Doggie Wisdom

I have a little (well, if 42 pounds is little) English Cocker Spaniel named Harry...he's three years old and if you ask anyone else, Harry is my Grandma's buddy and therefore, I am simply his food provider, chauffeur, and walker. He looks like a bad ass with his mohawk, but really, he's a cat trapped in a dog's body.

Here's some wisdom my friend, Chelsea had blogged from her step-puppy, Obie (for O'Bannion from Dazed and Confused, not Obi-Wan Kenobi as David, her fiance, is quick to correct) for a guide to life and I totally agree: (My comments are in italics as you know I always like to put my two cents in.)

Aspects of Life on which you should never compromise:
  • Eating carbs. Basically, you will be happier with carbs. (I tried the Atkins diet once, I was also close to going postal on EVERYONE.)
  • A good groomer is worth a little extra dough ;) (I'm a blonde naturally, but not the pretty color my stylist can maintain...and there's no way a box could make this happen at home.)
  • Your church. If you're not feelin' a certain church, don't stay just for the sake of saying you were in church. Find one that resonates with you! Or maybe another spiritual route is better for you. God knows anyway, so keep it real! (I love the's his fan club that can get on my nerves.)
  • Us. The dogs. Love our owners, you gotta love us. Simple, yes? (Loving unconditionally and without boundaries opens you to receive that same love in return. Pure and simple.)
  • Never underestimate a clean house and a clear mind! Don't compromise by letting your mind and home get cluttered. (Always know where to find clean underwear and your keys.)
  • Stick your ground. Even when it is not always well received. (Harry has run of the house and will push you out of his space.)
  • Follow your instincts. If I think a bone isn't stinky enough...I won't eat it! Something is wrong with it. (You know when something feels right or doesn't feel right. Listen to what's inside you, not what someone's telling you to do.)
