My best friend..as I like to call "my love"......... OSCAR!
A Pug is living proof that God has a sense of humor" ~Margot Kaufman -American Writer~
Although I have to say Thank GOD, they are few.. ..when ranting and raving about how badly the world is treating me or my loved ones, my little comedian of a dog just laughs at me ..and then barks while trying to snap and bite at my flailing arms and waving hands... until I have to laugh at myself..... and quit myself from barking! What a silly site I must look to him! His calming nature is beyond his intelligence.
"I loathe people who keep dogs, they are just cowards who haven't got the guts to bite people themselves!" ~August Sprinberg~
He quietly listens to all my whining and griping about how sick and tired I am... he never says a word! well, .. maybe just a snort or two...but there he is, always willing to listen to me! Ears perked! I know he will never tell my secrets or use my confidences against me. Even through his shocked expressions! I believe he is loyal in keeping his silence and will never use my deepest confessions to gain a step up on me. He is true blue, this little furry friend..my little pug!
"Did you ever walk into a room and forget why you walked in? I think that is how dogs spend their lives." ~Sue Murphy~
When asked if my butt looks fat, or if my hair looks fantastic.. what a good friend he is! A few winks of his eye... and I'm all good! . I know he thinks I'm beautiful ...just as I am. I think he is too! ...no mutual judgements are made.
When self-doubt is dragging me down and I turn to ask him, "Is it me? Am I wrong?" He gives me that questioning??? twisting and turning of his head...and then I know! I need to think more on it and I'm sure to come up with the right answers. He doesn't tell me what to do, where I went wrong, or even how to think...he just stands by my side!
"Don't accept your dogs' admiration's conclusive evidence that you are wonderful." ~ Ann Landers~
And when I'm feeling hurt or down ..he just lies contently beside me, giving me warmth and comfort and more than a few doggy kisses ..that tell me ..I'm his best friend too! A friend that will never leave my side.
"When a man's best friend is his dog, that dog has a problem."~ Edward Abbey~
Best of all..when I need love, cudddles or just a morning "Hello there!" ... he is always waiting... with his long drawn out..streetch. 'Cause he wants and needs my love and affection, too! and then he cutely..returns my hello by putting his head on my shoulder and tells me he loves me with his deep "purrrrings"! Isn't it wonderful how friends love to be with each other!
The people who wrote these quotes must have never had man's best friends as a best friend!.. or maybe never felt the love of their dog! Don't you agree? I love my best friend!
