Friday frolics.

Let’s end the week on a light-hearted note.

There have been some pretty serious posts in recent days and I wanted to close off the week with something completely different!

The following was sent to me from Dan earlier on this week. It is socially incorrect and, for the sake of clarity, I don’t subscribe to this form of gender bias in any way.

But it sure is funny!

Why Some Men Have Dogs And Not Wives:


1. The later you are, the more excited your dogs are to see you.


2. Dogs don’t notice if you call them by another dog’s name.


3. Dogs like it if you leave a lot of things on the floor.


4. A dog’s parents never visit.


5. Dogs agree that you have to raise your voice to get your point across.


6. You never have to wait for a dog; they’re ready to go 24 hours a day.


7. Dogs find you amusing when you’re drunk..


8. Dogs like to go hunting and fishing.


9. A dog will not wake you up at night to ask, “If I died, would you get another dog?”


10. If a dog has babies, you can put an ad in the paper and give them away.


11. A dog will let you put a studded collar on it without calling you a pervert.


12. If a dog smells another dog on you, they don’t get mad. They just think it’s interesting.


13. Dogs like to ride in the back of a pickup truck.

And last, but not least:

14. If a dog leaves, it won’t take half of your stuff.

To test this theory:

Lock your wife and your dog in the garage for an hour. Then open it and see who’s happy to see you!


If in any way you were offended by today’s post – just blame Dan!

  1. Paul, As a woman, a wife and a mother, I must say that this sort of thing is – very funny !! Lol.


  2. It’s more than funny, it connects with a deep question. Why can’t we get, give, and expect unconditional love? Are there some unwarranted questions of principle in the way?


      1. I wouldn’t disagree with you at all.

        It was just that today’s post seemed to be offering a “let’s give it all a rest for today” theme. The will to know does need an active and engaged brain that, in turn, needs some “down time” now and then.


  3. I am all for down time, and I did like the post. All I was trying to hint at was that, as far as love was concerned, human would often gain to be more dog-like.


    1. My apologies, in turn. It was just that your “hint” wasn’t visible to me in your original reply. Your sentence, “Are there some unwarranted questions of principle in the way?” came over as stuffy, if you will forgive me for saying that.


      1. To confirm, I was 100% appreciative. I am writing an essay on subtlety today. It does not go thru well in writing. “Downtime” is more than “downtime”, it’s absolutely HYPER necessary. Otherwise, brain seizes up. BTW, cortex is used for higher functions such as walking, running…
