1.) They don’t give you bad financial advice. In fact, my dog has never interfered with my finances or asked for any gift larger than a slice of pizza.
2.) They never ask if they can date your single friends or if you can set them up with someone. So you never have to worry about how to handle the situation if you’re walking through the park one day and run into other dogs they’ve previously dated.
3.) They don’t brag about how much money they make or what kind of car they drive.
4.) They don’t try to push their belief system on you. Can you imagine your dog scolding you for flushing your poop away instead of rolling in it? I didn’t think so.
5.) They know how to eat and never refuse food because they’re “on a diet.”
6.) They don’t pretend to love work unless they really do love it.
7.) They always tell you that your food is great, no matter what your cooking skills. And they believe it, too.
8.) They’re never too busy for you. Whether you want to play with them or hold them while you cry. Dogs know how to be there with you.
9.) When they’re dying they don’t make demands, try to manipulate people, or make anyone feel guilty over relationships. They don’t ask for memorials or worry about how you’ll remember them. They only ask that you be there with them when they pass away. That’s why I respect them and wish I could be more like them. They know how to love.
10.) They know what’s important and that’s what they focus their lives upon: relationships.
