Dogs Love Us


1. The later you are, the more excited your dogs are to see you.


2. Dogs don't notice if you call them by another dog's name.


3. Dogs like it if you leave a lot of things on the floor.


 4. A dog's parents never visit.


5. Dogs agree that you have to raise your voice to get your point across.


6. Dogs find you amusing when you're drunk.


 7. Dogs like to go hunting and fishing.


8. A dog will not wake you up at night to ask, "If I died, would you get another dog?"


9. If a dog has babies, you can put an ad in the paper and give them away.


10. A dog will let you put a studded collar on it without calling you a pervert.


11. If a dog smells another dog on you, they don't get mad. They just think it's interesting.


And last... but not least:

12. If a dog leaves, it won't take half of your stuff.

To test this theory...

Lock your wife and your dog in the garage for an hour...

Then open it and see who's happy to see you.

Always a Downside...

An artist asked a gallery owner if there had been any interest in her paintings that were on display.

"Well, I have good news and bad news," the owner responded.

"The good news is that a gentleman noticed your work and wondered if it would appreciate in value after your death. I told him it would and he bought all 10 of your paintings."

Uh oh!

Reasons Relationships Fail

Interesting article…I do believe there has been much discussion here in blogland regarding these points. Winking smile  They do itemized the points nicely.

3 Reasons the Modern Relationship Continues to Fail
How many of us out there have had parents who split up when they were young? Maybe your parents are currently in the process of getting a divorce or splitting up. Hopefully, you’re part of the lucky group of people whose parents have managed to stay together, but even if you are, I guarantee you at least know someone whose parents are no longer together.

The divorce rate in North America has been pretty steady for sometime, with about 50% of marriages ending in divorce. That’s half of all marriages. Half!

As humans, we’re always growing. When we have a partner, ideally we grow together with them, but oftentimes we simply grow apart. Sometimes people split for shallow reasons like money or status, but at the heart of most divisions are deeply-rooted problems people don’t fully become aware of until the relationship has ended. And by then, it’s too late.

Here are three solid reasons that so many relationships fail in a modern landscape, so that you might keep you and your partner happily together:

Failing to communicate or express how you’re truly feeling inside 
Communication is such a big part of relationships that it’s often the reason so many of them fall apart unexpectedly. It is the single biggest part of a relationship simply because we’re not capable of reading each other’s minds. We can only act on the information we have, so when our partners do not communicate how they’re feeling or what they’re thinking, we’re left trying to figure out just what the hell is wrong, and oftentimes we’re wrong in our assumptions.

When we actively choose not to communicate with our partners when we’re feeling slighted or upset with their behaviors, we build up resentment for them that we may or may not notice at first. This resentment accumulates over time until we reach the point of not even wanting to be around that person. Then, once you split up, a wave of relief rushes over you because that burden of resentment has been lifted.

Chances are, if you had just said what you were feeling in the first place, you wouldn’t be in this situation now. Tell your partner when you’re not happy with them so that you can work together to fix whatever is wrong. If you cannot fix it, then it might be best to simply move on without each other.

Being in love with an idea, not a person 
For most people, the idea of being in love tends to be more exciting and alluring than the actuality of being in love. They seek out love because they think they need it in their life to be happy. So, they often choose to accept weak forms of love that aren’t truly rooted in love. These are people who hold onto dysfunctional partners or toxic people simply because the idea of not being loved is too scary to fathom.

Hearing someone else say that they love you is heartwarming and intoxicating. We start to seek out that feeling all the time. But, this becomes dangerous when we begin to live for that feeling instead of actually taking the next step of developing a meaningful, soulful connection with a person. True love is not simply saying “I love you.” It’s showing that person how much you love them and how you will always be there for them no matter what.

Not trusting your partner 
Trust is something that every relationship needs in order to thrive. When partners do not trust each other, they constantly worry and fear that the other will hurt them in some way. These worries create an anxious atmosphere in the mind that corrupts each and every thought you have, to the point of you making up the most ridiculous, far-fetched scenarios of them hurting you. Not to mention, your partner suffers because they’re constantly having to defend their actions and prove that they are worthy of your trust.

What does a lack of trust signify to your partner? That you’re incredibly insecure. And that’s okay! Everyone is insecure about something or another. You can turn your insecurities into growth and healing by being open with your partner about them. On the other side, it’s important to be able to recognize when your partner is feeling insecure, too. Maybe they’re not feeling loved by you or are still holding onto damages from a previous relationship, in which case you can offer to help them work through it so that both of you benefit in the end.

Lack of trust is a sign that they don’t feel as though they would be able to handle the end of your relationship should it come to that. The emotional weight would literally crush them, and that’s terrifying. To fix this, communicating these feelings and emotions is vital. But even more important is understanding that your relationship will only flourish if you can be confident in your vulnerability and transparency.

Zen Phrases for Enlightenment and Laughter

Have shared some of these before but some are new…enjoy!   Winking smile  


Not every wisdom has to be some profound train of thought that evokes a deep emotion or understanding toward something.  A notion that is illustrated perfectly by these 22 zen phrases, each of which captures the lighthearted, humorous side of a life that gets dark sometimes.
  1. Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me either. Just pretty much leave me alone.
  2. The journey of a thousand miles begins with a broken fan belt and leaky tire.
  3. It’s always darkest before dawn. So if you’re going to steal your neighbor’s newspaper, that’s the time to do it.
  4. Don’t be irreplaceable. If you can’t be replaced, you can’t be promoted.
  5. Always remember that you’re unique. Just like everyone else.
  6. Never test the depth of the water with both feet.
  7. If you think nobody cares if you’re alive, try missing a couple of car payments.
  8. Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.
  9. If at first you don’t succeed, skydiving is not for you.
  10. Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish, and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day.
  11. If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.
  12. If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything.
  13. Some days you’re the bug; some days you’re the windshield.
  14. Everyone seems normal until you get to know them.
  15. The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.
  16. A closed mouth gathers no foot.
  17. Duct tape is like “The Force.” It has a light side and a dark side, and it holds the universe together.
  18. There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works.
  19. Generally speaking, you aren’t learning much when your lips are moving.
  20. Experience is something you don’t get until just after you need it.
  21. Never miss a good chance to shut up.
  22. Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.
