Dog Heaven

Our dog loves Jerusalem. She's in Dog Heaven -- a place full of parks and other dogs, a place overrun with cats which are clearly placed there by the Almighty for her to chase if we would only let her off the leash! And best of all, we're living in a smaller den with only two rooms, which means she's closer to her pack all the time; we walk with her more often, sometimes three and four times a day to get her out of the apartment; since neither of us is working right now, we take her almost everywhere with us instead of leaving her at home while we work.

One of my best friends forwarded this to me and if you're a dog lover, you'll like it also. If you're not, it at least explains the bond between those of us who love our dogs:

Dog Philosophy

The reason a dog has so many friends is that he wags his tail instead of his tongue.

Don't accept your dog's admiration as conclusive evidence that you are wonderful.-Ann Landers

There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.
-Ben Williams

A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.
-Josh Billings

The average dog is a nicer person than the average person.
-Andy Rooney

We give dogs time we can spare, space we can spare and love we can spare.
And in return, dogs give us their all. It's the best deal man has ever made.

-M. Acklam

Dogs love their friends and bite their enemies, quite unlike people, who are incapable of pure love and always have to mix love and hate.
-Sigmund Freud

I wonder if other dogs think poodles are members of a weird religious cult.
-Rita Rudner

A dog teaches a boy fidelity, perseverance, and to turn around three times before lying down.-Robert Benchley

Anybody who doesn't know what soap tastes like never washed a dog.-Franklin P. Jones

If your dog is fat, you aren't getting enough exercise.

My dog is worried about the economy because Alpo is up to $3.00 a can. That's almost $21.00 in dog money.-Joe Weinstein

Ever consider what our dogs must think of us? I mean, here we come back from a grocery store with the most amazing haul, chicken, pork, half a cow. They must think we're the greatest hunters on earth!-Anne Tyler

If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you; that is the principal difference between a dog and a man.

-Mark Twain

You can say any foolish thing to a dog, and the dog will give you a look that says, 'Wow, you're right! I never would've thought of that!'
- Dave Barry

Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.
-Roger Caras

If you think dogs can't count, try putting three dog biscuits in your pocket and then give him only two of them.
-Phil Pastoret

My goal in life is to be as good a person as my dog already thinks I am.

LOVE THE SAYINGS!!! I am in full agreement, that if you can spend a lot of time with your 'furry baby' then spend all the time you can...dogs are such a blessing, really, I love all animals.

Your dog is adorable.

My family's dog died last year and we miss him so much, but the "Philosophy" definitely still raise a smile...

jilly--you know exactly what I'm talking about--you're little guy is so cute!

tafka pp--I'm so sorry, hon! We've lost 4 cats in our marriage to old age, but I haven't lost a dog since I was a kid--and it feels like losing a best friend. Our girl is still frisky, and still has years to go, although I'm starting to see some white around the muzzle....she's a sweetheart--if you're ever down in Baka, she has coffee with us at Kulo in the mornings on Derech Bet Lechem! She loves to meet people who coo over her and pet her....
