Top 5 Reasons to Live with Man’s Best Friend Instead of Men
27 July 2013
When dogs fart, they don’t laugh. Instead, they look surprised. Faith, my Bernese, looks back at her nether regions and lifts her eyebrows.
Almost every woman I know has suffered when a partner cuts loose in bed and traps her under the covers with the stench. Dogs don’t do that.
4. Watching TV and Movies
Dogs don’t hog the remote control. We can watch what I want, when I want, and how I want. If I need to get another beverage, they’re happy for me to hit PAWS.
The dogs don’t pull the covers off of me.
Instead, Faith sleeps and snores under the bed. Gus has his zone on the guest pillow. Booker moves from the snuggle position to the foot of the bed. And, now, Timmy, the 14-year-old terrier-mix, sleeps with his head on the pillow.
There’s nothing more soothing than the sound of snoring dogs snuggling while they sleep.
Dogs require me to be wholly present. It doesn’t matter if I’m having a bad day or if I’m tired, they need to be fed. They need to be walked. Dogs force me to get out of my head and into the present moment.
Dogs know. Dogs know when to give sloppy kisses. Dogs know when to put their heads in your lap or paws on your knee. Dogs know when you need them to love you.
