    If it itches, you can reach it. And no matter where it itches, no one will be offended if you scratch it in public.

    No one notices if you have hair growing in weird places as you get older.

    Personal hygiene is a blast: No one expects you to take a bath every day, and you don't even have to comb your own hair.

    Having a wet nose is considered a sign of good health.

    No one thinks less of you for passing gas. Some people might actually think you're cute.

    Who needs a big home entertainment system? A bone or an old shoe can entertain you for hours.

    You can spend hours just smelling stuff.

    No one ever expects you to pay for lunch or dinner. You never have to worry about table manners, and if you gain weight, it's someone else's fault.

    It doesn't take much to make you happy. You're always excited to see the same old people. All they have to do is leave the room for five minutes and come back.

    Every garbage can looks like a cold buffet to you.

    sigh....now I am REALLY missing my dog that died two weeks ago.
    I want another dog. My last dog would stop iin his tracks if you itched his rump or shoulders. He LOVED it!

    my kids would put food by his nose while he slept and watched him dream. His legs and eye lids would twitch. eventually he would wake and snarf the food.

    I/we've always had dogs, I've not lived dogless since I was 13... over 40 years, and that's all I'm admitting to hehe! I can't imagine being without one of some kind!

    I can add one tho... this is the downside of being a dog...

    getting shot with ice-cold water from a hose outside just cuz you were trying to fight off a skunk or rolling in 'whatever' was handiest to disguise your scent, all for the sole purpose of protecting your humans... some thanks!

    though I bet your dog's didn't think so.

    My consolation at not being able to have a dog is my son now has a gorgeous golden retriever puppy and I get to puppy sit some times. My son's a natural with dogs; and seems to have that magic touch when it comes to training them.

    He's ill atm - there's a horrible flu-like bug doing the rounds and now his usual complication has set in. So he's really appreciating having a dog around right now.
