Small, Priceless Things That are Great About Having a Dog

1.  I have a built in alarm system.  Lola is not a barker but when she hears a strange noise or somebody knocking on the door, you can bet she lets me know. I always kid if anybody came into the house who was not suppose to she would like them to death. But I know Lola would be there to protect me if need be.

Don't worry, I'll protect you

2.  I have an automatic vacuum cleaner.  I love my Dyson and it is great for the hair, dirt and dust, but nothing beats Lola when it comes to food falling on the ground. It is cleaned up in a matter of seconds.

3.  No matter how bad my day is Lola is there to put a smile on my face and give me a sloppy kiss.  That tail wagging back and forth when I walk in after a hard day is the best cure.

4.  I have my own personal gym and trainer.  She is my treadmill when we go for walks everyday, and when we play with a rope she has jaws of steel and I can pick her up, so she is my weight lifting system too.  I am not sure if Lola is cheaper than a gym, but at least I do not have to pay additional money for my gym.

Keep you pace up Ma

5.  She is a great to cuddle with when it is warm or cold.  It is like I have a built in blanket wherever I go.  And even better, she is more than happy to keep the bed warm when I get out of it.

I know there has to be more.  What are some things that are great about your pets?


  1. Awwww great post - Lola is a great dog for sure!!!

    I dont have anything nice to say about my due today - they woke me up 45mins early today - so I was up at 4am grrr. :)

  2. Well for one they are great built in alarm clocks :)

    Pets cure depression better than any medicine because they make you get outside and you are never alone.

  4. That is so sweet!
    Lola is the best security system there is!!

    Until I got Leroy I always said that dogs were like kids, they didn't talk back. Leroy put a damper on that theroy:)

  5. I absolutely agree with all of these :) Especially the vacuum cleaner part LOL - any time I drop food on the floor, I say, "that's what dogs are for".

  6. Great post! The vacuum cleaner thing isn't always so great...Riley ate a pill one time and we had to go to the Emergency Vet...$$$!

  7. Every single thing you mentioned is absolutely true about dogs especially the alarm clock part. I can count on Daisy to wake me up at 6:30 on the dot full of energy and ready for her morning walk! Glad your Lola has a very thankful mom to share her days and nights with!

  8. I like the escort part. All the people I'm scared of are scared of me when I'm walking Miss M and Mr. B.

  9. Lola is super even if she sleeps on the floor with blankies BOL
