Dog Deprivation

duffy-daisy2.1

If you want to know what being a dog-friend means, ask someone who has lost hers.

  • When you come home, you can expect to be welcomed.
  • You can always find a reliable companion for walking or hiking or even running.
  • You don’t worry about being surprised by an intruder, a rattlesnake, a fire, or even a chipmunk in the house. You’ll be warned.
  • When you feel down and don’t want to do anything, your fuzzy friend won’t tolerate your funk. You’ll have to go out, anyway.  Movement is life.
  • When you’re cooking and you realize you dropped some food item on the floor, you won’t have to get on your hands and knees to find it. Your friend will either be inspecting it or eating it.
  • You’ll have a reminder that Daylight Savings Time is silly, because your friend won’t honor it.
  • You never lack for someone to talk to who won’t disagree or make that “are you for real?” face. Add affectionate touching, and you can talk as long as you want.
  • You’ll have ample opportunities to exercise patience and tolerance for bad smells, dirt, and hair. You’ll experience lessons in priorities.Belle-smile
  • Your friend will remind you that you don’t need anything but sufficient food, water, shelter, room to play and love to have an excuse to be joyful.
  • If you really want to play, you can find toys everywhere. The world is beautiful.
  • Not everyone who smiles or is attractive is good or kind. Believe actions. Even ugly can be a life-saver.
  • Sharing happiness multiplies it.
