Ain’t Nothing Better Than My Dog!

by admin on February 16, 2012


Blog posts that I write about concerning issues with biting, training, or commands are so easy to complete for me.  It’s the blog post that I write about our companions from my heart that are the most difficult.  Not that I don’t have plenty of ideas or I’m not clever enough. It’s just the fact that writing from a place that is very personal takes time. I want my feelings to be transcribed into words that are tangible.

I get many calls from folks asking my advise on dog issues all the time.  I can field those questions with ease. Heck, I’ve been dealing with dogs intimately for years.  I can almost say, “I’ve seen and heard it all.”  Very little surprises me or jolts me out of my seat.

Stories can make me think as well as allow me to show empathy and sincerity. But at the end of my days, Ain’t Nothing Better to me Than My Dogs!

I spend most of my time working with dogs. Sometimes all night long. I’m tired by the end of a day.  Aren’t we all when we’ve worked so hard? But there’s still nothing better than looking down and scooping up my dogs.  I can’t sleep without them.

Their energy fills my bedroom up with joy.  I can’t explain that.  I wouldn’t know how to begin that process.  But that feeling is there.  I can feel it when they’re absent from my home and my heart.  I can feel when they’re sick. I know each of their barks. I can’t explain how. I just know.  I know that I love them more than I love people.  I do.  I’m not embarrassed by that.  It might sound quirky, but it’s true.  Most people can’t hold a candle to the love I feel for my dogs.

I will always miss not being around my dogs.  I might not miss you as much.  Doesn’t mean I don’t like you.  It just means, my dogs get me.  There just “Ain’t Nothing Better Than My Dog!”

Hope you found this fun to read. You can find me on facebook:  Alanna Chasin and Alanna aka The Dog Buddha.

Hugs and Licks!

Jill, I really wanted to you know that you are not alone and I wanted my words to be very specific. Tears will stop after a bit. But never the good memories of our companions who loved us and we them..

Whenever I look at my fur friends, I think about how much I will miss them when their lives are over. But at the same time, I show them how much they are loved and appreciated. Sometimes I’ll get preoccupied with my busy life, and while I am sitting and doing whatever it may be at that moment, I’ll look down by my feet, and my pet will be lying by my feet….:)

Christine, when I wrote this blog post, it took me time to reflect. I feel the same way as you do. I get busy with the day, but at the end of work, or errands, etc. when I am the most calm, I look at all of them and kiss them. They have always centered me, humbled me and they have always loved me no matter what my mood is. Glad you liked this blog post.
