Going to the Dogs

 Today I show gratitude for the canine members of
my family.

We have 3 dogs, Nemo, Thor and Jasmine. I'm sure everyone who reads this and has a dog can relate to what I'm going to say here....

When I come home, no matter what , and I mean no matter what these 3 dogs act like I'm the messiah..

kind of a heavy load but they don't have any expectation of me at all... they're just delighted to have me back at home.. I'm not any where as popular with anyone else..

They like to hang out with me no matter what I'm doing..
 If I'm not feeling well, they follow me into my bedroom and lie down with me..just for moral support.

I know if I were ever in danger all three of them would do their best to protect me, not just me but any of the family.

They ask for so little... food, shelter and companionship and they give back so much. When I'm down they listen and believe me  they've heard it all, complaining, worrying, crying and never once have they not listened quietly with understanding in their eyes..I always feel better after our talks.

Jerry and Jasmine
Yes, they are dirty, loud and tear up my house and yard... but I can get new furniture, clean the yard and handle some barking..
No one's perfect, and friends accept each other as they are...

It's been a long time since I was dogless and I hope it's a long time if ever, that I'm dogless again..
Life is meant to be fun, and it's so much more fun with these guys in it.
