Just The Four Of Us

“A House is never Lonely where a Loving Labrador waits”

“He is your Friend, your Partner, Your Dog. You are his Life, his Love, his Leader. He will be Yours, Faithful and True, to the last Beat of his Heart”

My daughter follows a twitter account by the name of “Thoughts of Dog.” Today she sent me the latest tweet that said the following:

The small neighbor human goes back to school tomorrow. So we spent the whole day together doing our favorite things. I understand education is important but here’s the thing. So am I.

Even though I am am not the “small neighbor human” I am my dog, cat and rabbits owner and I have been on summer break for two months (I am a teacher). My lab and I have gone on many rides, played out in the yard and at times, just sat on the couch pondering our existence. Even though it will be a sad day tomorrow for both of us, I know that when I get home tomorrow, my friend will be waiting for me at the front door, happy that I have returned.

You can’t ask for more than that.

 

A Summer Ride

“Happiness starts with a wet nose and ends with a tail.”

“Once you have had a wonderful dog, a life without one is a life diminished.”

Our dog Jase absolutely loves to go for rides. Of course, during the summer, he expects one at least once a day. If he doesn’t get one, he lets you know it! Watching that tongue flop in the wind from my side-view mirror makes every trip worth it.

What a great dog.

The Zoo

I live in a house that seems like a zoo,

A rabbit, a cat and a dog form the crew.

They all get along, it’s a strange sight to see,

The bunny and cat, they frolic with glee!

So, the two of them together, they find themselves frisky,

Should we let the dog play? Or is it just to damn risky?

We love you my friend, but you’re really to large,

To let you come play, being as big as a barge.

So that leaves him alone, our ninety pound Jase,

To join in the fun, to be part of the chase.

But when it’s all over and the day it is done,

They all love each other and all live as one!
