Special Tuesday’s Top Ten: If I Didn’t Have a Dog

This one was so good, we had to expand the Tuesday Top Ten to be a Tuesday Top Twenty!  Things we could do if we didn’t have dogs:

20.  We could walk around our yards barefoot in complete safety.

19.   We could carpet our houses rather than using only tile and laminate.

18.  All flat surfaces, clothing, furniture, and cars would be free of hair.

17.  When the doorbell rings, our houses wouldn’t sound like kennels.

16.  We could sit on our couches and beds the way we wanted, without taking into consideration how much space several fur bodies would need to get comfortable.

15.  We would have money to spend, and no guilt over going on real vacations.

14.  We would not be on a first-name basis with six different veterinarians, as we put their yet unborn grandchildren through college.

13.  The most used words in our vocabularies would not be:  out, sit, down, come, no, stay, and leave it alone!

12.  Our houses would not be cordoned off into zones with baby gates or other barriers.

11.  The phrases “Eat your din-din.” and “yummy yummy for your tummy!” would never be uttered.

10.  Our houses wouldn’t be littered with toys.

9.  Our pockets would be free of poop bags, treats, and extra leashes.

8.  We would not have to spell words like B-A-L-L,  F-R-I-S-B-E-E,  W-A-L-K,  T-R-E-A-T,    C-O-O-K-I-E,  B-I-K-E,  C-A-R,  G-O, and  R-I-D-E.

7.  We wouldn’t have just as many leaves inside our homes as outside.

6.  We wouldn’t look strangely at people who think having ONE dog ties them down too much.

5.  We’d look forward to spring, with its peaceful rain, rather than dreading mud season.

4.  We’d never have to answer the question, “Why do you have so many animals?”

3.  We’d never experience the joy of knowing we are loved unconditionally.

2.  We’d never personally know an angel.

1.  Our lives would be so EMPTY!

Until next time,

Good day, and good dog!

  1. I love this. It is so true. If it werent for my k9 children I couldn’t get throught all the tough times. They don’t care if you feel blue. They just want to play and love you. When you do, you can’t help but smile and feel a little better. My dogs are my family just like the humans. To be honest, there are times I like them more or would rather it be just my dogs and me. Any one who has never know the love and caring and the goofyness of a dog, well, they just haven’t lived.

  2. Pookie – I love the idea of using a foreign language. Hope you are multi-lingual, as your smart dog will soon figure out the foreign words, too! Thanks for commenting.

  3. Don’t forget S-Q-U-I-R-R-E-L or K-I-T-T-Y. Neither word can be even uttered from across the house…
    Unfortunately my dog is becoming literate and knows such things as T-R-E-A-T, O-U-T, W-A-L-K, and P-A-R-K already. Now these words have been switched for synonyms like “jaunt” or a different lanuage like “caminata”.
    Funny what we do so as not to disappoint our sensitive little doggies.
