If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,
If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it,
If you can understand when loved ones are too busy to give you attention,
If you can overlook the times people take things out on you when, through no fault of yours, something goes wrong,
If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,
If you can face the world without lies and deceit,
If you can conquer tension without medical help,
If you can relax without liquor,
If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,
……………………..you are probably a dog.
An oldie but it always amuses me.
Love this one and just read it to my husband!
From the comments I’ve read so far, “going to the dogs” may not be a bad thing.
There’s nothing I enjoy more about reading than reading something true. This is the truth, and I loved waking up to it.
Ha! How have I not heard this before? Obviously never having owned a dog has held me back both intellectually and socially.
Friends often tell me that I have the intellectual and social habits of a dog.
Quite philosophical .. then wham … the humor! Well done!!!
Another rim shot moment.
And that’s why I like animals better than most people.
I’ll raise a glass of dog treats to that.
That was enlightening. Now I understand why I like to scratch behind my ear with my foot.
Caution! You may end up with a flea collar.
What a great post! It was the perfect way for me to wind down my night. Funny but also offers food for thought.
Happy to have your day end on a high note.
Gee, I thought you were going to say ‘you are probably a mother.’
Yes, this may apply to mothers as well.
People sometimes call me a mother but not for that reason.
So true! If reincarnation exists, I want to come back as my dog and live the simple life!
…as long as there are no fleas.
I, apparently, am the opposite of a dog. I can’t do any of those things.
Neither can I. Are we related?
At least spiritually, Curmudgeon.
Haha! I’m glad you left the space so we’d have to scroll down to get the answer. Mr. Kipling would be pleased.
I like to tease my readers.
