6 Reasons to Have a Dog.

Having a dog means…

1. It means you’ll always have someone who genuinely wants to have dinner with you.

2. It means there’s always someone at home waiting for you. (And, sometimes waiting on you. To throw that ball.)

3-ball-dog3. It means you’ll always be needed. And loved. And worthy of some tail-wagging.

4. It means there will always be someone who doesn’t judge you. Unless you forget a dog walk or meal time. At those rare instances, you might have to wait 2 seconds for forgiveness. Okay, done.

5. It means there’s someone who—despite #’s 1-4—is still their own being, capable of their own (sometimes irritating) decisions. And, physiologically speaking, could survive without you. Just doesn’t want to.

6. It means there’s always, always, always at least one happy living being in your home. Can you put a price on that?

  1. What a fab list. Although, we all could extend this list by about another hundred or so reasons, right?


  2. It’s hard to believe I actually existed without a dog for so long. I think it’s amazing how much I more I have to do now with a puppy… all the added responsibilities… but I never seem to have a problem getting everything done. Maybe a little tired at times, but man… it’s so worth it! 😀
