10/26/11 – A Dog’s Devotion


“I have found that when you are deeply troubled, there are things you get from the silent devoted companionship of a dog that you can get from no other source.” – Doris Day

“If only men could love each other like dogs, the world would be a paradise.” – James Douglas

I couldn’t choose which one I liked better for today so I wrote both 🙂

Every since I was a child I have had a dog in the house. Starting with BB (who I don’t remember since I was a baby), then Spuds, then Buster B and, finally, my VERY OWN baby, Bailey. Bailey is hands down (obviously I’m biased) the SWEETEST dog in the world!  I get sad every time I think of the day when I won’t have her with me anymore. But it will all have been worth it. She has made my journey so special and amazing so far.

The reason I write about her today, and dogs in general, is because she has been to the vet more than usual the last few months.  As she gets older that just happens I suppose. But, after another visit this morning, it made me really think about how amazing dogs are and the love and comfort they bring us, ALL of us. Who looks at a photo of a puppy and doesn’t say “Awwww…”? They are so devoted and are there for us when no one else is. Only babies can make us smile like dogs can 🙂

It’s true, if mankind could treat one another like dogs treat people, the world would be a better place. They get it…All You Need is Love! (Whoops, is that another quote? haha)  😉

So, dog owners, give a little extra love to your best friend today! They deserve it!
