Their little brother said they both were wrong. “They use the dog,” he said, “to help the find the fire hydrants!”


A young grandson asked his grandfather how old he was. The grandpa teasingly replied, “Well, I’m not exactly sure how old I am!” The little boy advised, “You have to look in your underwear Grandpa! Mine says I’m 4-6!” Ah yes, kids nowadays are soooo smart!

And to close with for all dog lovers and a notice to people who visit my home: The dog lives here. You don’t! … If you don’t want dog hair on your clothes, stay off the furniture! … Yes, she has some disgusting habits! So do I and so do you. What’s your point? … Of course she smells like a dog.

Dogs usually are better than kids. They don’t ask for money, they come when called, they never drive your car, they don’t drink or smoke nor worry about the latest fashion. They don’t need a gazillion dollars for college, and if they get pregnant, you can sell the puppies!
