Isn't this the truth . . .
If I Didn't Have a Dog...or Cat......or a parrot ..or a
rabbit, horse, or any furbaby!
I could walk around the yard barefoot
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
I could sit on the couch and my bed
the way I wanted, without taking into consideration how much
space several fur bodies would need to get
I would have money, and no guilt to go
on a real vacation.
I would not be on a first-name basis
with 6 veterinarians, as I put their yet unborn Grandkids
The most used words in my vocabulary
would not be: out, sit, down, come, no, stay, and leave it
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
My house would not look like a day
care center, toys everywhere.
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,,
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
I'd look forward to spring and the
rainy season instead of dreading 'mud'
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
Love you my Coco mocha be my Pal!
