I'M STILL HERE

I stood beside your bed last night
I came to have a peek
I could see that you were crying
You found it hard to sleep

I whined to you softly
As you brushed away a tear
"It's me, I haven't left you,
I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here."

I was close to you at breakfast
I watched you pour the tea
You were thinking of the many times
Your hands reached down to me

I was with you at the shops today
Your arms were getting sore
I longed to take your parcels
I wish I could do more

I was with you at my grave today
You tend it with such care
I want to reassure you
That I'm not lying there

I walked with you toward the house
As you fumbled for your key
I gently put my paw on you
I smiled and said "It's me."

You looked so very tired
And sank into a chair
I tried so hard to let you know
That I was standing there

It's possible for me to be
So near you everyday
To say to you with certainty
"I never went away."

You sat there very quietly
Then you smiled, I think you knew
In the stillness of that evening
I was very close to you.

The day is over...
I smile and watch you yawning
And say "Good night, God bless,
I'll see you in the morning."

And when the time is right
For you to cross the brief divide
I'll rush across to greet you
And we'll stand side by side

I have so many things to show you
There is so much for you to see
Be patient, live your journey out
And then come home to be with me

We folk who have, "just a dog," will appreciate

I was sent this in my email I do not know who wrote it but it made me think of my Cory so Much! What she meant to me, what she gave to, how she was always there no matter what! I miss her so bad, and any body who has a dog , and knows the love they give us, know they are not (Just A Dog !) I hope you like it Terry Corys Mom!



We folk who have, "just a dog," will appreciate this piece that I found in my mail this morning. I read it to my two, "Just Dogs," and they were dancing with joy. Oh, they didn't understand it, but just me talking to them gave us all complete joy. I LOVE my two Aussie's.....and they in return give nothing less than, total devotion. (sob)

From time to time, people tell me, lighten up, it's "just a dog," or, that's a lot of money for "just a dog." They don't understand the distance traveled, the time spent, or the costs involved for "just a dog." Some of my proudest moments have come about with, "just a dog." Many hours have passed and my only company was, "just a dog," but I did not once feel slighted.

Some of my saddest moments have been brought about by, "just a dog," and in those days of darkness, the gentle touch of, "just a dog," gave me comfort and reason to overcome the day. If you, too, think, it's "just a dog," then you will probably understand phases like, just a friend, just a sunrise, or just a promise. "just a dog," brings into my life the very essence of friendship, trust, and pure unbridled joy.

"just a dog," brings out the compassion and patience that make me a better person. Because of, "just a dog," I will rise early, take long walks and look longingly to the future. So for me and folks like me, it's not, "just a dog," but an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future, the fond memories of the past, and the pure joy of the moment.

"just a dog," brings out what's good in me, and diverts my thoughts away from myself and the worries of the day. I hope that someday they can understand that it's not, "just a dog," but the thing that gives me humanity, and keeps me from being, just a man. So the next time you hear the phrase, "just a dog," just smile, because they just don't understand.

 

An Open Letter to My Pets (Author Unknown)

An Open Letter to My Pets (Author Unknown)

Dear Dogs and Cats, The dishes with the paw print are yours and
contain your food. The other dishes are mine and contain my food. Please
note, placing a paw print in the middle of my plate and food does not
stake a claim for it becoming your food and dish, nor do I find that
aesthetically pleasing in the slightest.

The stairway was not designed by NASCAR and is not a racetrack.
Beating me to the bottom is not the object. Tripping me doesn't
help because I fall faster than you can run.

I cannot buy anything bigger than a king sized bed. I am very
sorry about this. Do not think I will continue sleeping on the couch to
ensure your comfort. Dogs and cats can actually curl up in a ball when
they sleep. It is ! not necessary to sleep perpendicular to each other
stretched out to the fullest extent possible. I also know that sticking
tails straight out and having tongues hanging out the other end to
maximize space is nothing but sarcasm.

