Perhaps they are not stars, but rather openings in Heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy. Eskimo proverb

If I DiDn't HaVe a DoG or A CaT...

iF I Didn't Have a Dog.... or Cat....I could walk around the yard barefoot in safety.

My house could be carpeted instead of tiled and laminated.

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

When the doorbell rings, it wouldn't sound like a kennel.

When the doorbell rings, I could get to the door without wading through fuzzy bodies who beat me there.

I could sit on the couch and my bed the way I wanted,
with out taking into consideration how much space
several fur bodies would need to get comfortable.

I would have money, and no guilt to go on a real vacation.

I would not be on a first-name basis with six veterinarians, as

I put their yet unborn grandkids through college.

The most used words in my vocabulary would not be: out,
sit, down, come, no, stay, and leave it ALONE.

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

I would not talk 'baby talk' 'Eat your din din' 'Yummy yummy

for the tummy.'

My house would not look like a day care center, toys

My pockets would not contain things like poop bags,
treats and an extra leash.

I would no longer have to spell the words B-A-L-L,
W-A-L-K, T-R-E-A-T, O-U-T, G-O, R-I-D-E, C-O-O-K-I-E.

I would not have as many leaves INSIDE my house as outside.

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

I'd look forward to spring and the rainy season instead of dreading 'mud' season.

I would not have to answer the question 'Why do you have so many animals?' from people who will never have the joy in their lives of knowing they are loved unconditionally by someone as close to an angel as they will ever get.

How EMPTY my life would be!!!


  1. All I can say is AMEN Sister!!!! Love this post.
    From one animal lover to another.
    Prim Blessings,

  2. What a wonderful post! I agree completely! My babies are so wonderful and bring so much joy to my life. I do not know what I would do without them. I hope you are having a wonderful evening!


  3. Gina,
    For some reason I can see any of the pictures on this post. But I sure did love reading it...our furry kids are the best and bring us so much joy!!

  4. That should of been "can't" see any of the pictures.

  5. I can't see the pictures either but the words are golden. Wonderful post. You are so right, our furry ones may leave hair on the furniture but they give so much love.

  6. That is soooo true..Love me love my pets is what I say and when you come to visit me just remember...You are sitting on their Couch"
    I'm sure you know how I am with my dogs if you have visited my blog :)
    And just keep in mind that Dog spelled backwords is "God"
    I couldn't see any pictures either but I'm sure they were just as wonderful as your post.

  7. I could relate to every single point shared here. I had to laugh about the kennel part. Oh my goodness, my toy poodles. Some times when I'm talking to someone about them I will let them know how bad they can get when guests come..I will say, 'hello' (even though NO ONE is at the door) and they start flipping out barking,LOL

  8. This could be my house your talking about. :) Gotta love our fur babies!
