Dogs are dogs, they bark. they dig. I never thought I'd be thankful that my little ollie likes to dig up my blankets. and I let him. better than digging dirt!!!

and yes, I tell my dogs how pretty (for my girl) and how handsome (I call my boys handsomes), and how I love them all the time. way more then I would tell any human. is that wrong?

and yes, Ollie loves to clean me, especially before going to sleep at night, usually my face. But I have seen him clean some of my students, usually licking the hands.

I would say that at my age only true love gets me down on the floor playing "I'm gonna getcha" and "attack the toy". The games get quite wild and I am sure glad that my friends can't see me!

If Charley is sleeping ever so comfortably on my lap, I will not move no matter how uncomfortable I am. I can be crmaped and still not move. I think I'm a little nuts (over Charley too)!

When I have to carefully get into bed, like others have mentioned. When you spend time chasing them every time you put their harness on because the thought of them being hurt in the car if they didn't wear their harness outweighs my annoyance.

I was wondering how long that one would last, Missy!

When you heat up his towels in the dryer so he's not cold getting out of the bath.

When you make sure HE is eating organic food long before you switch your whole (human) family.

When you plan vacations based on whether the destinations are "dog friendly".

yeah, and lots of the other things that people have already posted!

When you have oodles of things to do, but Sam wants his morning nap in your arms. And he snuggles into your shoulder and makes baby noises. We've been at this for about an hour so far. My rule for my rescued dogs has always been that if they ask for attention, they get it.

when you "dis-obey' your husband and stand your ground and get your baby the care she needs because deep down "mother's intuition" trumps ALL rational thinking...

... and when you share every possible veggie you can with her because you know how much she loves them. even though it IS 'people food' . bwhahahhaa.

Tammy, when you've been married as long as I have (and I certainly hope you are!) You will hopefully have learned that marriage is a two-way street, and we gals have to stand up for ourselves (and what we believe) at times. While society pays lip service to gender equality, girls are still raised in a society that makes them feel that it's wrong to stand up to their husbands.

A truly meaningful marriage is only possible when you get to the point that you really ARE equals. That doesn't mean that everything will be a "split decision" but, over time, you find that you bow to him on things that are deeply important to him and he should do the same for you. Just like "fair" for children doesn't always mean "the same", (instead it's making sure that each child has what THEY need) a good marriage isn't really 50/50. It will range from 100% in one direction to 100% in the other direction depending on need. It just sometimes takes a bit to get the GUYS to understand this... testosterone is a powerful thing!