For the last time, there is not a secret exit from the bathroom.
If by some miracle I beat you there and manage to get the door shut, it
is not necessary to claw, whine, meow, try to turn the knob or get your
paw under the edge and try to pull the door open. I must exit through
the same door I entered. Also, I have been using the bathroom for years
--canine or feline attendance is not mandatory.

The proper order is kiss me, then go smell the other dog or
cat's butt. I cannot stress this enough!

To pacify you, my dear pets, I have posted the following message
on our front door:

All Non-Pet Owners Who Visit & Like to Complain About Our Pets:
1. They live here. You don't.
2. If you don't want their hair on your clothes, stay off the
furniture.
(That's why they call it "fur"nature.)
3. I like my pets a lot better than I like most people.
4. To you, it's an animal. To me, he/she is an adopted
son/daughter who is short, hairy, walks on all fours and doesn't speak
clearly.

Remember: Dogs and cats are better than kids because they:
1. Eat less
2. Don't ask for money all the time
3. Are easier to train
4. Usually come when called
5. Never drive your car
6. Don't hang out with drug-using friends
7. Don't smoke or drink
8. Don't worry about having to buy the latest fashions
9. Don't wear your clothes
10. Don't need a gazillion dollars for college, and
11. If they get pregnant, you can sell their children

Oh my Cory Hi !
I miss you so much, my heart still aches so! I still think I hear your soft bark letting me know I need to take you for a walk. And when I take Gizmo and Shelby over to the lake for a swim, I always sit there and think of you as I throw the ball into the water for them to bring back. It just not the same with out you hear, I still just can not believe you are really gone! Your sister Shelby is like me, and still looking for you! She still is not to fond of Gizmo, I guess she just really misses you, and all the fun we all had together! I know you are no longer in pain up there, and that you are looking down on me, and keeping us safe. But I still miss you!I wish I could have done more for you, I wish I could have kept you with me, but only if your were healthy! Tell God to give you a good tummy rub for me, I know how much you loved them. And maybe some of the angels can throw you some balls and frizzebes too! I know there must be a big beautifull lake up there for you to go swimming in, like you loved to do hear on earth! And ask God if you can sleep with him ever so offten, tell him you always made me feel so safe, and like all things were right in this world! So if God is having a bad day, with all that is going on down hear, and needs a smile on his face, tell him to give you a call, I know you with all you tricks, and how you can be so loveable will surely put a smile on his face! Well my my love, Tell God hi for me, and all my other babys up there, and Cory my friend Maddie just lost her baby Tabba cat, please help and watch over her, and tell her me and Coco Mocha are thinking of her, and we will keep praying for her mom! Love Mom Terry

Buy A Dog

If you want someone who will bring you the paper without first tearing it apart to remove the sports section
Buy a dog.




If you want someone willing to make a fool of himself simply over the joy of seeing you
Buy a dog.



If you want someone who will eat whatever you put in front of him and never says its not quite as good as his mother made it
Buy a dog




If you want someone always willing to go out, at any hour, for as long and wherever you want
Buy a dog.

If you want someone who will never touch the remote, doesn't care about football, and can sit next to you as you watch romantic movies
Buy a dog.

If you want someone who is content to get up on your bed just to warm your feet and whom you can push off if he snores
Buy a dog.





If you want someone who never criticizes what you do, doesn't care if you are pretty or ugly, fat or thin, young or old, who acts as if every word you say is especially worthy of listening to, and loves you unconditionally, perpetually
Buy a dog.



But, on the other hand, If you want someone who will never come when you call, ignores you totally when you come home, leaves hair all over the place, walks all over you, runs around all night and only comes home to eat and sleep, and acts as if your entire existence is solely to ensure his happiness...




Then.....................................






Buy a cat!

LEASH: A strap which attaches to your collar, enabling you to lead your person where you want him/her to go.

DOG BED: any soft, clean surface, such as the white bedspread in the guest room or the newly upholstered couch in the living room.

