Why Some Men Have Dogs And Not Wives

The Editor & Miz Mary went off fishing this weekend with friends. And didn’t take me with them. Be that as it may…through genuinely unfair…I was left to come up with a column for this week.

The following is offered with a grain of truth but purely for humorous purposes from for my canine friends. Do not read anything into it…unless, of course, it has some application to you.

Why are dogs better than wives?

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

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

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

•A dog’s parents never visit.

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

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

•Dogs find you amusing when you’re drunk.

•Dogs like to go hunting and fishing.

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

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

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

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

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

And …

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