Dogs as Pets

I always had a dog as a pet when I was growing up. Everything that is said about a dog is true, they give unconditional love, they wag their tail and bark with joy when you get home, they cuddle up to be petted, lift your spirits when you're having a bad day and yes, sometimes they are a pain in the butt.
This year's Christmas celebration had no shortage of the four legged furry creatures. John had basset "Buck", Ben had beagle "Maggy" and Sarah, Ben's friend, had dachshund "Wiener" and Schnauzer "Wilson". For the most part they provided us with lots of laughs.
One popular movie out now is "Marley and Me." We saw it last night, good movie, by the way.
Although my dog owning days are over, by choice, I am reminded about the joys of dog ownership and am happy for those who have these animals in their lives.