DROOL: Is what you do when your persons have food and you don't. To do this properly you must sit as close as you can and look sad and let the drool fall to the floor, or better yet, on their laps.

SNIFF: A social custom to use when you greet other dogs. Place your nose as close as you can to the other dog's rear end and inhale deeply, repeat several times, or until your person makes you stop.

GARBAGE CAN: A container which your neighbors put out once a week to test your ingenuity. You must stand on your hind legs and try to push the lid off with your nose. If you do it right you are rewarded with margarine wrappers to shred, beef bones to consume and moldy crusts of bread.

BICYCLES: Two-wheeled exercise machines, invented for dogs to control body fat. To get maximum aerobic benefit, you must hide behind a bush and dash out, bark loudly and run alongside for a few yards; the person then swerves and falls into the bushes, and you prance away.

DEAFNESS: This is a malady which affects dogs when their person want them in and they want to stay out. Symptoms include staring blankly at the person, then running in the opposite direction, or lying down.

THUNDER: This is a signal that the world is coming to an end. Humans remain amazingly calm during thunderstorms, so it is necessary to warn them of the danger by trembling uncontrollably, panting, rolling your eyes wildly, and following at their heels.

WASTEBASKET: This is a dog toy filled with paper, envelopes, and old candy wrapper. When you get bored, turn over the basket and strew the papers all over the house until your person comes home

SOFAS: Are to dogs like napkins are to people. After eating it is polite to run up and down the front of the sofa and wipe your whiskers clean.

BATH: This is a process by which the humans drench the floor, walls and themselves. You can help by shaking vigorously and frequently.

LEAN: Every good dogs's response to the command "sit !", especially if your person is dressed for an evening out. Incredibly effective before black-tie events.

BUMP: The best way to get your human's attention when they are drinking a fresh cup of coffee or tea.

GOOSE BUMP: A maneuver to use as a last resort when the Regular Bump doesn't get the attention you require.....especially effective when combined with The Sniff. See above.

LOVE: Is a feeling of intense affection, given freely and without restriction. The best way you can show your love is to wag your tail. If you're lucky, a human will love you in return

 

HOW DOGS CAME TO BE

HOW DOGS CAME TO BE



A newly discovered chapter in the Book of Genesis has provided the answer to "Where do pets come from?"

Adam and Eve said, "Lord, when we were in the garden, you walked with us every day. Now we do not see you any more. We are lonesome here, and it is difficult for us to remember how much you love us."

And God said, I will create a companion for you that will be with you and who will be a reflection of my love for you, so that you will love me even when you cannot see me. Regardless of how selfish or childish or unlovable you may be, this new companion will accept you as you are and will love you as I do, in spite of yourselves."

And God created a new animal to be a companion for Adam and Eve.

And it was a good animal.

And God was pleased.

And the new animal was pleased to be with Adam and Eve and he wagged his tail.
And Adam said, "Lord, I have already named all the animals in the Kingdom and I cannot think of a name for this new animal."

And God said, " I have created this new animal to be a reflection of my love for you, his name will be a reflection of my own name, and you will call him
DOG."


And Dog lived with Adam and Eve and was a companion to them and loved them.

And they were comforted.

And God was pleased.

And Dog was content and wagged his tail.

After a while, it came to pass that an angel came to the Lord and said, "Lord, Adam and Eve have become filled with pride. They strut and preen like peacocks and they believe they are worthy of adoration. Dog has indeed taught them that they are loved, but perhaps too well."

And God said, I will create for them a companion who will be with them and who will see them as they are. The companion will remind them of their limitations, so they will know that they are not always worthy of adoration."

And God created CAT to be a companion to Adam and Eve.


And Cat would not obey them. And when Adam and Eve gazed into Cat's eyes, they were reminded that they were not the supreme beings.

And Adam and Eve learned humility.

And they were greatly improved.


