    If I Didn't Have A Dog... Or Cat...

    If I Didn't Have A Dog... Or Cat...


    >>
    I could walk barefoot around the yard in safety.



    My house could be carpeted instead of tiled and laminated.

    All flat surfaces, clothing, furniture, and cars would b
    e hair-free.

    When the doorbell rings, my home wouldn't sound l
    ike a kennel.



    When the doorbell rings, I could get to the door without wading through all the fuzzy bodies who beat me there.

    I could sit on the couch and my bed any way I wanted, without having to take into consideration how much space several fur bodies need to get comfortable.




    I would have enough 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 through college.



    The most used words in my vocabulary would not be:
    "out," "sit,""down", "come," "no," "stay,"
    And "leave it ALONE.

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



    I would not talk 'baby talk'. 'Eat your din din'. 'Yummy Yummy for thetummy'...

    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 extraleash.



    I would no longer have to spell the words B-A-L-L, W-A-L-K, T-R-E-A-T, O-U-T, G-O, R-I-D-E, S-U-P-P-E-R, and 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 much.



    I'd look forward to spring and the rainy season instead of dreading them as 'mud' season.



    I would not have to answer the question: 'Why do you have so many animals?' from people who will never know the joy of being loved unconditionallyby the closest thing to an angel they will ever encounter.
    How EMPTY my life would be!!!>>

    You also have make sure you neighbor does not take the same vacation days as you so they can feed and water your animals.

    I agree.. I'm blessed with a dog that doesn't shed.. but you will always find at least one poop bag in the wash, as I keep forgetting to take the unused ones out.. It's funny when people ask why I have a bag in my pocket..

    We have 4 dogs and a cat. My DH said one day, "we have too many". My response was "which one do you want to get rid of?". I'm still waiting for an answer
