It amazes me how some people feel that when they come to our house, they object to our dogs sitting on the couch, or the bed. It doesn't occur to them that the house belongs more the dogs who have stayed here all their lives, than to them, who are just guests! This poem is for them...

DOGS LIVE HERE

If you don't want to be greeted with paws and swinging tails don't come inside because dogs live here. If you don't like the feel of a cold nose or a wet tongue, don't come inside because dogs live here. If you don't want to step over many scattered toys, don't come inside because dogs live here. If you think that a home ought to smell of perfume, don't come inside because dogs live here. If you don't mind all of this, you will be instantly loved when you come inside, because dogs live here. ---Author Unknown---
