My Dog’s Secret

John The Aussie

My dog sleeps about 20 hours a day.

He has his food prepared for him.

He can eat whenever he wants.

His meals are provided at no cost to him.

He visits the Doctor once a year for his checkup, and again during the year if any medical needs arise.

For this he pays nothing, and nothing is required of him.

He lives in a nice neighborhood in a house that is much larger than he needs, but he is not required to do any upkeep.

He makes no contribution to the running or maintenance of the house.

If he makes a mess, someone else cleans it up.

He has his choice of luxurious places to sleep.

He receives these accommodations absolutely free.

He is living like a King, and has absolutely no expenses whatsoever.

All of his costs are picked up by others who go out, work hard, and earn a living every day.

I was just thinking about all this, and suddenly it hit me like a brick in the head.

 I think my dog is a REFUGEE!

  1. For the record, I got no problems with refugees . I do however think our process system is to slow.

  2. In fairness though, out of all the pets, dogs are the most demonstrably appreciative of what they are given.

  3. I want to be your dog.

  4. YOU are the refugee – of your dog’s unconditional love! His unconditional love is worth more than a king’s ransom.

  5. That’s all well and good but I want to know the secret of how she managed to climb aboard that inflatable thingy and stay there!

  6. John, you bad thing! 😉

    I think you’re just jealous of your dog. Think of all the wonderful things he does for you and your family. He is there to make you. To annoy you by doing silly things which you will later laugh at. Give you exercise. Give you unwavering love and affection… I could go on… 😉 Is that your dog in the picture? He is gorgeous! What’s his name? 🙂

    • Nah my dog chews everything that floats on water and is much younger. Her name is Ebony. Same type of labrador though.

      First dog in 10 years since my last loyal mate. He was a Golden Retriever cross Labrador named Sam..

      • I keep thinking that I’d love a dog… but there are a lot of downsides, I guess. If I ever have children (and I hope I do) then I would imagine getting a dog then wouldn’t be so bad, it’d be an extra child, right? 😉
        We had a black lab and he was just brilliant.

      • Pup after kidlets… For various scientific and psychological reasons that I can’t remember.

  7. Sounds much like my kids. Perhaps I should have bypasses breeding people and got a puppy instead.

    • Nah, a puppy will always be a teenager. Kids at least will provide you a home when you retire, and the dog can come with.

      Best of both worlds….

Go on, give us a yarn or two, mate.
