I ran across this Dogs Letter and wanted to share it, since many I’m connected with are dog owners. It was sent to me years ago by a friend and I’ve never been able track down an author to this. As the owner of 3 large dogs, I can relate to most of these. I hope this gives you a good laugh to start your day.

Dogs letter

Dear Dogs,

When I say to move, it means go someplace else, not switch positions with each other so there are still two dogs in the way.

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 it 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 larger than a King size bed. I am very sorry about this. Do not think I will continue to sleep on the couch to ensure your comfort. Watch videos of dogs sleeping, they can actually curl up in a ball. 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 used is nothing but doggy sarcasm.

My compact discs are not miniature Frisbees.

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, and 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. In addition, I have been using the bathroom for years, canine attendance is not mandatory.

And finally, the proper order is to kiss me, and then go smell the other dog’s behinds. I cannot stress this enough. It would be such a simple change for you guys to make.
