A Dog’s Life

Doesn’t seem like such a bad deal.  You get head scritches with a little metal thing.


You get to go swimming.


You get all googly-eyed and people will crack up. They’ll prolly toss U a treat.


Toys are free.


You get to enjoy the great outdoors.


When you cock your head, people go BAROO? You don’t get what that means.




Sleeping accommodations are always comfortable.


Nice big comfy couches to crash on. Or stand on.


They bring the food and water RIGHT TO YOU!


So close…yet so far.


Nobody gets on your case for excessive drool action.


“I like to snuggle, cuddle, bite skin, chase monstrous objects n’ make people explosively happy.”


And..hey! Green dude! How’d YOU get in here?

    I just love dogs so much! I well up when I think of how much they enrich our lives. Big, small, short, tall, I love them all. They are some of God’s best work, if not THE best.

  2. Pic 8: I thought that was picture of a big dog and his favorite chew toy. I had to stare and stare until I realized it was a little dog in a sweatersweateauh.

    My thoughts exactly! We have two: rescued Shepherd and rescued Beagly-mix and i can’t imagine my life without them!

    Some of humankind’s best work, really. God did the prototype, but we’ve been living alongside them, working with them, and raising them for almost 40,000 years. We remade them in our image, and I think the results speak well of us.

    Ernest – good eye! I also thought 2nd doggeh was a toy until you pointed it out.

  6. It’s a dog’s life, and those cuties deserve it.
