Tuesday’s Top Ten: Why Dogs are Better Than Kids

kids-dogIf you’re like me, there are days you wonder why you ever bothered to have kids in the first place.  Here is our list of the reasons why we should have all just stuck with our dogs.

10.  Kibble and water are much cheaper than diapers and formula.

9.  Dogs have more hair when they are born.

8.  Dogs never forget to go potty before they leave.

7.  Dogs can make it through a whole trip without once complaining that “he’s touching me!” or “she’s looking at me!”

6.  Dogs don’t tell you you’re embarrasing them when you kiss them in front of their friends.

5.  Dogs don’t grow out of their clothes.

4.  No backwash when a dog shares your pop.

3.  You can put your dog in a cage and no one will report you.

2.   Dogs don’t drag a filthy blankie around with them wherever you take them.

1.  Dogs will watch old TV shows with you without laughing at the crappy special effects.

This is just the first half of the list.  Watch for the second half next Tuesday.

Until next time,

Good day, and good dog!

  1. As a dog blogger myself, don’t really understand the reason to compare at all :).

    Are dogs meant to take the place of kids? Thought each had their own separate place.

  2. Dogs know when to shut up and curl up with you, leave you alone, or play. As a matter of fact, my mom doubts she will ever have a two-legged grandchild, although she knows me well enough to know a three-legged one is not out of the question.

  3. Dogs are better because–

    -during the night, they can go by themselves to use the pee pads and get their own water.
    -when acting up, throw water on the dog.
    -leave dog in car, while getting coffee or a little shopping–not when it hot.
    -feed when you want, of course, I have a schedule for me, so I feed the dogs
    -Chihuahuas-wash in sink and use my expensive hair dryer to dry.

  4. Robert – You always make me smile!

    I’m not sure what they call pop in Great Britain. Soda? Carbonated beverage? Soft drink? Whatever. Think Coca-Cola or Pepsi.

  5. Alternative List

    10. Kibble and water are just the beginning Lager and Burgers happen later (Or is this just my dog?)

    9. Dogs have more hair when they are born and will kindly spread it everywhere, including your food.

    8. Dogs never forget to go potty before they leave. Instead they do it in the street where you have to pick it up or face a £1000 fine.

    7. Dogs can make it through a whole trip without once complaining that “he’s touching me!” or “she’s looking at me!”. Instead they bark at oncoming traffic, have to be tied down to prevent a car crash and will release gases that will make you wish you had a convertible.

    6. Dogs don’t tell you you’re embarrasing them when you kiss them in front of their friends. They, however, will embarrass you by cleaning their groin when you invite your spouses parents round for dinner.

    5. Dogs don’t grow out of their clothes. However they will chew their way through yours.

    4. No backwash when a dog shares your pop. WHAT the **** is a pop.

    3. You can put your dog in a cage and no one will report you. That is until they learn how do dial 911. Then, boy, you are in for some trouble. including lots of dial-a-pizza and chat lines to poodles!

    2. Dogs don’t drag a filthy blankie around with them wherever you take them. No, instead they find someone else on a picnic blanket with their children and proceed to go to the toilet in front of them.

    1. Dogs will watch old TV shows with you without laughing at the crappy special effects. However they will look at you with disdain, release some noxious gas and leave the room.
