Who let the dogs out?

All his life he tried to be a good person. Many times, however, he failed.
For after all, he was only human. He wasn’t a dog.  – Charles M. Schulz

Dogs are man’s best friend because man does not want to be told what to do. Dogs don’t mind this; man can be trained without his knowledge and chasing after sticks is fun.

Not all dogs may seem obedient, but they are still listening. They may just be listening to themselves over someone who’s yelling. Dogs hear a higher range of tones than human hearing can detect. Perhaps all dogs simply have really loud, high-pitched voices?

Dogs want to please. They are loyal and loving. They love to roll in anything that stinks or rots and will always come to share that with you. A wet dog will shake off beside you so that later you can know how good it feels to be dry.

They love to play and experience life in the moment. Who can not help but smile at the rolled back eyes and ears, with tongue all askew, as a dog in full tilt chases a favorite toy? They may also chase smaller animals and then our reaction may not be a smile. However, you completely forget everything but the moment as you watch this.

I am more of a dog than a cat person, but I have a cat. The next dog I have will smell the cat in my house and be ashamed of me forever. It’s like I’m already asking the dog to be the second pick. How could I ask my best friend to be less from the start?

Do we like dogs that have our personality? Do we like dogs that look like us? Do you have a dog?

  1. We adopted two dogs three years ago. I was always more of a cat person until we got the dogs. Now I can’t imagine not having a dog around. One is confident, energetic, and always ready for an adventure. The other is laid back and shy. They balance each other well, and they’re awesome runners.

    • I would have to have a dog that ran, but that also didn’t *need* to run. THat’s what I miss a lot; having a companion out on the trails. It’s always so much more fun when you see someone else having fun as well.
