Family Dog

    If you can start the day without caffeine.
    If you can get going without pep pills.
    If you can always be cheerful; ignoring aches and pains.
    If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles.
    If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it.
    If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time.
    If you can overlook it when those you love take it out on you when through no fault of yours;                 something goes wrong.
    If you can take criticism and blame without resentment.
    If you can ignore a friends limited education and never correct him.
    If you can resist treating a rich friend better than a poor friend.
    If you can face the world without lies and deceit.
    If you can conquer tension without medical help.
    If you can relax without liquor.
    If you can sleep without the aid of drugs.
    .....Then you are probably the family dog!

Oh, Jo-Anne, I love this! It's so very true...our wonderful, faithful, trusting dogs are always there for us, ready to greet us with their whole being, yet so often we, frail humans that we are, do not live up to their example.

Hi Desiree

Yep us humans often let our pets down and there are some people who really shouldn't be pet owners........

Hi Yevisha

Yeah I think it is so true.

Hi Diane
