D is for dog, for life without a dog is sorry indeed ~Lori

 A dog is not “almost human” and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such. ~John Holmes

  1. This is an awesome post! I love dogs. The dogs I’ve had in my lifetime (about four of them at various times) have all been much better company than most humans I know…haha Great pictures, too. I love the contrasting and totally agree with it.

    • I agree. And you never have to worry about a dog pretending to be excited to see you, either. When I walk into a room, it’s usually to my parents who say: “When are you moving out?” lol

  2. THIS IS SO TRUE. Dogs are the best. I’ve had mine since she was a puppy and she’s 17 now and still going strong! We still have 30 minute conversations where we just wine and moan, and she constantly sneezes when she’s very excited or happy. This post makes me happy! The photos are also spot on

    • I currently have 2. We put the 3rd down a while back. 😦
      My big Aussie sneezes too. Whenever he puts his nose up in the air, he sneezes. He’s pretty vocal too. One time I swear he said “Cheetos.” I’ve been trying to get him to repeat it for years, but to no avail.

    • Thanks for stopping by, Linda.
      Love my Aussie. ♥ He’s getting old though. Just turned 11 and showing it. 😦
      My other is a Bichon/Terrier mix. He’s a little love muffin with a Terrier attitude. Cutest thing ever. Trophy husband asked, “What does he do?” I responded, “He doesn’t DO anything. He’s a companion dog!” I don’t think trophy husband understands the concept of a dog that doesn’t herd or guard or fetch.
      I think my next will be a Bichon Havanese or a Mini Golden Doodle. Both are adorable.
