IF I DIDN’T HAVE A DOG

IF I DIDN’T HAVE A DOG

I could walk around the yard barefoot in safety. My house could be carpeted instead of tiled and laminated.

All flat surfaces, clothing, furniture, and cars would be free of hair.  When the doorbell rings, it wouldn’t sound like a kennel. When the doorbell rings, I could get to the door without wading through fuzzy bodies who beat me there. I could sit on the couch and my bed the way I wanted, without taking into consideration how much space several furry bodies would need to get comfortable. I would have money … and no guilt to go on a real vacation. I would not be on a first-name basis with 6 veterinarians, as I put their yet unborn grand kids through college.  The most used words in my vocabulary would not be: out, sit, down, come, no, stay, and leave him/her/it ALONE. My house would not be cordoned off into zones with baby gates or barriers.

My house would not look like a day care center, toys everywhere. My pockets would not contain things like poop bags, treats and an extra leash…  

I would no longer have to spell the words B-A-L-L, F-R-I-S-B-E- E, W-A-L-K, T-R-E-A-T, B-I-K-E, G-O, R-I-D-E I would not have as many leaves INSIDE my house as

CASH ON HIS BACK

outside. I would not look strangely at people who think having ONE dog/cat ties them down too much.

I’d look forward to spring and the rainy season instead of dreading “mud” season.   I would not have to answer the question “Why do you have so many animals?” from people who will never have the joy in their lives of knowing they are loved unconditionally by someone as close to an angel as they will ever get.

How EMPTY my life would be!

We are pet care providers and love all animals. Been in business 12 years.

    I loved these commandments!
    Every pet owner should have them.
    And every prospective owner.
    (which should be everyone else in the world-personally I think it is a requirement for life)
    You sound like you are located in Ventura County.
    Just wondered as I have a long-haired Jack Russell
    who occaisionally needs a few pals, but we are in L.A.
