Forever etched in our hearts. You will never wander far away…your lessons echo in our embrace, your empathy makes us kinder, your zest for walking will keep us fit and your never ending tour de force to get even one scrap of our food will always make us want to share..
Under stress, endless projects and tasks to deliver and there you are….waiting patiently or not so patiently nudging us to stop working so hard. Take a break, rub your belly. Throw the toy, it’s never without a reward. You always make us smile.
Rowdy barking makes us aware…the neighbor has arrived..or is it the mailman? A stranger or just some kid ringing the bell. You are there to save us from it all….even if it’s to hassle them so they will pat you and play with you.
Being there, wagging your tail….hop on our laps and licking away the tears. If you own a furry friend you will never truly be alone. You are loved, adored and watched like a hawk. (You never know where that scrap of food might fall :-)
Attention is all they seek. Attention from you, hugs, kisses and loads of love. Forget about your money, status, car or clothes as long as you have a dog you will be rich.
Be prepared to go on long walks, to chase after birds together and occasionally wonder why you have so few socks (see our other post.) Peanut butter is not on your grocery shopping list, as well as small plastic bags and rawhide bones to chew.
You are one of us! Come bask in the love we have for our dogs and the FB group we started so we can connect more easily with each other. See you there :-)
P.S. Share your own ode to your pup in our Hipster Hounds facebook group
