Found a quote today, “In a perfect world, every dog would have a home and every home would have a dog.”
What a great quote for this day. You see, I was attending a dog-related seminar this week, and being that it took place in a hotel that doesn't accept pets, it's a bit strange - while we are here discussing dogs all day, there aren't any dogs around!
Penny and I share our home with five dogs, and of course I always miss my own doggies when I'm away from home. (This photo here is of me and my Bichon, Tyler.) I even miss our doggie daycare pups when I don't get to see them for a while.
Sometimes, there is a surrogate doggie that I can latch onto to help fill the void. It's so nice when that happens. But it's so weird when I go away and there are just no dogs to be found! Kind of reminds me how important dogs are to my life and how happy I am just having a dog in my lap.
I honestly don't remember what it was like not having a dog in my life...and I cannot imagine living in a home in which there are no dogs. I must admit that I have always felt a little sorry for people who say that they have never "owned" a dog; they're missing so much love and so many smiles - and they don't even know it. And of course we all know that dogs own us; it's not the other way around.
Anyway, help me out a bit and give your pooch an extra snuggle from me as I make my way back to my pups!
