If I did not have Dogs..............

1. I could walk around the yard barefoot in safety.

2. My house could be carpeted instead of tiled and laminated.

3. All flat surfaces, clothing, furniture, and cars would be free of Dog

4. When the doorbell rings, it wouldn't sound like the NCDL kennels.

5. When the doorbell rings, I could get to the door without wading through
dog bodies who beat me there.

6. I could sit on the couch the way I wanted, without taking into
consideration how much space several fur bodies would need to get

7. I would not have strange presents under my Christmas tree-like dog
bones, stuffed animals or have to answer to people why I wrap them.

8. I would not be on a first name basis with three vets.

9. The most used words in my vocabulary would not be: "out", "sit",
"down","come", "no", "stay", and "leave him/her/it ALONE".

10. My house would not be cordoned off into zones with baby gates or

11. My pockets would not contain things like poo bags, dog treats and an
extra leash.

12. I would no longer have to spell the words B-A-L-L or F-R-I-S-B-E- E or
W-A-L-K or C-O-O-K-I-E-S.

13. I would not have as many leaves INSIDE my house as outside.

14. I would not look strangely at people who think having their ONE dog
ties them down too much.

15. I'd look forward to Spring and the melting of the snow instead of
dreading "mud season".

16. I would not have to answer the question "Why do I have so many dogs?"
from people who will never have the joy in their life of knowing they are
loved unconditionally by something as close to an angel as they will ever

17. How empty my life would be....

Yep, so many things would change if we didn't have our babies. What a boring life it would be

<DIV> Here's another one thats so true !!! especially the one about the stairs, I have taken quite a few tumbles because of the race
<DIV>If you are or have been a pet owner, you will find the following to be
so true

Dear Dogs and Cats,

The dishes with the paw print are yours and contain your food. The
other dishes are mine and contain my food. Please note, placing a paw
print in the middle of my plate and food does not stake a claim for it
becoming your food and dish, nor do I find that aesthetically pleasing
in the slightest

The stairway was not designed by NASCAR and is not a racetrack.
Beating me to the bottom is not the object. Tripping me doesn't help
because I fall faster than you can run

I cannot buy anything bigger than a king-sized bed. I am very sorry
about this. Do not think I will continue sleeping on the couch to ensure
your comfort. Dogs and cats can actually curl up in a ball when they
sleep. It is not necessary to sleep perpendicular to each other
stretched out to the fullest extent possible. I also know that sticking
tails straight out and having tongues hanging out the other end to
maximize space is nothing but sarcasm.

For the last time, there is not a secret exit from the bathroom. If by
some miracle I beat you there and manage to get the door shut, it is not
necessary to claw, whine, meow, try to turn the knob, or get your paw
under the edge and try to pull the door open. I must exit through the
same door I entered. I have been using the bathroom for years--canine or
feline attendance is not mandatory.

The proper order is kiss me, then go smell the other dog or cat's
butt. I cannot stress this enough!

To pacify you my dear pets, I have posted the following message on our
front door:
