two of the best friends you can have
