  1. Love this entry!! So true. A lot of this goes for kitties, too, except cats aren't as active as dogs. I love my life full of pet children, and we plan on adopting more when we move into a bigger place. :o)

  2. Another thing dogs are good for (when I was a kid):I would quietly "slip" them veggies off my plate when no one was looking, so that I wouldn't have to sit forever at the table (because my plate had to be clean before I could leave the table!).

  3. Hey Jennifer, saw you over on SITS and I decided to pop in to say hello! Love the list. My problem is I have a cat, and if you've ever had a cat, you know they are pretty much good for… NOTHING! jk… I love my kitty. (But he really doesn't do much!)

  4. Cute Post! Makes me appreciate our two dogs once again ~~ as of late, they have been driving me boogey-crazy! I guess they are like kids in the sense that they just want to have fun…..

  5. Too fun! "Dust Bust" is an actual command for our dog. I can say "Dust Bust" and you will hear a thunderbolt of paws across the upstairs floor and she will instantaneously appear where ever you are downstairs. Then her big brown eyes and long black nose scan the floor for something tasty :)

  6. Oh, this is so funny. I have cats who have their own list of how they help me. Keeping me humble: They consider if they will come when called. Most times, they don't. They don't want me believing life answers to my beckon call. A wonderful lesson, in deed.