And God was pleased

And Dog was happy.


And Cat didn't give a POOP one way or the other.

 

A man and his dog were walking along a road.

A man and his dog were walking along a road. The man was enjoying the

scenery, when it suddenly occurred to him that he was dead.

He remembered dying, and that the dog walking beside him had been dead

for years.

He wondered where the road was leading them.

After a while, they came to a high, white stone wall along one side of

the road. It looked like fine marble. At the top of a long hill, it was

broken by a tall arch that glowed in the sunlight.

When he was standing before it he saw a magnificent gate in the arch

that looked like mother-of-pearl, and the street that led to the gate

looked like pure gold. He and the dog walked toward the gate, and as he

got closer, he saw a man at a desk

to one side.

When he was close enough, he called out, "Excuse me,

where are we?"

"This is Heaven, sir," the man answered.

"Wow! Would you happen to have some water?" the man

asked.

"Of course, sir. Come right in, and I'll have some ice water

brought right up."

The man gestured, and the gate began to open.

"Can my friend," gesturing toward his dog, "come in, too?" the

traveler asked.

"I'm sorry, sir, but we don't accept pets."

The man thought a moment and then turned back toward the road

and continued the way he had been going with his dog.

After another long walk, and at the top of another long hill, he came

to a dirt road leading through a farm gate that looked as if it had

never been closed. There was no

fence.

As he approached the gate, he saw a man inside, leaning

against a tree and reading a book.

"Excuse me!" he called to the man.

"Do you have any water?"

"Yeah, sure, there's a pump over there, come

on in."

"How about my friend here?" the traveler gestured to the

dog.

"There should be a bowl by the pump."

They went through the gate, and sure enough, there was an old-fashioned

hand pump with a bowl beside it.

The traveler filled the water bowl and took a long

drink himself, then he gave some to the dog.

When they were full, he and the dog walked back toward the man who was

standing by the tree.

"What do you call this place?" the traveler asked.

"This is Heaven," he answered.

"Well, that's confusing," the traveler said. "The man down the road

said that was Heaven, too."

"Oh, you mean the place with the gold street and pearly gates?

Nope. That's hell."

"Doesn't it make you mad for them to use your

name like that?"

"No, we're just happy that they screen out the folks

who would leave their best friends behind."

Sooooooooooooo.........You are all welcome @ my water bowl any time.

If a dog was the teacher you would learn stuff like:

When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.
On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.
When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
Be loyal. Never pretend to be something you're not.
If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.

 

equal opportunity employer

equal opportunity employer




A local business was looking for office help. They put a sign in the window saying:

"HELP WANTED. Must be able to type, must be good with a computer and must be bilingual. We are an Equal Opportunity Employer."

A short time afterwards, a dog trotted up to the window, saw the sign and
went inside. He looked at the receptionist and wagged his tail, then walked over to the sign, looked at it and whined.

Getting the idea, the receptionist got the office manager. The office manager looked at the dog and was surprised, to say the least. However,
the dog looked determined, so he led him into the office. Inside, the dog
jumped up on the chair and stared at the manager.

The manager said, "I can't hire you. The sign says you have to be able to
type."

The dog jumped down, went to the typewriter and proceeded to type out a perfect letter. He took out the page and trotted over to the manager and
gave it to him, then jumped back on the chair.

The manager was stunned, but then told the dog, "The sign says you have to be good with a computer."

The dog jumped down again and went to the computer. The dog proceeded to demonstrate his expertise with various programs and produced a sample spreadsheet and database and presented them to the manager.

By this time the manager was totally dumbfounded! He looked at the dog and said, "I realize that you are a very intelligent dog and have some
interesting abilities. However, I still can't give you the job."

The dog jumped down and went to a copy of the sign and put his paw on the part about being an Equal Opportunity Employer.

The manager said, "Yes, but the sign also says that you have to be bilingual."

The dog looked at him straight in the face and said, "Meow."
