We all know that dogs have some bad habits...
They roll in some really disgusting stuff.
They pee on the chairs at the dog park.
They chew chair legs.
They dig holes in the garden.
They don't come when called.
On the other hand...
They don't pick their noses (even in private).
They don't spit on the sidewalk.
They are never found lying drunk beside their cars on public streets.
They have never slept with Mick Jagger (as far as I know)
They don't deliberately cut people off on the freeway.
They don't judge people based on the color of their skin.
They don't care how much money you have.
Their contribution to global warming is limited to their own emissions.
They do not have or aspire to have nuclear weapons.
Their tails wag, their eyes light up, and their entire body quivers with pleasure when they see us.
What more could we ask?
