Devoted to More Wags and Purrs.

'Until one has loved an animal, part of their soul remains unawakened...
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 & 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, 
without taking into consideration how much space 
Several fur bodies would need to get comfortable. 

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

I would not be on a first-name basis with numerous  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, & leave him/her/it ALONE. 

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

My house would not look like a day care center,          

with 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,, 
F-R-I-S-B-E-E, W-A-L-K,, T-R-E-A-T,, R-I-D-E,, GO 

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.
