Thursday Thoughts: Don’t let sleeping dogs lie.

After dog sitting for a week, I have learned a few things.

  • Comfort for you is different from the comfort the dog has because it is hard to get up when you have a dog curled up on your lap dead asleep.
  • There are two kinds of hungry. I’ll eat my food hungry and I want what you are having hungry, the latter usually occurs after the refusal of the former.
  • To get a lazy dog off the couch, pretend to sneak out.
  • Dogs know a lot of words, but don’t know how to use theirs based on the blank stare when asked for the third time, “What do you want?”
  • White dogs will gravitate to the dirtiest puddle.
  • Dogs are funny.
  • There is unconditional love in the world.

What did Charlie Brown say? Happiness is a warm dog?

You got that right, Chuck.
