  1. Dogs are……..

    non-stop, four-legged followers of a hand that is patting heads and smells like a bacony goodness breakfast might just be possible.

    smiling little entertainers, who make a slobbery ball appear from thin air just like a magician.

    the only best friend you’ll tolerate bad breath, matted hair, and body stench from, then wanna’ go take a selfie with.

  2. Dogs are :
    -the go to happy place in your heart
    -the only creature that loves you more than themselves
    -the definition of loyalty
    -a cold wet nose with a heart of gold
    -your biggest fan!

  3. “Dogs are __________.”

    …a four-legged version of what this guy used to be
    chompin’ at the bit, runnin’ wild off a leash

    …rockin’ and rollin’ over for more

    …four-legged security guards

    …like waggin’ little thumbs-up signs

    …like owning shares in the perfect company

  4. .. are small furry bundles who join our family and grow to be shedding anchors of attention
    .. are our reminder of loyalty and love
    .. learn fast — then teach us what they want
    .. are predictable…, are protectors, comforters, companions, consolers, and mood changers — not bad for a small four legged package
