Why I Love My Dogs

Now that I have three dogs, I am sure people are thinking I am crazy. So I just wanted to make a list of a few things that make me adore my four-legged babies:

  1. They are so cute. How could you not think they are?
  2. They are always, and I mean always, excited to see you when you get home. There is nothing like coming home everyday to little beings that are shaking with excitement to see you. It makes me feel good about life.
  3. They make me laugh. I am pretty sure everyday my dogs do something new and original that makes me smile.
  4. The love you with all their hearts and want nothing more than to spend time with you. Again, it makes me feel good about life.
  5. They give me something to come home for. They are something for me to be resposible for, I know I have a husband to come home for too, but he can take care of himself. My pups need me to survive.
  6. They make my life happier. I love having dogs so much, I am passionate about them, and any period if my life that I haven't had a dog to live with, I wanted one badly. For me, life without dogs is hardly life at all. There is a good saying that describes how i feel perfectly: "Dogs aren't your whole life, but they make your life whole"
  7. I love that they eat the food that I drop on the ground. They are helpful around the house.

And more individually now:

  1. I love Paris' brown oval eyes, and how they always look like she is wearing black eyeliner.
  2. I love how Fleury always has to act like a theif when eating her food, because she is a theif and steals other animals food, especially canned food, at every chance she gets.
  3. I love how calm and gentle Maeve is, she relaxes me.
  4. I love the white spot on the tip of Fleury's black tail.
  5. I love Fleury's huge eyes, that are always crying, but always adorable.
  6. I love how smart Paris is, she picks up on new tricks I teach her so quickly.
  7. I love how obedient Paris is. She almost always listens to my commands the first time.
  8. I love how Fleury runs, she is just so excited and so cute when she come barreling toward you.
  9. I love how easily Fleury gets along with everybody, she has such a wonderful personality, the best one I have ever seen in a dog, especially for a Chihuahua.
  10. I love how brave Fleury can be, she always tries something at least once. I remember the first time she went swimming, at Star Lake. She just barrelled into the water at the beach without thinking twice, and she ran in at such a speed that she was up to her neck before she realized what was happening. It was hilarious, she immediatly turned around and swam back out and never came back in again.
  11. It is hilarious watching Paris pee, she always pees doing a handstand, always. I always get comments from people when they see her doing that!
  12. I love watching Paris with big dogs. She gets so upset and walks around looking like an angry wolf with her hair standing up on her back.

I am sure there are many more, maybe I will add some more later. Plus I hardly know Maeve, so I am sure more will come when I get to know her more. I know many of you reading this don't understand. I know there are lots of negative to having a dog as well, but the postitive totally outweight those negatives for me. It is so worth it. I think everybody should get a dog, if they will take care of it properly. I think they are amazing companions, and my kids will never grow up without at least one.

Dogs are great with kids, but I'm not so sure that I'd want one in the house with a baby. I've heard too many stories I guess... even the gentlest dog can get jealous of a new baby.
