Dogging Romance

Reno is a Master at getting what she wants.
 Dogs... do not ruin their sleep worrying about how to keep the objects they have, and to obtain the objects they have not. There is nothing of value they have to bequeath except their love and their faith.

Eugene O'Neill
Tahoe is Daddy's little Tomboy

It is an unfortunate fact that youngsters at summer camp who are most homesick are those that have dogs at home. Jack Herbert
Elleen Atkins








"No hugging, dear. I'm British. We only show affection to dogs and horses. (Eileen Atkins as Jocelyn Dashwood in What A Girl Wants










As companions, dogs are up the evolutionary scale in romance than many women.  An anonymous writer once penned something I remember goes something like this-


Dogs don't cry to get their way. Dogs love all your friends. Dogs love how you sing.

Dogs don't get upset when you run late. They are excited to see you whenever you show up.

Dogs don't get upset if you call them another dog's name and you can play as rough with them as you want.

Dogs don't mind if you give their offspring away

Anyone can get a good looking dog.


If a dog is gorgeous, other dogs don't hate it


Dogs don't shop. Canines never expect gifts. They have no use for flowers, cards or jewelry


Dogs like it when you leave lots of things on the floor


Dogs never need to examine the relationship


A dog's parents never visit.

Dogs love long car trips. The canine understand that following your instincts is more fun  than asking directions


Dogs don't ask you if their jeans make them look fat.

Dogs understand when you raise your voice to get your point across
Dogs don't worry about germs


Dogs don't care if you've had other dogs. 
You never have to wait for a dog, they're ready to go 24 hours a day


Dogs enjoy heavy petting in public

Dogs can't talk. Or criticize. In fact, when you are totally stupid, they often find it amusing.

Need I say more? If romance seems to be on the wane- think- what would your dog do?

Awwwwwww! This is REALLY Wonderful! And so true, pn all counts...! It's better to have a dog by your side than a human...! (well, that may be going too far....though, maybe not....)

When it comes right down to it, I like my dog better than most humans! Reno and Tahoe can get their way on their cute looks alone! Give'um a scratch from me. xo

Ohhh Lydia,

Those little faces are sooo cute! Love the look in their eyes!

As much as I love my grand dogs I am happy when they go home. I do love people (well most people) better than any dog. I do love to sit and cuddle with them and play but when they go home I feel "free". You don't have to worry about stepping on little paws or feeling guilty when eating and they are whining or sitting up waiting for a bite.
I enjoyed the piece you remembered about dogs. Sweet.

XO Trisha

Thanks for visiting my blog and yes I do have fun, at least I try to anyway. Love the dog quotes, I could apply most of those to my cats as well. Unconditional love and constant companionship, where else can you get that these days?

I love the soulful eyes in the dogs you've chosen. That anonymous quote makes me think of how we all would like some unconditional love :-)
