i WAS EMAILED this today by a very good friend of mine who always seems to have problems with non pet lovers who visit her. her son gave it too her, now i share it with you.
My dogs live here, theyre here to stay, you dont like pets? be on your way. They share my home, my food, my space, this is their home, this is their place.
You will find dog hair on the floor, they will alert youre at the door. They may request a little pat, a simple 'NO' will settle that. It gripes me when i hear you say, 'JUST HOW DO YOU LIVE THIS WAY" THEY smell, they shed, they're in the way, WHO ASKED YOU? IS ALL I CAN SAY.
they love me, more than anyone, my voice is like the rising sun, they merely have to hear me say, 'come on, its time to go and play.'
then tails wag, and faces grin, they bounce and hop and make a din, they never say, no time for you, they are always there, to go and do. and if im sad, they re by my side, and if im mad, they circle wide. and if i laugh, they laugh with me, they understand they always see.
so once again, i say to you,
'come visit me,' but know this too.
My dogs live here, they re here to stay, you dont like pets? be on your way. they share my home, my food my space, this is thier home, this is their place.
