If I Didn't Have Dogs

I could walk around safely barefoot in the dark

My house could be carpeted instead of tiled and laminated

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

When the doorbell rang, it wouldn't sound like the SPCA kennels

When the doorbell rang, I could get to the door without wading thru four or five
dog bodies who beat me there

I could sit how I wanted to on the couch without taking into consideration
where several little furbodies would need to get

I would not have strange presents under my tree dog bones,
stuffed animals and have to answer to people why I wrap them up

I would not be on a first name basis with a vet

Most used words in my vocabulary would not be: potty, outside, sit, down,
come, no, and leave him/her ALONE

My house would not be cordoned off into zones with baby gates

My purse would not contain things like poop pick up bags and dog treats

I would no longer have to spell the words
B-A-L-L, T-R-E-A-T-S, O-U-T-S-I-D-E, and F-R-I-S-B-E-E

I would not buy weird things to stuff into 'kongs' or have to explain
why I'm buying them, or what a "kong" is

I would not have as many leaves and Pine Straw I
NSIDE my house as outside

I would not look strangely at people who think having their
ONE dog ties them down too much

I would not have to answer the question why do I have so many dogs
from people who will never have the joy in their life of knowing they
are loved unconditionally by something as close to an angel as they
will ever get. Who else has a friend who considers you the
MOST important thing in the whole wide world all the time
