Why its nice to be a dog No one expects you to take a bath every day. Your friends never expect you to pay for lunch, dinner, or anything else for that matter. When its raining, you can lie around the house all day and never worry about being fired. If it itches, you can reach it. And, no matter what itches, no one is offended if you scratch it in public. You can wear a fur coat and no one thinks youre insensitive. If you grow hair in weird places, no one notices. You never get in trouble for putting your head in a strangers lap Having big feet is considered an asset. If you gain weight, its someone elses fault. No one tells you to wipe your nose because its wet. No matter where you live, you own the place. Your mate never complains because you whine. Puppy love can last.
