10 Things Your Dog is Most Thankful For

Golden Retriever funning

How did you know all the things I'm most thankful for? Do I talk in my sleep?


Your dog is thankful because:


1. when toast falls on the ground, it always lands butter side down


2. you don’t vacuum all the fur balls under the furniture so she always feels like she has a friend


3. no one has yet figured out how to breed the gene out of dogs that makes them sleep diagonally on the bed with all four legs going in different directions


4. he can always find socks or underwear to carry around the house in the toy box called a “laundry hamper”


5. you’re busy at work all day so she can get her beauty rest and be jumping off the walls by the time you get home


6. humans never sniff his butt because then they’d know all his doggy secrets


7. her super power of cuteness results in snacks, the best spot on comfy furniture, and belly rubs


8. toddlers are the snack delivery system by which when a dog helps herself to a between-meals snack on sticky hands or faces she hears, “Awwww, kisses”


9. your doctor said you need to walk more to bring your blood pressure down


10. you love to love him and he loves being loved

  1. Oh Dog! I am grateful for all that stuff! woo woo woo!

  2. Thanks for helping me justify not vacuuming again this weekend! I feel much better about my poor housekeeping now that I know it makes my dog so happy. :-)

  3. Woof! Woof! h great list … YES I am Golden Thankful. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  4. Thank you, Pamela. I had been concerned that JF and Dewi are spoiled and ungrateful. I forgot about the underwear (JF) and freshly folded, Bounce-scented laundry (Dewi rolls on it). There is hope for them, yet. :)

    Hope you had a happy T-Day!

  5. Really enjoyed the “Thankful” post! :-)

  6. Re: No 3: I would add that the same gene makes them dead weight and impossible to dislodge, no matter how small they are.

    Fun list!

  7. I love the list! I completely agree, and I think one more would be “Because she can set her own work hours every day!” Our dogs seem to be much better and finding balance in their lives than we humans.

  8. alright, i have a confession to make. i sometimes do sniff Georgia’s butt [6.] just to see if she’s done any of that anal sac thing. she has one that prone to be impacted. i also check it every evening for bits of post-digested food that might be clinging – so she doesn’t clean her butt off me or my bed.

    yes, i’m disgusting. so there.

  9. I really like #3. So true!!

  10. Hi Y’all,

    My list isn’t quite that long ’cause I can’t sleep in the bed and there aren’t any little ones.

    Y’all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

  11. When scientists find the sideways sleeping gene, ALL dog lovers will rejoice!!

  12. this was a great post, and #5 is SO true. :-)

  13. 1, 2 and 4 are all my favorites!! , but if course I love them all!! Thanks for the smiles tonight:))))

  14. #2 is so me… I try to catch all of the tumbleweeds, but I’m never successful. Also, I’m pretty lazy when it comes to the ones under the couch. :)

    Great list – I love it!

  15. Those are all great things!!!
