I like dogs
Big dogs, Little dogs
Fat dogs, Doggy dogs
Old dogs, Puppy dogs
I like dogs
A dog that is barking over the hill
A dog that is dreaming very still
A dog that is running wherever he will
I like dogs
(Margaret Wise Brown, ‘The Friendly Book’)

A person can learn a lot from a dog, even a loopy one like ours. Marley taught me about living each day with unbridled exuberance and joy, about seizing the moment and following your heart. He taught me to appreciate the simple things-a walk in the woods, a fresh snowfall, a nap in a shaft of winter sunlight. And as he grew old and achy, he taught me about optimism in the face of adversity. Mostly, he taught me about friendship and selflessness and, above all else, unwavering loyalty. (John Grogan, ‘Marley and Me: Life and Love With the World’s Worst Dog‘)

If you don’t own a dog, at least one, there is not necessarily anything wrong with you, but there may be something wrong with your life. (Roger A. Caras)

It isn’t surprising that I agree with everything. Lovely post.

I KNOW you are a dog lover. 🙂

I just wagged my tail.

That might be worth a pic…

Fab photos as always – and I definitely think anyone without a dog in his or her life is missing A LOT!

Well, given you have Wonderbutt (and all his eccentricities) AND Mrs P (whom I haven’t heard much about of late. I do hope everything is OK with her?). You are keeping your bases covered.

AND, you overachiever, you – TWO blogs?!?!?!

Crap. Was hoping you wouldn’t notice that. Don’t tell anyone. And, actually, I have three. Crazy, right?

I think you’re safe (although LM says we shall have to plan a trip to Austin at some stage, so – maybe not that safe…).

And… THREE?!?!?!

So, just out of curiosity, how did you make the connection?

Hold on, hold on… Three dogs or three blogs?

Mainly because you were a new commentor whose language was pretty familiar. So, I investigated. Nice pic 🙂

Three blogs. I am just worried about how easy it was for you to investigate – in case others do the same. I’m trying to keep the school blog separate from the personal one, mostly so I don’t get fired 😉

Oh yeah! Life without our dogs would not be as much fun.

A look at these photos explains perfectly why they give us so much joy 🙂
