My dog lives in this house. You are
welcome to come and visit me anytime but we have a few things that you must
understand before you visit. You must expect a few dog hairs to stick to
your clothes. I vacuum and clean, but my dog lives here too.
You may be leaned on and find him in your
lap a few times but he does this because he loves people and wants to say
Hello. So if you feel that you are too good for his love then you are not
welcomed here because this is his home too.
My dog is well mannered and very clean.
But if you are one of those people who thinks all animals are dirty and
smell, then go away. You are not the type of person that I care to associate
with. If you don't like the sound of barking, then my home is not going to
be a comfortable place for you to visit.
Do not expect me to lock my dog in another
room during your visit. I have trained my dog well so he will not do
anything to you except maybe want a pat on the head. I will not subject him
to feel as if he is being punished by locking him away for no reason. That
would be cruel.
When you walk into my home, be careful not
trip on a stuffed toy or ball. These are my dog’s treasures and I will not
take them away from him just to show you that I keep a clean house. He knows
where all his toys are. They may not look like much to you, but to him, they
are worth more than gold.
You see, this is OUR home. We have been
together since he was a small puppy scampering around the house. I raised
him into a well mannered, beautifully behaved dog.
I am proud of him. I consider him my
personal gift from GOD. He has done nothing but give me his endless love and
devotion for many years. I love him dearly and want to make his years happy
ones; as happy as he made mine.
When I was sick, he stayed right by my
side, as I did his when he is not having a good day. A better friend I could
not ask for.
When no one else cared, my dog did. He has
given me nothing but pure joy and I love him endlessly. So please understand
that I am not being rude.
I'm just looking out for my best friend.
